Three decades of youth participation in Europe

What do you get if you put a birthday cake and 500 volunteers in one room? A beautiful 30th anniversary, of course!

From July 28-30th, 2017 both alumni of the European Youth Parliament as well as active volunteers came together to meet each other, learn about the development of the organisation throughout the decates, as well as gather ideas for its future. Especially the topic of alumni work was kicked off with concrete proposals in a workshop held during the two-day event.

The celebration included a Euroconcert event with outstanding young performers; a reception and get-together; topic-focused workshops on alumni, finances and inclusion; as well as the main celebration, marked by excellent speeches and insights into the meaning EYP has had on its participants’ lives. Watch also the summary video edited by Jan Ruflin from the EYP 30 anniversary.

The anniversary event took place at the 85th International Session of the European Youth Parliament in Brno, Czech Republic. It was hosted by the National Committee, EYP Czech Repulic. Thank you again for an unforgettable weekend of beautiful encounters!
