Geneva 2016, 20th National Selection Conference of EYP Switzerland
The 20th National Selection Conference of European Youth Parliament (EYP) Switzerland took place in Geneva from the 7th to the 11th September 2016. For the first time since the creation of EYP Switzerland 20 years ago, Geneva has been selected as the host city for a National Selection Conference. Indeed, in the last few years, the number of members from Geneva in the organisation has continuously increased and for this reason, Geneva was a legitimate choice to host the flagship event of our organisation.
The conference will gather around 130 Swiss delegates as well as two international delegations from Belgium and Iceland.
This 20th National Selection Conference took place under the theme of « Building Peace in a globalised world ». Participants, who reflected and debated on the theme of peace, had the goal to find effective and innovative solutions to problems that particularly threaten peace in Europe and across the world these times.
