The European Youth Parliament (EYP) is a unique educational programme which brings together young people from all over Europe to discuss current topics in a parliamentary setting. As a network of independent associations, EYP is present in 40 European countries and organises almost 600 events every year. The EYP network organises almost 1.500 days of EYP activity every year, involving close to 35.000 participants. Thousands of young people are active as volunteers all over Europe, making EYP a programme truly for young people, by young people. The organization "European Youth Parliament Ukraine" (EYP Ukraine), registered by the Ministry of Justice of Ukraine in 2002, is a full participant in the process of civil society development. The organisation is not funded by any political party or government. During the existence of the organisation in Ukraine, we were supported by private companies, international foundations and charitable organisations. Close relations were established with the embassies of France, America, Germany, the Department of Youth and Sports of Ukraine, the Department of Education and Science of Ukraine, Auchan, Porshe, the foundation of Konrad Adenauer, Schwarzkopf Schieftung and others. For the last 18 years, EYP Ukraine has provided young people with a framework to deal with social issues, to develop visions for the future shape of continental Europe and to discuss these with one other.
