At the European Youth Parliament, we create active citizens. Our participants are problem solvers, and young European leaders.
European Youth Parliament Sweden is a National Committee of the European Youth Parliament (EYP). Our organisation was founded in 1995, and has since then grown into one of Sweden’s leading movements for young and engaged Europeans.
EYP Sweden is a non-partisan organisation, and a forum for open-minded dialogue. Our events are organised by youth, for youth, and aim to establish opportunities for cultural exchange between young people from all over Europe. We work to increase interest in and awareness of European issues amongst Swedish youth, and add a European dimension to Swedish secondary education.
Our mission is ‘to inspire and support youth in exploring their role in a democratic society, through debate and intercultural dialogue’. These words define everything we do, and pervades all of our events. In collaboration with our 39 sister organisations across Europe, EYP Sweden opens the doors to the continent for hundreds of young people each year.
Through our organisation, these dedicated young individuals receive the opportunity to experience unprejudiced debates, partake in cultural exchange, and discuss issues related to the future of Europe – with their equally dedicated European peers.
