European Youth Parliament
The European Youth Parliament (EYP) is one of the largest European platforms for political debate, intercultural encounters, political educational work and the exchange of ideas among young people in Europe. The EYP consists of a network of more than 40 European associations in which thousands of young people are active in a voluntary capacity. With its international, national and regional sessions it reaches out to over 20 000 young people all over Europe every year. The international umbrella organisation of the EYP is the Schwarzkopf Foundation.
