Building a strong European society


BASES – Building a Strong European Society – is a project by the European Youth Parliament in cooperation with the German Federal Foreign Office. It took place from 2015 to 2018, and aimed at enhancing dialogue and mutual understanding as well as broadening the cooperation among civil society in the countries of the Eastern Partnership. In order to achieve these goals, the project included three main pillars:

BASES - Kopie

Support of EYP orgnisations

A series of regional sessions, national conferences and international forums is at the core of the BASES project. These events were organised by EYP Armenia, EYP Azerbaijan, EYP Belarus, EYP Georgia, EYP Russia and EYP Ukraine.


Capacity Building

Capacity building training courses were organised to strengthen the skills of EYP’s young volunteers, enabling them to take up various responsibilities within the EYP network. These included e.g. a training camp in Ukraine, a Diversity Lab in Armenia or a training for moderators and trainers in Azerbaijan.


Travel Grants

Removing accessibility barriers by distributing travel grants to young people who face financial challenges due to the economic situation of their countries formed an important pillar of the project. This allowed them to participate in EYP activities and experience intercultural exchanges abroad
