The call for Finnish Delegates to the Regional Sessions of EYP Finland 2017 is now open! You can apply until the 26th of October. Apply here: https://goo.gl/forms/F02HdvB8lZCYiqeP2 Please note that you cannot submit the application through Members Platform before you have submitted the application via link. The application is open only for Finnish delegates. 

Since 2008, the Regional Sessions of EYP Finland have been a gateway to the world of EYP for hundreds of students in Finland. They have also gained a solid reputation as high-quality events among the international EYP community, as indicated by the high number of applications for Officials’ posts in the recent years. In 2017, the Regional Sessions act as preliminary round of the National Session of EYP Finland, to be held in Turku in January 2018.

Porvoo 2017 – Regional Session of EYP Finland will be held on 10–12 November in the city of Porvoo in Southern Finland. Officials are expected to arrive one day prior to the session for teambuilding and training. The session is Head Organised by Minerva Juhola, Olivia Melaranta and Saga Smith. The session is presided by Halyna Virt (UA). The patrons of the sessions are the current President of Finland Sauli Niinistö, Mayor of Porcoo Juha-Pekka Ujula and member of the parliament Li Andresson.

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.

Solidarity – what does it mean and how can we make it more spread? That is the topic that the videoproject of Axel Aarnio, Ninni Issakainen and Oliver van der Weij of Salo 2017 focused on.
Go and see for yourself – how would you define solidarity and how would you increase it?
