Zaragoza 2019 - 14th National Selection Conference of EYP España

03/04/2019 to 07/04/2019 
in Spain

'Empowering the youth'

Zaragoza 2019 will be the 14th National Selection Conference of EYP España and it will take place in Zaragoza from April 2nd to April 7th under the session theme 'Empowering the Youth'. It will be head organised by Marina Bueno, Susana Carreras and Elena Vela. Almost 100 delegates coming from 11 regions of Spain will meet at Zaragoza to debate about how to empower youth.
 

Youth, on the spotlight

Zaragoza 2019, is wholeheartedly conscious that the youth is the future of Europe and, essentially, the future of society. We are the ones who will face tomorrow’s issues; we are the ones who will make the decisions and we are the ones who will shape our world and guide it in what seems to be an era of perplexity, where time seems to fly and technologies seem to advance faster than we do.

 

Zaragoza, the best environment

Zaragoza is a city located in the north-east of Spain. Throughout history, it has been under the domain of the Roman Empire (I century A.D), the visigoths and the Muslim (from VIII century to XII), before it became the capital of Aragon’s Kingdom. Located just in the middle between Madrid and Barcelona, it has always been a key spot in the Spanish political, social and economic reality. 
 

Empowering the youth, our mission

We are fully aware that, for the youth to be prepared to face all the controversy that is coming into place, we firstly need to learn, to listen and to understand. And that is our main objective in Zaragoza 2019. We want to empower the youth through knowledge and experience. We want to provide them with tools to become more critical with the world around them.

We want Zaragoza 2019 to be a life-changing experience where not only the participants will feel empowered throughout the session, but they will also end up being deeply conscious of the importance of being self-critic with our surroundings. We want the participants to understand that we cannot wait for society to make changes, to take big steps; but we can only step up ourselves and, by taking small steps, create big changes in that so called “society”.

⏳ 3 weeks. It’s been more than 3 weeks since this photo was taken and we still can’t stop thinking how amazing Zaragoza National Selection Conference 2019 was. Thank you Zaragoza! Thank you for being such an unforgettable experience. Thank you for all the laughs, all the new friendships and all the meaningful lessons.

📖 And last but not least, we want to conclude this post with a quote from the lovely president of the session, Tim Weber: “If Zaragoza taught you anything, I hope it taught you kindness”.

🧠Memories are one of the most valuable things we have. That's why we asked to some participants of Zaragoza NSC 2019 What would they like to be remembered for and What would they like to remember about being young when they’re old?

🍃 We are all afraid of something. This is what makes us humans in the end... But, sometimes, our fears can become a real obstacle in life. Whenever this happens, it is time to stop running away and face them. It might be difficult at first. However, I promise it won’t be long until you suddenly feel a breeze of fresh air and see how your fears blow away

💭 As EYPers we get to learn about an incredible amount of topics. We get to discuss, debate and look for solutions together. As part of the change movement the world needs, we decided to ask participants to get into the Sustainable Development Goals promoted by the United Nations and tell us what are they doing to work towards their development.

💪 This is a short call to action clip: to make you reflect, to raise awareness on this initiative and to assure that we keep the wheel spinning towards a common goal.

✨ As a part of such a multicultural environment, we often find ourselves reflecting on how we see other people and on how the others see us.We asked participants to use the same accessory and show their personality through it. Why? Because lamps may be different but often the light is the same.
