The European Youth Parliament España network is not made up of only its more than 250 active members. Year after year, more than 130 public and private Spanish schools count on our philosophy and attend the regional sessions.

Internationally we are known as 'La Familia' because of our closeness, character, enthusiasm and ambition. A family of young people, education centers, institutions, companies and media organisations that since 2006 have been heading towards a Europe built by and for young people.
The European Youth Parliament is an apolitical and non-partisan organisation with an educational spirit aimed at the needs of European youth. The EYP encourages young people to have critical and independent thinking mindsets and facilitates the learning of social and political skills, crucial in their future.
Since 1987, dozens of thousands of enthusiastic young people have participated in regional, national and international sessions, and have made friendships across Europe and contacts that cross borders.
Furthermore, the EYP has contributed to the development of the European unity and identity. Today, it is one of the largest platforms in terms of political debate, international meetings, learning and exchange of ideas among young people. It is formed by a network of 40 European associations and organisations resulting in thousands of young participants actively volunteering. The organisation carries around 200 events every year. It is a program carried out by the Schwarzkopf Foundation.
Thorbjörn Fälldin is currently the main member of the EYP Comité d'Honneur formed by the former President of the European Parliament, Martin Schulz; the president of the European Commission, Jean-Claude Juncker and the High, representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, Federica Mogherini
