KU Leuven has been cooperating with EYP Belgium since 2018. Due to their financial, logistical and academic support, young Belgians and Europeans are able to experience democracy at first hand and learn about topics that will shape their future.
Our projects take place all over the country. We are thankful that many local governments welcomed us with open arms. Their support is crucial to organise projects as large as ours are. Due to their backing, many young Europeans were able to enjoy the best Belgium has to offer.
With the 1st Benelux Youth Forum in 2018 to collaborating on Kortrijk 2022 - 97th International Session in 2022, the Benelux Union has been a reliable and longtime partner of EYP Belgium.
EYP Belgium is a partner in strengthening cross-border cooperation with The Netherlands and Luxembourg. Our future is a shared one and addressing common challenges is therefore crucial.
In collaboration with the Benelux Union, the Benelux Parliament adopted climate policy recommendations formulated by the youth during the 2nd Benelux Youth Forum at their plenary session in December 2021.
Traveling across Europe to Belgium can be challenging for young people. We collaborated with various partners to lower the hurdle for youngsters to enjoy what our organisation has to offer.
In a diverse society, various people and groups face differing challenges. Refugees and people with a migration backgrounds often face difficulties participating in events like ours. Therefore, we have partnered with UNHCR to include refugees in our activities to strengthen their position in our society.
Ministry of Foreign Affairs
For a couple of years, EYP Belgium and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Belgium have cooperated on multiple projects together. From Parlons Ensemble d'Europe to Liège 2019, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Belgium has been an amplifier of young Belgian voices on the European continent. Their financial contributions and institutional support over the years have resulted in an impactful network of young Belgian change-makers.
EYP Belgium is grateful that it receives regular financial and logistical support from various European partners. They make it possible for us to raise awareness about European democratic values and help us in our mission to empower young Europeans.
Belgium is home to a bunch of beautiful regions. With the support of regional governments, we are able to host our projects in Belgium's most magnificent regions.
Chamber & Senate
EYP Belgium has the honour to organise projects in the Chamber of Representatives and the Senate. It gives our participants the opportunity to experience the magnificent building that the Palace of the Nation is.
Between 2017 and 2022, we collaborated with the Bernheim Foundation to empower Brussels youth through the project Europolis.
For Mechelen 2018 - 3rd International Forum, we collaborated with Proximus and Microsoft.
