The European Youth Parliament (EYP) is a unique educational programme which brings together young people from all
over Europe to discuss current topics in a parliamentary setting. As a network of independent associations, EYP is present in 40 European countries and organises almost 600 events every year. The EYP network organises almost 1.500 days of EYP activity every year, involving close to 35.000 participants. Thousands of young people are active as volunteers all over Europe, making EYP a programme truly for young people, by young people.
The European Youth Parliament’s mission is to inspire and empower young Europeans to become open-minded, tolerant and active citizens.
Today the EYP is one of the largest European platforms for political debate, intercultural encounters, European civic education and the exchange of ideas among young people in Europe. The EYP network is present in 40 European countries, where thousands of young people are active as volunteers. The entire network organises almost 600 events every year.
The Berlin-based Schwarzkopf Foundation is the international umbrella organisation of the EYP.
The European Youth Parliament (EYP) Cyprus is one of the 40 National Committees that work under the umbrella of the EYP (co-ordinated by the Governing Body and International Office of the EYP in Berlin).
As a result, the EYP Cyprus National Committee seeks to promote the work of the European Youth Parliament in Cyprus and our main aim is to organise EYP events on the island.
EYP Cyprus has been organising events since 2006 and has up to date reached more than three thousand young students coming from schools from all over Cyprus.
