European Youth Parliament
Six students from 1º Bachillerato who attend our school were selected to take part in the Regional Selection Conferences of the European Youth Parliament (EYP) España, also known as “Regional Sessions” from Friday 8th February until Sunday 1oth February at ICADE. If you would like to know more about this project: eype.es/sesionesregionales.
Since 1987, the European Youth Parliament supports the development of young people to be politically aware and responsible citizens by involving them in European political thinking and promoting intercultural understanding.
The aim of these events is not only to engage students in debates regarding social issues but also raising awareness of European institutions, nations, citizens and current political topics. The European Youth Parliament España also strives to foster the representation, defense and promotion of the interests of young people and young adults. Furthermore, they want to provide them with a platform where they can reflect, learn and debate about topics that affect them directly and that they perhaps would not have access to debating otherwise.
Our students were working incredibly hard throughout the weekend with different sessions, consisting of teambuilding (Friday), committee work (Saturday) and culminating in the General Assembly on Sunday. They did such fantastic job that our school has been one of the four chosen schools to attend the 14th National Selection Conference of EYP España in Zaragoza from 3rd April to 7th April 2019. Congratulations!
