European Youth Parliament : a unique experience. (2020 Vitoria-Gasteiz)

Urko, Zahira and Xabi (4th DBH) and Eneko, Iñigo and Febo ( 1st Batxilergo) took an active part in the regional conference of the European Youth Parliament held in Vitoria -Gasteiz (14th /16th February) together with their peers from other schools. We are really proud of you !!

Before the start of the session, students received a list with different topics covering a political, social, humanitarian or cultural problem currently faced by Europe. They were divided into six groups known as committees (Foreign Affairs, Culture and Education, Human Rights, Environmental Affairs, Women´s Rights and Gender Equality and Terrorism). The result of Committee Work was the draft of a series of proposals to solve the problem they were discussing. This document is known as a resolution and was presented to the rest of committees and debated between them at General Assembly.

The European Youth Parliament (EYP) is an apolitical and non-partisan organisation with an educational spirit aimed at the needs of European youth. The EYP encourages young people to have critical and independent thinking mindsets and facilitates the learning of social and political skills, crucial in their future. Today, it is one of the largest platforms in terms of political debate, international meetings, learning and exchange of ideas among young people
