Our Sessions


Our sessions simulate the working-procedure of the European Parliament. They aim to increase cultural exchange between young people from all over Europe and to help these young people develop their knowledge about and interest in European issues.

A session is divided into three parts:


The first step of every session is teambuilding, an informal, but intricately planned day specifically devoted to group development. Teambuilding aims to create mutual trust and friendship within the working group. Through team building, the participants of the session learn to listen, respect and understand each other. They procure tools they will need to succeed throughout the rest of the event.


All participants are divided into committees, that are led by a moderator. Each committee spends 1-2 days discussing a specific topic related to European issues, ranging from foreign policy to women’s rights and sustainable development.

Through Committee Work, the committee works to analyze and find solutions to a given problem. Together, they write a resolution. This part of the session initiates the simulation of the European Parliament working procedure.


Each session is concluded by a General Assembly, where all committees present and defend the solutions presented in their resolution. Our General Assembly procedure is identical to the one used in the European Parliament. All participants of the session are encouraged to partake in each debate and to study each committee topic before the session.

Every year, more than 30,000 youth take part in the activities organised by EYP across Europe. EYP Sweden works hard to offer opportunities for schools and individuals to travel abroad, to one of our 39 sister organisations.

These schools and individuals are recruited through our annual National Selection Process, open to all Swedish secondary schools.


The first step in our National Selection Process is our Regional Sessions. They are held in the four largest regions of EYP Sweden; north, east, west and south. Schools and individuals that participate in these sessions are recruited by the respective Regional Boards.

The regional sessions are comprised of a three-day programme, including teambuilding, Committee Work and General Assembly.


From the Regional Sessions, the top-ranking schools are invited to attend the annual National Session. The National Session is comprised of a four-day programme, including teambuilding, Committee Work, General Assembly, and a cultural programme.

International SESSIONS

From the National Session, schools and individuals are selected to participate at EYP events abroad. The four top-ranking schools are selected to represent Sweden at the autumn and spring International Sessions, the only events that engage participants from all 40 National Committees of the EYP. EYP Sweden aims to be able to offer all participating schools at the National Session a possibility to partake in a session abroad.
