About The European Youth Parliament ( EYP )
The European Youth Parliament is one of the largest platforms for young citizens in Azerbaijan and more than 40 European countries to support open-minded discussions and debates on political, social, economic and cultural issues around the world, and to create consistent and sustainable solutions. The session we are currently working on aims to create an environment in which young participants can express their views on various topics in a welcoming environment. Since its creation in 1987 as a school project in Fontainebleau, France, the European Youth Parliament (EYP) has created a safe environment for students from different cultures to build long-term friendships at regional, national and international conferences with the participation of tens of thousands of young people.
The main goal of EYP Azerbaijan is to involve young people in educational and informational activities within the general motives of EYP, and simultaneously to contribute to the international voice of Azerbaijani youth.
