For 30 years, the European Youth Parliament (EYP) has had a lasting impact on its participants: it has provided young people with meaningful opportunities to experience and celebrate Europe’s diversity, and to make friends across the borders.
For many young people, however, attending an EYP session abroad is not affordable - due to the cost of travel.
Help an EYPer in need by supporting their travels to an EYP session!
Show your solidarity and help us make EYP more welcoming and accessible. As a "travel buddy", you can make a real difference in someone's life!
Your contribution will foster a more diverse and inclusive EYP community: young people from diverse backgrounds will have a chance to get their travel costs subsidised/covered thanks to your donation, and to take part at EYP events - thanks to your help!
If 100 EYP alumni each chip in with 50 € - then we can support 50 EYPers who would not otherwise be able to travel with their trip to a session abroad... You can also subscribe for regular, monthly or yearly donations to support this need permanently.
The fund will be allocated based on applications, according to individuals’ motivation and financial needs. Last year, we helped 4 young people from Ukraine, Austria and Iceland to attend an event in Yerevan (Armenia) and in Valencia (Spain). Check out their video message here
What participants are saying about the travel subsidies:
‘Without the travel help I would not have been able to travel. Receiving the money made it much easier for me to take holidays from work and be a trainer for the EYP' (18 y.o. Participant from Ukraine traveling to Germany)
