Reykjavík 2019 - 2nd National Selection Conference of EYP Iceland

16/10/2019 to 20/10/2019 

Sustainability - Modern solutions taking the lead

European Youth Parliament Iceland is excited to announce the 2nd National Selection Conference of EYP Iceland, which will be held in Reykjavík, from the 17th to the 20th of October 2019 (16th to the 20th of October for officials). The four-day event will gather around 70 delegates who will be introduced to the organisation and the aspects of a session. The first day will consist of the Teambuilding, the second day will be Committee Work and the third General Assembly.

European Youth Parliament in Iceland is still a National Initiative and this session next October is only our second one. Iceland has had a long history with innovative solutions and is especially known for its geothermal energy which currently generates around 25% of the country’s total energy production. The motto of the Session is "Sustainability - Modern solutions taking the lead" and therefore we want to specifically share the Icelandic expertise on renewable energy with the rest of the European youth. 

At the Session, every committee will have a specific focus on sustainability and we are aiming for a Carbon Neutral Session. As an unconventional part of the programme, both delegates and officials will visit an Icelandic geothermal power plant in order to see how renewable energy is produced in practice.

 

This session will be head-organised by Ásthildur A. Kjerúlf (IS) and Tómas Torini Davíðsson (IS). If you have any questions regarding the session you can contact them at eypiceland.nationals@gmail.com
