Salo 2017 – Regional Session of EYP Finland
Solidarity and Stability, Building Blocks for a Brighter European Future

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.
The president of the session, Tim Backhaus (FI), is looking forward to the upcoming session:
Brexit, populism, terror threats, refugee crisis and Eurocrisis - all of these elements are threatening the common European future that we have been striving for. Salo 2017 will be tackling these issues in a youth-centred manner under the session theme “Solidarity and Stability, Building Blocks for a Brighter European Future".
However, Salo 2017 is not only about academics. As a President, I will ensure that this session fosters an environment where every participant can grow as a person. I believe that the session should be a platform where everyone’s individual strengths are highlighted and their areas of improvement are exposed so that every participant can improve and expand their skillset and apply their newly gained knowledge during the different session elements. However, I hope that participants will take away the valuable experience they had in Salo back home with them and fondly remember them as they set off for a brighter future after the session.
I hope that you will join me in Salo 2017, and make it a memorable session for every participant!
