Open and inclusive programme for all young people 

The European Youth Parliament embraces and celebrates the diversity of the European continent, and is open to all young people across Europe. We want to reach to youth from all regions, backgrounds and cultures, and strive to make our activities more accessible to those who are facing obstacles. Our ambition is to provide a welcoming and safe environment for participation, learning and for taking responsibility.

“No matter what your background is, everyone is welcome and everyone is given an opportunity to participate in the European Youth Parliament!”

With refugees

Thanks to the cooperation with the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR), questions concerning refugees and migration have become an integral part of EYP debates in the framework of international sessions. We involve young refugees and stateless persons in our sessions, invite experts and encourage participants to engage with the topic based on that experience.
