Welcome to the page of european youth parliament poland!
European Youth Parliament is a platform for civic education, exchange of views and intercultural meetings of young people.

Participants are encouraged to practice independent thinking and to take their own initiative for both their own development and the development of Europe.
“Topics that have been taken during EYP Poland meetings show that young people are not afraid of difficult debates. I am very happy that young people know how important the European Union is, supports our activities and supports our initiatives. Youth is the future of Europe.”

“If I said that EYP changed my life, it would be a huge understatement. Lifelong relationships, listening skills, expanding perspectives and horizons are just a drop in the sea from what I owe to my adventure with EYP and the people who build these organizations”
SLAVA MELNYK Managing Director of Campaign Against Homophobia
“EYP was the first one to open my eyes to my abilities. Then, with every next session, I learned how to implement them and how crucial interpersonal relationships are in this process. But an extended perspective, confidence and foreign experience are not everything. Having discarded language and cultural barriers and fear of change, EYP gave my life a direction and now it is achievable to keep following it”
ALEKSANDRA PALUSZYŃSKA Economy Student at the Northwestern Univeristy, Illinois
“EYP teaches tomorrow’s competencies: creativity, critical thinking, problem solving and teamwork. Thanks to EYP, I also gained self-confidence – without it, I would certainly not have sent my application to the European Commission.”
