Regional Selection Conference Hoorn 2019

22/11/2019 to 24/11/2019 

The second Regional Selection Conference in 2019-2020 will take place in Hoorn (North-Holland)

The dates will be the the 22nd to the 24th 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.

“Since we first attended a Regional Session in Hoorn, we have both been dreaming of organising a session at our own school. As we attended and reflected on more conferences we noticed that EYP is about more than just Committee Work and General Assembly; EYP is about the experience. Our aim is to make Hoorn 2019 a session where everyone is free to let their voices be heard and develop personally, academically and socially. As most delegates will be first-timers, we find it very important to make everyone feel safe and comfortable and to give every participant the opportunity to experience everything that EYP can offer them. We believe that a hard working officials’ team that is dedicated to perfecting every second of the session is crucial to achieve these goals.

We both agree that there is nothing as important as having a great time at a session. We both value welfare, comfort, fun and the ability to learn in a ‘relaxed’ environment among all participants above anything. Making sure the mainly first-time delegates go home feeling like they have had an amazing weekend and that their opinions matter is our top priority. Good and productive work can only take place when everyone is feeling good. We want to satisfy the needs of all participants by, for example, providing proper and varied food and creating a well thought-out schedule that allows for getting some rest when needed.

Lastly, we want to aim for a session where academics and fun are perfectly balanced. We want to create a challenging and educational environment that focuses on the development of all participants with regards to their knowledge on and involvement within the EU, but also on personal and social level. We want to create a space that is educational for both officials and delegates with their personal welfare always in mind.

In short, our ideal 'Hoorn 2019' would be a session that is planned perfectly yet able to adapt to everyone’s individual needs, a session that makes first-time delegates feel comfortable and motivated within EYP, a session that makes it possible for experienced participants to further develop as much as possible and a session that can serve as an example for any future EYP session with regards to participants’ welfare.”

The fourth Preliminary Round was hosted in a small Amsterdam-like city hidden between Den Haag and Rotterdam: Delft! With it's typical cannals and prestiges houses and churches it's a really good looking city. And it has more in common with our organisation than you would expect. Frederique Buining and Luke De Laceyacey explored the similarities between EYP and Delft in this Media Project. Enjoy watching!
