National Selection Conference of EYP Czech Republic 2018

21/03/2018 to 25/03/2018 

EYP Czech Republic will celebrate its 20th anniversary since its creation in 1998! For two decades, we have been guiding and allowing young people to discuss topical issues, realise the importance of active citizenship, and we have been helping them develop their skills and personalities.The 20th National Selection Conference (NSC) of EYP CZ will thus mark this significant jubilee – in Karlovy Vary (Carlsbad), where it will gather 160 participants (of which 90 Czech Delegates as well as international Delegates) from all over Europe between 22–25 March 2018.

Delegates from various Czech high schools will debate current European as well as world topics revolving around the theme of health, healthcare, medicine, and their development. Medicine is changing every day and the inventions and use of many new technologies evoke numerous controversial questions. The conference will also focus on traditional methods that are becoming popular again. The aim of the conference is thus to allow the participants to discuss such questions, make their own opinions, and gain new skills and knowledge.

The conference will also entail a rich cultural programme throughout which the participants will have the opportunity to learn more about the traditional aspects of medicine, i.e. spa culture, which is greatly typical for Karlovy Vary. The Delegates will have been selected based on the selection process of the preceding Regional Selection Conferences (RSCs) that took place in Kutná Hora and České Budějovice in autumn of 2017. The most successful Delegates will have the opportunity to take part in international conferences of the EYP abroad and represent Czech Republic in other European countries. Nonetheless, all the participants of the RSCs as well as the NSC are warmly welcomed to engage in EYP further and participate in the various types of events that EYP Czech Republic organises every month.

The event is Head Organised by Ivana Madejová and Aneta Šeráková (CZ). The session is presided by Marta Sznajder (PL). The head of the Media Team will be Oskar Košenina (PL). The leading individual for the Jury Team will be Maxmilián Sup (CZ).

The jubilee 20th National Selectional Conference of EYP CZ Karlovy Vary 2018 has found its President, and now, Marta together with Ivana and Aneta are looking for team members! To be more specific, we are currently seeking 2 Editorial Assistants (focused either on Photography or Videography), 7 Media Team Members, and 3 Jury Members! Do not miss the chance to celebrate the 20th anniversary of this NC and experience a session focused solely on healthcare with the theme: 'Medicine for a prosperous world', and apply! The call will be open until February 16, 2018 23:59 CET.

Since Karlovy Vary 2018 will focus on health, medicine, and their development, the logo represents the paramount health and progress symbol of a DNA double helix. Additionally, the 20th anniversary of EYP CZ has been incorporated by the two Xs. Lastly, the colour and perhaps a different representation of the shape (a water spiral) are there to symbolise the numerous healing hot water springs so very typical of this beautiful spa city. 🙌🎈💧⛲
