The creation of the Young European Parliament (YEP) dates back to 1987 and has opened offices in 32 countries. Its French branch has existed since 1994 and promotes Europe among young people by fostering their involvement in its construction.
A wide range of actions have been carried out so far :
– Selecting a short-list of high school students to represent France during YEP international meetings
– Providing young people with non-formal trainings about the EU institutions
– Organizing information campaigns about Europe respecting political neutrality
All these activities allow French youngsters to get concrete insights about Europe as well as to arouse their entrepreneurial spirit.Author :
