Participants

Participants of International Sessions of the EYP come from over 35 European countries – member states of the EU as well as members of the Council of Europe, such as Turkey, Russia or Norway. There are many stages and phases of involvement for both teachers and students. Essentially, the EYP is a school programme and there are many on-going opportunities for both teachers and students to contribute to the organisation, academic progress and ethos of EYP.

Delegates

The majority of the participants are the delegates, for whom the session is organised. Munich 2013 will gather over 300 young Europeans, aged between 16 and 22, from more than 35 different countries. Congratulations for those, who have been selected to participate as a delegate in the 72nd International Session of the European Youth Parliament. All information regarding delegates, such as Welcome Booklet, travel forms or other important documents will be published on this website.

Board

The team of chairs is led by the Board, consisting of the Session President and three Vice Presidents. The Session President is an older active EYP-alumni, who has a wide recognition within the EYP community. The president is chosen by a Presidential Selection Panel, appointed by the Governing Body of the EYP. They plan and carry out the officials’ training prior to the session, coordinate the work of the chairs’ team and lead the different ceremonies and the debates in the General Assembly.

Chairpersons

The chairpersons play a very important role in the session. They are there to guide the delegates and facilitate their preparation of a Motion for a Resolution, to be discussed at the General Assembly, the climax of the session. Each committee will be led by one chairperson, through the whole session. The team of chairs is in turn chaired by the Board consisting of a President and three Vice-Presidents.

Media Team

The media team consists of internationally selected alumni of the European Youth Parliament. Under the lead of Sophie Debrunner Hall (CH), the media team contributes to the academic work of the participants, captures unforgettable moments of the session and assists the Chairpersons in the support of the delegates’ work.

All information regarding teachers, such as the teacher programme, travel forms or other important documents will be published on this website. In case you have not received any email with the information provided below, please contact teachers-support@munich2013.eu for any questions. 

Organisers

The organisers of the 72nd International Session of the European Youth Parliament have already been preparing for many months to ensure the session will run as smooth as possible. The team is divided in various subgroups in order to both utilize unique competences and improve each other’s organising skills. Most organisers have already taken various roles in previous sessions and thus enough experience to further improve session elements and work on new concepts.
