Welcome from the Head Organisers
Dear participants of Delft 2021,
First of all we would like to warmly welcome you to the fourth and final regional selection conference of EYP NL!
We are Aniek and Pepijn, Head-organisers of Delft 2021. This means that we are ultimately responsible for all organisational aspects of the session. Normally, that would mean providing you with food during lunch and coffee breaks, or making sure the venues of the session are all in order. However, as you will already know, this year is a bit different. Instead of a physical venue, we have a digital one. Instead of typical large communal energisers, we energise in front of our devices. Perhaps most importantly, instead of being able to meet and get to know you all in person, we have to make due with the digital tools at our disposal.
However, EYP would not be EYP if we shied away from a challenge. If there is anything we have learnt in our years as alumni, it is that EYP and its members are resilient, adaptive, and innovative. The past three regional selection conferences have shown us that a digital session still allows you to experience EYP in its fullest. So while the challenges that these times present us with might seem daunting at times, it is imperative that you remain aware of your strengths and resilience.
We feel that the coronavirus pandemic has made the theme of this session even more important. The stress of being stuck at home has made it all the more important for people to be more aware of their physical and mental needs. Furthermore, the social obligation to adhere to governmental rules to slow the spread of the coronavirus has increased the need to be more aware of your own actions and your contribution to society.
As for now, we recommend that you become aware of the contents that are in this booklet and familiarise yourself with the organisation and the programme. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to reach out to us.
To conclude, we hope you are as excited about the session as we are. We are beyond excited to meet all of you! EYP is a special organisation, and it makes us very happy to get the opportunity to share it with you.
Welcome to Delft 2021!
