Last weekend over 50 volunteers from two different countries, the Czech Republic and Norway, gathered for training events to develop their session programmes further and to ensure a smooth flow for the upcoming Trondheim&Røros2017 - 84th International Session of the EYP in April and Brno 2017 - 85th International Session of the European Youth Parliament in July. Will we see you there?

We hope you all had a great start into 2017! For the EYP and the Schwarzkopf-Stiftung Junges Europa it will be a year full of new adventures and projects. If you are curious what these are, take a look at it yourself!
The Annual Report of the Schwarzkopf-Stiftung Junges Europa - Schwarzkopf Foundation Young Europe 2016 is now online!
To get a first glimpse of the activities of the foundation and the European Youth Parliament in 2016, read the full report here:
2016 was a busy and successful year for the International Sessions. The sessions in Dublin&Belfast, Rennes and Laax connected almost 900 young Europeans all together.
We are equally excited at what the future holds in store for the network in 2017: Trondheim&Røros2017 - 84th International Session of the EYP, Brno 2017 - 85th International Session of the European Youth Parliament and Tbilisi International Session, as well as EYP will turn 30 years old! Looks like 2017 will be just as exciting as 2016!
