    Get involved in EYP-Europolis Belgium

    Since 1987, the European Youth Parliament supports the development of young people all over Europe into politically aware and responsible citizens by involving them in European political thinking and promoting intercultural understanding. EYP-Europolis is the Belgian branch of this young, dynamic organisation and is led by a team of young people who organise events for students and youth aged 15 and older.

    Are you young, currently living in Europe (not just the EU), open-minded and curious to discover alternative views, experience other cultures and meet new people? Do you have an interest in issues that affect the society we live in and do you like to discuss currently relevant topics with young people from other European countries? Do you appreciate the value of fun? Then EYP and EYP-Europolis Belgium may just be right for you! Why not give it a try?

    There is a wide range of possibilities to get involved in EYP. The easiest way is to get in contact with our organisation by sending an email to, but you are welcome to join us at any of our upcoming alumni events. You can also find us on Facebook.



    The EYP is one of the largest European platforms for political debate, intercultural encounters, political educational work and the exchange of ideas among young people in Europe.

    Five times a year EYP Belgium organises a conference where young people from all over Europe meet each other  to discuss topics that are currently on the political agenda of the European union.

    If you want to write about or visit one of these unique events or interview one of our board members you can contact us as for further information.
