As a not-for-profit organisation, we heavily rely on our partners in order to realize our events. We are very happy to be able to partner up with organizations that share our values of democracy and active citizenship. With their support we can increase the positive impact the EYP has on its participants, such as teaching young people skills in critical thinking and public speaking. Does your organization also want to play a part in empowering today’s youth? Support our organisation!
