WHAT IS THE EUROPEAN YOUTH PARLIAMENT ACTUALLY?
The European Youth Parliament is a multinational project that helps young Europeans to understand European politics as well as learn to work in a team, strengthening participation and forming friendships across borders. The network and all its events are run by young volunteers. The Forum is a project by the German National Committee of the EYP.
WHAT WILL AUGSBURG 2018 LOOK LIKE?
The main part of the event is a parliamentary simulation where each participant has the opportunity to voice their own opinion. Split up into international working groups, the participants then come up with a resolution on one of Europe’s most pressing challenges of foreign and peace policy each. Expanding on the usual EYP format, working groups will also get input from other working groups and independent experts in Interactive Modules and a Press Conference. Afterwards, the results are discussed and voted upon in the General Assembly at the end of the event. The simulation will be supplemented by a varied cultural and evening programme. The preliminary programm can be found here.
WHAT IS THE TOPIC OF AUGSBURG 2018?
100 years after the end of World War I, the world still faces a variety of conflicts and challenges. In the “city of Peace” Augsburg, the participants will occupy themselves with some of the most pressing issues in European foreign and peace policy: What stance should the European Union take towards the Iran Nuclear Deal of 2015? What will the future of the Korean peninsula look like? How can we facilitate fundamental human rights in the 21st century, and what is the right path to European integration on security matters?
WHO IS BEHIND AUGSBURG 2018?
The event is head-organised by Janis Fifka & Timotheus Riedel (Germany), presided by Arman Gasparian (Armenia) and edited by Alex Blin (France). Additionally, we are very proud to announce that Federica Mogherini, High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, will be the patron of the event. Furthermore, we are happy to have gained the support of the Erasmus+ programme, the Doris Wuppermann Foundation and the City of Augsburg.
WHAT ARE CONDITIONS TO PARTICIPATE?

Your contribution to the event’s funding is a participation fee of 90 €, covering accommodation, meals and transport throughout the event. Travel costs from and to Augsburg unfortunately can’t be reimbursed, but you will be provided with a guide on how to finance those expenses.
MESSAGE FROM THE PATRON OF AUSGBURG 2018
„The work of the European Youth Parliament in bringing together young people to discuss the future of Europe, in particular the European Union’s Common Foreign and Security Policy, is vitally important in today’s international context. As you know, under the framework of the EU Global Strategy, we have tried to set out some key prioities and challenges that the European Union must confront now and in the years ahead. We have already made significant progress in security and defence cooperation, which has been driven by a changing international context. It is vital to build public support and understanding of these steps, and indeed future generations will be most affected, hence the importance of the European Youth Parliament and the International Academic Summer Forum you are organising. We – at the European Commission and European External Action Service – would be interested in hearing some of the conclusions of the Forum. I wish all the participants every success for the event.”
Vice-President of the European Commission &
High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy
