EYP Concept


There is proven procedure of the EYP sessions, which consists of three essential phases: Teambuilding, Committee Work, and the General Assembly.


 The first phase of the session, where participants in the role of delegates gather for the first time in their chosen working group called a committee, each consisting of 15 people from various countries. Through various games and teambuilding activities they get to know each other, learn how to cooperate and start working as a team. This is a very important part of the session as it will have a huge impact on the participants’ experience at the session.

Committee Work

The delegates will have chosen their committees according to their preferences of the committee topic. Each committee is assigned a certain topic, usually a current European or global issue, and delegates are required to discuss the issue, come up with possible solutions and draft a resolution.

General Assembly

During the last two days, all committees reunite to present and discuss the results of the Committee Work. Each committee presents their motion for a resolution, which will pass through a debate involving defence and attack speeches, discussion of amendments, open debate and, lastly, a voting procedure. The resolutions that pass are forwarded to the patrons of the session and European decision-makers. Thus, it has a special meaning for the participants, as it is adding a special value to the voice of the European youth, which can motivate them to continue being active citizens and shows them that it is possible to make a difference.

During the whole process, from Teambuilding to General Assembly, each committee is supervised by an experienced member of the EYP, a Chairperson who provides the committee with support and guidance.

Cultural Programme

Opening Ceremony & Closing Ceremony; official parts of programme with distinguished guests and inspiring speakers welcoming the participants and officially opening/closing the session.

Eurovillage; the delegations representing their countries will bring traditional food and drinks and present their culture to others. This is a great opportunity to taste new and interesting things as well as to learn about the habits and traditions of different cultures.

Euroconcert; a cultural event allowing the participants to show their artistic talents through musical, dance or other artistic performances.



The Delegates are the group for whom the EYP session is organised. Expressing their own opinions, they seek compromise on their controversial committee topics during the discussions of Committee Work and defend their resolutions using their debating skills during General Assembly.

The Chairpersons guide the Delegates through Teambuilding and Committee Work to General Assembly. Being experienced EYP participants, they act as facilitators within the Committees.

The Journalists produce newspapers and videos during the session and capture all the memorable moments of the session. Since the tight schedule of EYP events often leaves little time to reflect and absorb, the work of the Journalists helps to retain and create memories.

The Organisers prepare the session in advance and are responsible for its smooth running.

EYP sessions are organised by teams of committed young people. All of them work voluntarily in order to provide other students with the same positive EYP experience they themselves enjoyed.
