The European Youth Parliament (EYP), founded in 1987, is a non-partisan, non-governmental, independent and unique educational programme designed to engage young people in shaping their future society. The EYP is one of the largest European platforms for political debate, intercultural encounters, political education and the exchange of ideas among young people. The organisation involves thousands of young people in voluntary roles across the continent. The EYP is under the patronage of the President of the European Parliament and the Secretary General of the Council of Europe and is managed by the Schwarzkopf Foundation.
About EYP Serbia
The European Youth Parliament (EYP) Serbia actively engages young people directly at the high school level. Hence, smaller sessions are organised at schools using the EYP’s approach for the discussion and debate of European topics:
- to provide an opportunity to discuss and debate European issues and encourage students to discuss political questions and articulate their own opinions;
- to provide a possibility to deepen one’s knowledge of the issues in question;
- to make students aware of the EYP and to provide them with a chance to participate in future international events of the EYP of a longer duration.
