Östersund 2018 - 6th Northern Regional Session of EYP Sweden

29/11/2018 to 02/12/2018 
in Sweden

Östersund - The Heart of Sweden

Östersund 2018 will be the 6th Northern Regional Session of EYP Sweden. 

''EYP is a politically independent platform which encourages the discussion of practical politics, furthering solutions as opposed to pandering to a certain political stance like what a youth association may easily fall into. Practical solutions to actual problems are what develops and evolves in our world. We want to provide a wide range of youth as possible with the ability to discuss practical politics within the EYP which is why we stretch our grasp to the northernmost parts of Sweden where the political capital can, on occasion, seem very far away.''

- The Head Organisers of Östersund 2018

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be the hero of a video game?

We have imagined how it would look in the context of an EYP session.

The Stockhomies Media Team has carried out a number of projects related to the theme of the session: "Heroes of Our Time", which will be posted throughout the day.

The first project was carried out by Christina Velisaridou

“The force is strong with those ones.”

Heroes. As young people, we have the force required to bring change into our world. We pose as fighters because that is what we are. We light up bright, learning, growing, becoming heroes of our times.
