Cultural evenings, discussions on politics, the environment and more, and countless crossings of European borders - this is what the BASES (Building a Strong European Society) project of the European Youth Parliament was this year about!
A shout-out goes to EYP Armenia, European Youth Parliament Russia - EYP Russia, Eyp Georgia, EYP Belarus, European Youth Parliament Azerbaijan - EYP Azerbaijan and European Youth Parliament - Ukraine for their dedication and implementation of impactful events throughout the year.

Meet Marilou Pelmont, the new intern at the International Office. Marilou is from France, and she got involved in EYP 9 years ago. She is now studying Anthropology of International Development in London. We are happy to have her join our office for the next three months and help with the international sessions portfolio and alumni management.
