Over 50 volunteers gathered in Hamburg this month to prepare for the 91st International Session of the EYP, our flagship event taking place at the end of September. Three days were filled with peer-to-peer trainings, brainstorming, discussions, academic input and practical preparations. Commitment level: 💯💯💯
We're very excited to share some more info about our collaboration with the United Nations Population Fund UNFPA Eastern Europe & Central Asia. With the partnership, we can support the organisation of national and international events and bring together youth from different backgrounds to debate topics such as sexual and reproductive health, gender equality and youth participation. Now, how great is that!? 🙌🙌

The PowerShifts project unites young people to develop pathways for a transition towards sustainable energy consumption. 🔌 EYPers Anastasia Lemberg-Lvova and Utkan Dora Öncül designed facts and solutions from EYP sessions all over Europe where energy topics were dicussed into these vibrant Power Pamphlets! They can be used both as a poster and as individual cards to present the outcomes and as inspiration for future discussions. How beautiful are these!!? 😍 #PowerShifts #YoungEnergyOpinion #designskills #prettyyyy
We want EYP to be a safe environment for everyone. 🤗 That's why we have a Welfare Policy, a Policy for Safeguarding Safety and Dignity and a Safe Core Team working to apply them. All EYP National Committees are in the process of appointing a National Safe Person and in the future, there will be a safe person at every event. All of them will get online training and exchange knowledge and best practices with each other so that they can support participants and advise on policies and applicable laws.
I'm happy to share a resource meant to support with pre-session delegate preparation. While most of our events foresee academic preparation kits in one form or another, boards have to constantly reinvent the wheel and cover similar topics from scratch.
Oulu will be the fourth and last Regional Session of EYP Finland in 2019. The Session is Head Organised by Ms. Johanna Tikkala and Ms. Eveliina Kyllönen. The President of the Session will be Ms. Kerstin Reisinger (AT).
