The final part of our project is concerned with the future of Europe. We are not only developing ideas and visions for the future, we are also taking a closer look at the political processes that are involved in creating new policies. We are happy to have the European Youth Parliament as a partner for this project.
The European Youth Parliament (EYP) is a unique educational programmewhich brings together young people from all over Europe to discuss current topics in a parliamentary setting. Its mission is to support the development of young people into politically aware and responsible citizens by involving them in European political thinking and promoting intercultural understanding. The EYP is a non-partisan and independent programme; its methods are based on non-formal education and peer-to-peer learning. Thereby the programme facilitates the learning of crucial social and professional skills and encourages independent thinking and socio-political initiative. eyp.at
At our final meeting our students will discuss issues like climate change, foreign policy, refugees and migration, and the possibility of a European Army.
