The 8th National Session, presided by the lovely Monica Moisin, successfully took place between 28-31 August 2014, at the state of the art premises of UCLan Cyprus, Pyla. The session welcomed almost 100 delegates from all over Cyprus and approximately 50 officials from Cyprus and all over Europe. Participants were fully integrated in the world of EYP by taking part in all three integral elements every EYP session is comprised of, which are Teambuilding, Committee Work and the General Assembly.
The key event of the General Assembly offered delegates the opportunity to discuss current and crucial European affairs under the Session theme ‘Reflecting, Rebuilding: Emerging Stronger’. Guest speakers such as the Ambassador of the Netherlands, Ms Brechje Schwachofer and Member of the European Parliament Mr Costas Mavrides attended the Opening Ceremony.
The Panel Discussion ‘Discussing Europe’ under the theme of ‘Empowering the youth: the workforce of tomorrow’ was also an integral part of the Session. Three respected guest speakers, Commissioner for Volunteering and NGO’s Mr. Yiannis Yiannaki, Assistant Director of EY Cyprus Mr. Nicos Marcou and the President of the Youth Board Cyprus Mr. Panayiotis Sentonas discussed topics falling under the general theme of the event with the aim of encouraging dialogue with the youth.
EYP Cyprus would like to thank everyone who took part, as well as our generous sponsors and supporters found on the Partners page of our website.
