Our Mission

"The European Youth Parliament is a peer-to-peer educational programme that brings together young people from across Europe to debate the pressing issues of our time. Our mission is to inspire and empower young Europeans to be open-minded, tolerant and active citizens."


What We Do


Open Forum for Youth

We provide a forum for young people to develop and express their opinions on European political and social issues in an open and welcoming environment.

Intercultural Dialogue

We support intercultural understanding and peacebuilding by bringing young Europeans with different backgrounds closer together to share ideas, opinions and practices.

Skills Development

We present young people across Europe with diverse opportunities for personal growth and skills development through non-formal and peer-led educational activities.

Network of Changemakers

We create a network of the next generation of diverse, young changemakers, equipped with the knowledge and skills needed to positively shape the world around them.

Regional Sessions Of EYP Norway 2021

This years Regional Sessions of EYP Norway took place in February. This year they were held digitally, due to Covid-19. These were the first digital sessions of EYP Norway. Their shared vision encompasses many of the key elements EYP Norway focus on as an organisation.

«How to pave a path for a greener world” – This is the theme that was explored by officials and delegates at EYP Norway’s Regional Sessions 2021.  

National Session 2021

Our National Selection Conference 2021 will be held in Bergen! The topic is: “Reinventing out future; reaching higher summits”. 

Bergen is a city with endless possibilities! The session will take place in a city with a rich cultural life surrounded by beautiful nature, and with a goal of going fossil-free by 2050. The desire for change is present, but the path is not yet paved. Bergen has the potential to become a leading city when it comes to the development of innovative resources. If Norway is to reach its climate goals to cut emissions by 55% in 2030, we have to drastically change the way we live. We believe that we will be able to reach these goals if the youth’s voices are heard. By utilising the resources we already have around us in new and different ways, we can make it. We therefore wish to focus on creativity and innovation during the whole session, because without breaking with our current thought patterns, we will not find solutions for the future.
