That moment when the European Youth Parliament is mentioned as a key example of meaningful youth participation during the first ever open debate on Youth, Peace and Security at the United Nations Security Council last Monday #Youth4Peace 🤗👊
In Austria, the Project Forum Henriettenplatz just finished. European Youth Parliament Austria - EYP Austria organised the special three-day project during which 40 students from Austria, Norway, France, and Germany got to know EYP as part of an Erasmus+ project addressing European identity. They broke new ground with the close cooperation with schools and hope to build on this experience in the future!
Yesterday, the European Policy Centre in Brussels hosted 30 young professionals from 15 countries for the 2nd EYP Alumni Happy Hour. With a talk on the EU’s strategic challenges in 2018 and many old and new friends connecting, the evening was a great succes!
