19/07/2017 to 30/07/2017
   

Seeking the Heart of Europe

The 85th International Session of EYP will take place from 19 to 30 July 2017 in Brno, which is, with its 400,000 inhabitants, the second largest city in the Czech Republic. Brno is primarily known as the centre of higher education – with 4 public universities and 13 institutions of higher education in total, it gives an opportunity to study and explore the beauty of this city to nearly 90,000 students. The event motto – ‘Seeking the heart of Europe’ – reflects our goal to encourage active citizenship in everyday life, to strengthen common European goals and values, and to introduce participants Central European culture. A great focus will also be given to reaching consensus through mutual understanding, fuelling enthusiasm for volunteering, and promoting the city of Brno, South Moravia Region, and the whole Czech Republic. The Head Organisers, Michaela Novotná (CZ) & Michal Koláček (CZ), who are the leaders of the organising team, have been working hard since summer 2015 on preparation of the session in order to achieve a great experience for all participants during which they find themselves astonished by the high importance of their actions in today’s complex world. The Chairs' Team will be led by Mr Vivek Gathani (UK), and the Media Team by Ms Giada Benfatto (FR) and Mr Matthijs Quaijtaal (EE).

Špilberk Castle is a hilltop castle and a dominant feature of the city, which will host us for the session's Eurovillage. Its construction began in the 13th century and it has been a royal seat until the 17th century when it became a major baroque fortress and prison. Today, it is a national cultural heritage and part of the Brno city museum buildings.

The puzzle is complete! The last organisers have recently joined the Organising Team and with that we could not be more excited to continue this wonderful journey of #is17brno!

We would like to introduce our Organising Team, which has been working hard on forming the session. We truly admire their dedication and hard work, which they put into the session every day. They also demonstrate that the element of active citizenship Brno 2017 strives to promote is not indifferent to them. What does active citizenship mean to each member of the Organising Team? Have a look!
