Maastricht 2021 marks the 4th International Forum of EYP The Netherlands, gathering 200 participants from all over Europe from the 13th to the 21st of April 2021 to debate political issues, exchange ideas and discover new cultures. This is the first time that the EYP is bringing an International Conference to the city Maastricht – perhaps the most European city of the Netherlands. 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 are aware that measures to combat the spread of the coronavirus may still be in place in April next year. We want the event to happen in a safe and healthy manner and are developing contingency plans for different scenarios – please ask us about the details. We are in constant contact with our partner countries about travel restrictions and what they will mean for our participants. Get more information HERE.
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.
