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.
