Run by young people, for young people
Just like all other EYP events, International Sessions are organised by young people, for young people. The majority of those who take part in an International Session are participants. Participants are selected by their National Committees, usually through a competitive selection process at the national level – for example, at a “National Selection Conference”.
At the session, young people also take on various other roles as moderators, organisers, or members of the “media team”. They are selected by a selection panel, composed of representatives from the hosting National Committee, the Governing Body of the European Youth Parliament, and previous active EYP members who have held the positions at previous sessions.
Since 1988, more than 90 International Sessions have been hosted in 29 countries and in more than 70 different cities, allowing over 20,000 young people to experience the EYP spirit and learn how to collaborate across borders. A complete list of the EYP’s International Sessions can be found here.
