The European Youth Parliament (EYP) is a unique educational programme which brings together young people from all over Europe to discuss current topics in a parliamentary setting. EYP has been established in 1987 in Fontainebleau, France as the school project. Today, as a network of independent associations, EYP is present in 40 European countries which makes EYP one of the largest European platform for education, debates and exchange for ideas among youth.
The EYP network organises almost 1,200 days of EYP activity every year, involving 30,000 participants. Thousands of young people are active as volunteers all over Europe, making EYP a programme truly for young people, by young people.
