Learning From the Past, Shaping the Future

The 87th International Session of the EYP will take place from 14-22 July 2018 in Vilnius. A city with a unique harmony of historical architecture and modern development, Vilnius is a fitting environment for generating ideas for the future. Inspired by Lithuania's 100 year anniversary, the theme of the session is "Learning From the Past, Shaping the Future". Participants will explore the importance of past occurrences and their reflection in rationally building the future. Moreover, they will be able to discover how the cause-and-effect relationship of the past, present and future has affected them and Europe as a whole. The Head Organisers of the session are Emilija Rakštelytė, Gintarė Valėnaitė and Vilius Paškevičius. Their team is working hard to create a memorable event for all participants. Stay tuned for calls for the session leadership and other participants - these will follow in the next few months.
