THE REGIONAL SESSIONS,
WHERE THE JOURNEY BEGINS
The students of 4th of ESO and 1st of Bachillerato can participate in our Regional Selection Conferences (Regional Sessions), since they are the main access route to the European Youth Parliament (EYP) and the best way to live this experience to its fullest. Therefore, one of the main responsibilities of the European Youth Parliament España (EYPE) is to select, through Regional Sessions, the students who will represent their region in the National Selection Conference (National Session), which this year will take place in Zaragoza from April 3th to April 7th, 2019.
During the academic year 2018-2019, EYPE wants to reach a greater number of autonomous communities in comparison to previous years. Thus, this year a new Regional Session will take place in Córdoba. In figures, this year EYPE is hosting 14 Regional Sessions, reaching all corners of Spain. We are not only expanding into new areas, but we are also consolidating existing regions.

A Regional Session follows the same structure as any other EYP session, it lasts for two days and is an opportunity for many young people to get to know EYP. In 2019 there will be 11 Regional Sessions in the cities of (in chronological order) Girona, Palma de Mallorca, Malaga, Barcelona, Seville, Bilbao, Madrid, Valencia, Santiago de Compostela, Huesca and Zaragoza. Students can show their English language skills, their public speaking skills, and their confidence in defending a resolution.
