About us

The European Youth Parliament (EYP) is a unique educational programme which brings together young people from all over Europe to discuss current relevant topics and intercultural education in a parliamentary format. 

The European Youth Parliament was founded in 1987 as a school project at the Lycée François-Premier in Fontainebleau, just south of Paris. The first International Session was also held there in 1988. In 2004 the National Committees of the EYP mandated the Schwarzkopf Foundation to act as an international umbrella organisation for the EYP. Following this, the EYP has continued to grow steadily as a Berlin-based platform Schwarzkopf-Stiftung Junges Europa. 


As a network of independent associations, EYP is present in 40 European countries and organises almost 600 events annually involving close to 35.000 participants.


EYP Russia was established in 2006 as a branch of the wider European Youth Parliament, a non-partisan and independent educational platform. Since then, EYP Russia has hosted four National Selection Conferences, several Regional Selection Sessions, many University and School Sessions, EYP Weekend Sessions, Trainings and dozens of other EYP events welcoming international delegates and high-profile speakers.



Regional Sessions take place in the country’s regions involving local proactive youngsters.


National Sessions serve as selection platforms for participants to be delegated to the International Sessions and engage a wider network of EYPers.



International Sessions are the flagship events of EYP. EYP organises three International Sessions every year. Each brings together about 300 young people from around 40 European countries for 9 days each.
