General Information

Since our founding in 1990 we, the European Youth Parliament in Germany (EJP), have offered young people between the ages of 15 and 25 a space to voice their opinions on European topics and make friends all across the continent. Our extended parliamentary simulations allow our participants to directly experience European politics.

Shaping European Politics

We want to have fun developing new ideas for our continent even though we do not have a political mandate. It is our own future that is at stake!

For Young People by Young People

All of our events are organised by young volunteers. This makes our events so special and creates the space for others to get involved.

Non-Partisan and Independent

We do not have a political mandate. Instead we are actively engaged in political education. For this we remain independent of any political parties.

International Network of the EYP

The EJP belongs to the international network of the European Youth Parliament (EYP). The EYP is currently represented and actively engaged in around 40 countries.
