EYP ​Greece

The European Youth Parliament in Greece (EYP Greece) constitutes a non-profit organisation, independent of political and party interests. Founded in 1992 in Thessaloniki, it took its current, official legal form in 1994 and is one of the 41 National Committees of the international network of the European Youth Parliament. EYP Greece is committed to organising consistently and with the voluntary participation of young people, 2 National Selection Conferences (NSCs), in Thessaloniki and in Athens, on a yearly basis.

Under the theme "From Global to local, from Local to global", Riva del Garda 2016 - 1st International Forum of EYP Italy was held between the 6th and the 12th of November, 2016, gathering 80 delegates from several European countries, including ours. Our delegation, which consisted of 12 motivated Greek young students from Athens and Thessaloniki as well as 2 chaperones Mrs. A. Kontogianni and Mrs. C. Karkantzinou, had an active presence during the Session.

We are confident that this experience will be the first step from the many to follow in the world of EYP!
