Executive Director of the European Youth Parliament
The European Youth Parliament (EYP) is an independent, non-partisan educational programme which currently reaches young people in 40 European countries. We are not limited to the borders of the European Union, but rather strive for open discussion of pan-European political issues and intercultural exchange across the whole continent. Our mission is to inspire and empower young Europeans to become open-minded, tolerant and active citizens all over Europe. The result of the EU referendum in the UK does not change this: our mission remains the same. Whether yesterday’s results influence our work in the United Kingdom remains to be seen, but it is clear that we will continue our activities as before, in the UK and all over Europe.
