The European Youth Parliament provides young people with a forum to develop and express their opinions, as well as get equipped with the knowledge and skills needed to positively impact the world around them. We work to promote intercultural understanding, constructive dialogue, and creative problem-solving. As such, our activities have a measurable impact on young people across Europe.
Solving problems in collaborative and democratic ways
Every year, the EYP helps 30,000 young people from across Europe develop and express their opinions, set and follow ground rules for peaceful collaboration, and suggest solutions to pressing modern-day challenges.
Developing skills and growing as a person
The EYP encourages independent thinking and initiative amongst young people and facilitates the learning of crucial social and professional skills, like teamwork, tolerance and problem-solving, as well as communication and leadership skills.
Engaging with current topics in dialogue with decision-makers
Discussions during EYP events cover a wide range of topics, such as international politics, human rights, climate change, health and energy. High-ranking European politicians and decision-makers regularly visit our events and interact with our participants.
Building intercultural understanding and friendships
After a typical EYP event, more than 90% of participants report that by taking part, they have increased intercultural understanding and built international friendships.
Inspiring new ideas to positively shape the world
