An EYP session would be nothing without its participants. The Chairs, Media and Organising teams are the Officials of the session and they lead the delegates to help them get the best out of the event.
The President has many functions during the session. Throughout the session, she co-ordinates the different groups of participants: the delegates, journalists, chairs and organisers. As the public face of the session, the President and board (consisting of two or three Vice-Presidents) chair the debates during the General Assembly, ensuring that the official procedures are followed.
The Chairperson of each Committee is the delegates’ immediate guide through the session. As experienced former delegates from all over Europe, they plan and lead teambuilding, facilitate discussions in Committee Work and encourage their delegates throughout General Assembly.
EYP sessions have the tendency to rush by in a blur of intense experiences, in particular for delegates. The session press team, made up of Journalists and the Editor, serve to crystallise the events in various different media, most importantly the session newspaper. Session newspapers can host a variety of content: photographs, interviews with participants or speakers, articles on the session and its events (from academic to light-hearted) and pieces on current affairs.
As former Delegates, the journalists understand well the wishes and needs of the Delegates and with their session presence provide a lighter counterweight to the more serious debates of Committee Work and General Assembly. In addition to the chairs, one Journalist is assigned to each Committee.
The Organising Committee consists of 18 highly motivated students from all over Switzerland. Since the March 2015 8 of them, the members of the core team, have been preparing the foundations of the session. In September 2015 10 more joined them to work towards a perfect event and more will become part of the Orga Team as the session draws closer.
The Delegates are the heart of the session. The majority of session participants being delegates, the officials (Chairs, Journalists and Organisers) are there solely to inspire a new generation of European youths for the politics and cultural exchange EYP has to offer. During the session, the delegates are provided with a platform to exchange their opinions and political views freely with other interested youths and to debate current issues.
