Regional Session Vienna 2017

16/02/2017 to 18/02/2017 

Green Movement

Over 70 participants from all over Europe will gather in Austria's capital in February to discuss the most pressing issues in the field of sustainability and find solutions for them.

While the European Youth Parliament Austria is providing a platform for the exchange of ideas, it is also vital for us to host an event that is as sustainable as possible. All participants should be aware of the waste of resources, environmental pollution and a sustainable lifestyle in general. Our goal for the event is to have a carbon footprint that is as small as possible.

The RS Vienna 2017 is presided by Patrik Bruschek (AT) and head-organised by Anna Tauber (AT) and Klara Weismann (AT).

There are a lot of things we miss about the session, and the amazing food provided by RITA bringt's is absolutely one of them!

In keeping with the session's theme, the vegetarian and vegan dishes, delivered with a load wheel, were freshly cooked and contained 100% organic local ingredients. In addition, there was a comprehensive carefree package with dishes, service staff and a tailor-made food selection left nothing to be desired.

An Interview with the Head Organisers of Vienna RS 2017, Anna Tauber and Klara Weismann.

"There were hard times, times when we struggled with miscommunication. But in the end of the day, when we say something we both mean it. I know that she will always defend me and have my back."

Daša Pogorelec (SI) chats to the stellar duo that made this session possible!

The session may be over, but the Media Team still have plenty of content coming your way!

Now, Enea Bordon (IT) takes us back to the Improv Theater Night...

"I think it would be fair enough to say that anything can happen when you give freedom of expression and imagination to a bunch of unconventional delegates and tell them to perform on an EYP stage.

Once more, it has been proven that EYP is much more than debating current issues and trying to tackle them. In fact EYP involves an overdose of creativity, FUN and of course, of happiness!"
