Brno 2017 – 85th International Session of the European Youth Parliament
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.
