Tampere – National Session of EYP Finland
Start date: 01 Aug 2016, End date: 31 Mar 2017 PROJECT  FINISHED 

A series of four regional youth events around Finland during 2016 will culminate in an international youth conference in Tampere in January 2017 – marking the 100 year anniversary of Finnish independence. This event will gather around 170 young people from all over Finland as well as across Europe. The project aims to discuss current political issues, promote mutual understanding and a stronger European identity among the participants. By taking part in the project, the young participants will experience a simulation of the workings of the European Parliament and articulate their views on current European issues, by working in multicultural and international working groups. Topics will cover all relevant areas of European society, focusing on the theme of “Global Development as a Driver of a Sustainable European Economy”. This project will help the participants to acquire long-term competences, cultural awareness and respect, tolerance, democratic participation skills, and offer them the possibility to engage as volunteers afterwards. The project will be organised by voluntary active young people aged between 18 and 22, making it an almost entirely volunteer and youth driven project.
