This morning our country lost a war hero and for many also a paternal figure - HRH Grand Duke Jean died aged 98.
As an Irish Guard he was one of the soldiers arriving on the French beaches on D-Day and he later reigned over Luxembourg from 1964 until 2000. EYP Luxembourg wants to express its sincere condolences and will join in the period of mourning. His Royal Highness with his wit and charm will be dearly missed!
Rout a Fridden, Monseigneur!
For the second version of "Faces of EYP Luxembourg", we're proud to present one of EYP Luxembourg's oldest members, Jana Degrott. Currently a law student at the Université Saint-Louis in Brussels, Jana talked to us about how much EYP helped her grow.
🇪🇺How did you start EYP?🇪🇺
Before I started EYP I was already involved in youth organisation which mainly focused national related topics. After one year of being active in the national youth parliament, my interest in EU related topics grew, this led me to join EYP LU.
The EYP Summer Academy is an international training event gathering representatives from all 40 EYP member countries aiming to support their work in their National Committees by providing training modules for their board members.
Today we're introducing a new segment in which we'll present some of our members and their link to EYP LU. The project is called Faces of EYP LU. We're kicking it off with Patrick, who co-started EYP LU and presided our national committee for 2 years.
how did you find out about EYP?
"I joined EYP in 2011 during an International Forum in Wiesbaden, I got to know about the project through a friend I'd met a 2 years before at a youth conference in Athens"
