Maastricht 2021 marks the 4th International Forum of EYP The Netherlands, gathering 200 participants from all over Europe from the 15th to the 20th of April 2021 to debate political issues, exchange ideas and discover new cultures. Due to the ongoing pandemic, we have changed the format to an online event: the 200 participants will join via video connection. Instead of bringing participants to Maastricht, we will bring Maastricht – perhaps the most European city of the Netherlands – to its participants. Under the theme “The Digital Generation: Setting an Innovative Agenda” our participants will debate current topics and come up with innovative solutions. Along the way, they will learn critical thinking skills and make friendships across borders.
We provide a forum for young people to develop and express their opinions on European political and social issues in an open and welcoming environment.
We support intercultural understanding and peacebuilding by bringing young Europeans with different backgrounds closer together to share ideas, opinions and practices.
We present young people across Europe with diverse opportunities for personal growth and skills development through non-formal and peer-led educational activities.
We create a network of the next generation diverse, young changemakers, equipped with the knowledge and skills needed to positively shape the world around them.
