We have hosted many events in the past, but these two really stand out:
International Session of the EYP in Amsterdam
This event took place 2-11 November 2012 in Amsterdam and gathered over 300 youngsters from more than 36 European countries in the Netherlands. All information about this event can be found on the website and Facebook page.
2nd International Forum of EYP the Netherlands in The Hague
From 3-8 November 2013, The Hague was the host city of the 2nd International Forum of EYP The Netherlands. Not only is it the third largest city in The Netherlands, with a population just over 500.000, it is also the political heart of the country as the seat of Dutch parliament, government, the Supreme Court and Council of State. Furthermore, The Hague is a city of international allure, as it is both the host city of the International Court of Justice and the International Criminal Court.
Delegates from all over Europe came together to discuss ten different topics, all connected to the session theme “Young Energy for Europe”. All information, the topics, and results can be found on the website and Facebook page. The project report (in Dutch) is also worth a read.

The Prize is awarded to projects undertaken by young people which foster understanding, promote the development of a shared sense of European identity, and offer practical examples of Europeans living together as one community.
