Porvoo 2017 – Regional Session of EYP Finland will be held on 10–12 November in the city of Porvoo in Southern Finland.

The president of the session, Halyna Virt (UA), is looking forward to the upcoming session:
Finland is a truly special EYP destination for me since it was there that I first plunged into the world of chairing two years ago. Therefore, returning to this wonderful country as a President feels as if I am coming back to my second EYP home. I am convinced that this session will be a unique experience for every participant and I will do my best ensure that everyone leaves the session with atleast one new skill or piece of information. I’m sure that despite the cold weather, which is likely to be the case in Finland in November, we will manage to create an atmosphere of warmth, growth and support together with Olivia, Saga, Minerva, our future Editor and our respective teams. Don’t forget to submit your application to this incredible event!
The session will gather around 120 participants and the programme includes one day of Teambuilding, one day of Committee Work and a day of General Assembly. The theme of the session is Exploring Active Citizenship in European Democracy.
