The registration for Spring sessions has closed!
EYP Finland's Spring regional sessions 2021 are organized 9.-11.4. and 23.-25.4.2021.
Regional Sessions are three-day (Friday-Sunday) events where you get to simulate the European Parliament. All participants are approximately between ages 15 and 22. The sessions are organised completely in English but don’t worry if you don’t know the language that well: the goal is to learn it!
Participants are divided into small groups, Committees, where you get to discuss a current European topic and develop a Resolution to help the situation. You will improve your teamwork and communication skills. The resolutions are finally debated with all participants in a lively General Assembly where you get to practice your speech and debating skills.
During the session you will make new friends around Finland and Europe through various Teambuilding activities.
The sessions are a great way to learn more about internationality, European affairs, the European Union, and debating. You can take our word for it: over 90% of last year’s delegates would recommend sessions to their friends, and rated sessions as 4.49 on a scale of 1-5.
