International Session in Trondheim
Start date: Jan 1, 2016, End date: Aug 31, 2017 PROJECT  FINISHED 

The International Session of the European Youth Parliament in Trondheim will bring together 280 young participants from 27 European countries, including local youth from Trondheim and Norway. The theme highlights the impact events like this can have on participants, as well as on their direct and indirect environment. During eight working days, the event will create a unique parliamentary simulation for the young delegates to work together, learn from each other, and experience parliamentary democracy first hand. It will offer them a unique experience to directly engage with decision-makers. The participants will divide into fifteen international working groups to discuss a current European topic and to draft a resolution by formulating their own ideas. They will also receive input and be in dialogue with experts and politicians during this process. The resolutions will then be debated in a two-day General Assembly, according to the rules of the European Parliament. Additionally, the International Session will include a series of cultural events promoting intercultural exchange and dialogue and celebrating Europe’s rich cultural diversity.By participating in Trondheim 2017, the young participants will go through a non-formal as well as informal learning experience aimed at the promotion of European citizenship, active participation, democratic procedures and values and intercultural dialogue. Within the project, we wish to encourage young people to actively participate in discussions currently on the political agenda as well as to learn new skills through working in international multi-cultural teams on challenging political topics.The event is an entirely youth driven project, organised by voluntary active young people aged between 18 and 26. EYP Norway hosts the event and is supported by a steering group of close 5 partners, including the applicant. A bigger group of 22 sending partners select participants from additional countries to Trondheim, bringing a total of 27 countries together.
