Regional Selection Conference Ede & Wageningen 2019

08/11/2019 to 10/11/2019 

The first Regional Selection Conference in 2019-2020 will take place in Ede and Wageningen (Gelderland)

The dates will be the the the 8th to the 10th of November for Officials. Officials include a team of 8 chairpersons (leading 8 committees), a small media team with Editors and a small Jury team to select delegates for the National Selection Conference. A Regional Selection Conference starts on Friday for CMOJ-training. On Saturday morning, delegates arrive for a day of teambuilding and committee work. On Saturday evening, Eurovillage as well as an evening programme will take place. On Sunday, General Assembly will be held.

“We have three main pillars on which our session rests: participant welfare, sustainability, and the incorporation of Wageningen into the session. We chose these as we want all participants to have a good opportunity to develop, to reduce the carbon footprint of the session, and to give attention to the mentality present in Wageningen.

To facilitate participant welfare, all participants should get the opportunity to get enough sleep and be able to have proper breaks. We would also like to encourage inter team bonding by having buddy groups, in which the officials will be able to discuss their experiences during the session with members of different teams in an informal environment. For delegates, we want to ensure they are entertained during the resotyping phase as well, as usually this is when they lose their immersion in the session and they get bored.

As many other sessions have aspired to, we would like to ensure our session is as sustainable as possible. We plan to do this via traditional routes such as reducing the use of paper and using biodegradable materials. However, we would like to expand this to include the topic of food waste. We plan to use as much food as possible that would otherwise go to waste, and will collaborate with partners and initiatives that actively try to reduce food waste. Moreover, we will donate any food we have left over to foodbanks.

Wageningen is famous for its university, but in many other aspects of the city the same mentality and focus is present. There are many companies that are innovative in both sustainability and food, an important issue in the EU. The municipality is also governed by a green party, setting up ambitious sustainability goals for the city. Most importantly however, the attitude of the people in the city reflects this focus as well. We want to transfer this mentality into the session as well.”

- Micah and Saskia, Head Organisers

We are very proud to present to you the logo's of this year's Regional Selection Conferences of EYP the Netherlands. Each logo represents a famous aspect of the host city. They were designed by our Head of Design Yu Vos.

Ede & Wageningen: the wheel is the logo of the municipality of Wageningen. It depicts a 'wagenwiel'. The plants symbolise the focus on agrarian research by the Wageningen University and the consequential association of the city with plants.
