Types of Events

My project (3)

Outreach Events

Outreach events are the smallest-sized events that our National Committee Organises. These events include EYP Days and Outreach Weekends, where the goal is to get to know the organisation and how it works. These events usually take one to two days, and resemble the format of our flagship events, but in a shorter and more compact setting. Outreach Events usually gather around 40 people.

Regional Sessions

Regional Sessions are events which simulate the work of the European Parliament. The session consists of one day of Teambuilding, one day of Committee Work and one day of the General Assembly. Regional Sessions are the most frequent type of event throughout the whole network. Regional sessions usually gather around 70 participants.

National Session

The National Session is the biggest event held on a national level. The format of the event includes one day of Teambuilding, two days of Committee Work, one optional cultural day, as well as one to two days of the General Assembly. This event is held once per year and it gathers around 130 participants.

International Sessions

International Sessions take place two times per year in one of the National Committees. International Sessions bring together members of every National Committee and showcasing best practices of the network.  During an International Session, or in short IS, around 300 young people from 40 European countries debate the pressing issues of our time, based on the EYP Methodology. Since 1988, nearly 100 International Sessions have been organised in more than 29 countries and 70 different cities.

Elements of a session

Teambuilding

Teambuilding is the first official day of the session, and the day the delegates arrive. During Teambuilding, delegates in their committees get to know each other through many games and a range of activities. The goal of Teambuilding is to establish good communication and trust between delegates so that they can work together on the resolutions during the coming days. This day is devoted to group development, and although informal, it is yet delicately planned to create trust and friendship within the group.

Committee Work

All participants are divided into committees and are led by a Chairperson. The committees spend one to two days discussing a specific topic and coming up with a resolution to the given topic.

The topic is analysed in detail and the committee is tasked with finding problems for the topics, as well as solutions. These are then presented in the final format, the resolution. This part of the session simulates the work of the European Parliament.

Examples of topics that were previously discussed are brain drain, sustainable energy, woman’s rights, inflation, education, cultural heritage and many more.

General Assembly

The General Assembly is the last part of every event. During the General Assembly, the delegates gather to present their resolution to other committee and then debate with each other based on the resolutions which were written.

The debate happens in a moderated, parliamentary way, which resembles the work of the European Parliament.

In the end, all the delegates vote and thus decide whether the resolution of a certain committee will pass on the voting of the General Assembly.
