The European Youth Parliament (EYP) is a unique educational programme, which brings young people from all over Europe together to discuss current topics in a parliamentary setting. Its mission is to contribute to the development of skills and knowledge of young people by creating a platform, which fosters a free exchange of ideas and teamwork through intercultural dialogue.
The EYP is a non-partisan and independent programme. Its methods are based on non-formal education and peer-to-peer learning. Thereby the programme facilitates the learning of crucial social and professional skills and encourages independent thinking and socio-political initiative.
The EYP is a pan-European organisation which does not limit itself to the current political borders of the European Union. As a network of independent associations, EYP is currently present in 40 European countries, enabling contacts across borders. The EYP thus offers a platform for intercultural meetings, fosters mutual understanding and makes a vital contribution towards a united Europe.
