EXECUTIVE SUMMARY Dear Sir / Madam, Non-governmental organisation “European Youth Parliament” wants tothank you for the opportunity to present you our organisation and we hopeto establish a fruitful collaboration beneficial for both counterparties. European Youth Parliament Republic of Moldova is a republican non-governmental organisation which was founded on the 20 th April 2011 by agroup of enthusiastic and motivated teenagers regarding the creation anddevelopment of an EYP National Committee in our country under theumbrella of EYP International. Initially, we started our activities as an EYP initiative group andafterwards with the support of Slovak AID, we successfully planned andorganized 2 Local Sessions which gathered together 75 and respectively,100 young people from Republic of Moldova, including Transdniestria. After few group discussions and debates, youngsters managed toidentify multiple innovative solutions towards the problems and challengesfaced by our country and the whole Europe. After all the Committeemembers agreed on the solutions provided by EYP-ers, these werecompiled into resolutions which will be presented to specific institutionsand interested counterparties in the form of a Booklet which was made byEYP-ers, themselves. Success of our activities has recommended us not only as crediblepartners in Republic of Moldova but as well as towards our internationalpartners, and thus in May 2012, we became the 37th National Committeewith full membership rights within EYP family, due to fulfilling all therequirements and unanimous vote of the Board of National Committees. This opens new opportunities not only for the development of ourorganization but for all the Moldovan Youth as well: this means we will beable to delegate a group of 5 most active teenagers to EYP InternationalSessions which will be young Ambassadors of our country with other 250pupils and students from other 37 European countries.

ACTIVITIES: The EYP involves well over 20,000 young people at more than 100 regional,national and international events through 37 national organisations every year. The flagship events of the EYP are its three annual International Sessions. Eachof these sessions brings together about 270 young people from 37 countries for 10days in different European countries. All EYP sessions follow a similar programme and are based on the same methodology:  Firstly the participants divide into international committees and take part in team building.  In the ensuing committees the young delegates start working on a current issue of European politics and compose a joint resolution.  Finally, the resolutions are debated in a parliamentary General Assembly following the model of the European Parliament in both English and French.  Through a rich cultural programme with events such as Euroconcert, Eurovillage or the Country Presentations the participants become active and creative themselves and express themselves through music, acting and dance.

  8. 8. Parlamentul European al Tinerilor European Youth Parliament Chişinău, Republica Moldova Chişinău, Republic of Moldova www.eyp.md ; office@eyp.md www.eyp.md ; office@eyp.md What makes an EYP Session? The basic idea of a session is that the delegates come together inmulti-national committees, each committee looking at a different topic.Having taken part in team building exercises, the delegates participate incommittee work, producing a resolution on their topic which is thendebated in General Assembly. This summary is, however, a greatsimplification and cannot begin to do justice to the experience of a session. Each session, though with its own unique character, is largely basedon some core elements, which are detailed below. In all they help with thesession´s goal of giving the participants the opportunity to think about thechallenges facing Europe as well as the chance to get to know each otherand each other´s cultures better. TEAMBUILDING On the first weekend of an EYP session, between twelve and twentystudents from all over Europe get together in a committee. These peoplewho come from very different backgrounds and who have never metbefore, need by the end of the week to befunctioning as a close-knit team pullingtogether and respecting each other. And it is this task that is the aim of theTeambuilding. Under the direction ofexperienced team-builders, in conjunction with the committee Chair, the delegates in committees engage in a variety of indoor and outdoor activities, some physical, others creative, yet others more problem solving, but all of them fun, and all of them designed to get this disparate group of people working as a team.
  9. 9. Parlamentul European al Tinerilor European Youth Parliament Chişinău, Republica Moldova Chişinău, Republic of Moldova www.eyp.md ; office@eyp.md www.eyp.md ; office@eyp.md The culmination of the teambuilding is the teambuildingpresentations, a sketch which every committee has to put together to showto the other delegates, so bringing everyone back together at the end of theweekend, and giving the delegates a last fun creative team exercise beforethe serious business of Committee Work begins. COMMITTEE WORK This is perhaps the central part of any session. The delegates of the committee come together, now working well as a team after the teambuilding weekend, and they sit down to discuss theirparticular topic. Their goal is to write a resolution on this topic on whichthey can all agree. This is not an easy task. They come from very differentperspectives, and will almost certainly have to reach compromises if theyare to find agreement within the time required. To help them in this, each committee has an experienced Chair, anolder EYP alumnus or expert from our partners IDIS Viitorul and ADEPT,who ensures that everybody´s ideas are heard and that the resolutionreflects the ideas of the group - that every member of the committee canfeel proud of it. The discussion is always very heated, but the end result is that eachof the delegates has learnt an incredible amount about the issue, and reallythought about the implications, and have developed and redeveloped theirown views, with a flexible approach paramount. The skills they learn here,in discussing, debating, persuading and negotiating, will stand them ingood stead for the future.
  10. 10. Parlamentul European al Tinerilor European Youth Parliament Chişinău, Republica Moldova Chişinău, Republic of Moldova www.eyp.md ; office@eyp.md www.eyp.md ; office@eyp.md GENERAL ASSEMBLY The General Assembly reunites all the participants of the session, to consider the results of committee work. Each committee presents and defends their motion for resolution, which is then debated for approximately 40 minutes by the Assembly. Thus delegates have to be familiar not only with their own topic but also to some extent with all the resolutions. At the end of each debate there is a vote - based solely on thepersonal conscience of each delegate. Those resolutions which are passedare subsequently presented to the European Parliament and NationalGovernments, and other such bodies. While it is true that the EuropeanParliament has gone on to discuss issues brought up by EYP resolutions,the main aim of EYP is not so much to exert political influence as toprovide an educational experience forthe individual participants.EVENING ACTIVITIESLike all young people, the participantsat an EYP session value the chance torelax from the very hectic pace of thesession schedule, and the eveningprogramme is designed with this inmind. That is not to say that it doesnot continue the emphasis of the otherelements of the session, providingdelegates with a unique opportunity to learn about each other and thediversity of our continent in general. Beyond the time given over togeneral socialising, a number of more formal events take place:
  11. 11.

Euroconcert The talents of EYP-ers are various, and in recognition of the many musically gifted among the delegates, this event is a chance for these musicians to show their abilities, playing a variety of instruments, singing and dancing.Expert DebateThis evening event represents a great opportunity for the delegates to getinto the debating spirit in the run-up to General Assembly, with a numberof invited speakers making speeches on a given topical subject beforeengaging in heated debate with the assembled delegates.Farewell PartyThis is the party that marks the end of an incredible week, the last act ofthe session. Inevitably it is both a happy and sad occasion, happy becausethe delegates have had so much fun, but sad in the knowledge that themorning, after, they all return to their home countries, changed peoplenonetheless.

TESTIMONIALS“Within Local Session which took place in Chișinău, many wonderful things happened to us. One ofthem was the experience of developing and defending our resolutions in front of other colleagues,which certainly improved our public speaking skills. The second thing which is as significant as thefirst one is actually the people that I met here which later became my friends, especially because ofthe fact that I was part of a group where I was theonly boy.I am motivated to get involved in the nearest future inother sessions, including international ones.”Gabriel DiaciucParticipant, 2nd Local Session of EYP Moldova„EYP Session left me only with great impressions;everybody was active at expressing their interestingand innovative ideas. Moreover, I liked the topics ofresolutions.Irina TrancalanParticipant, 2nd Local Session of EYP Moldova“As a delegate within EYP Session, I had an experience which I am quite sure will be very useful formy future. I was delighted with how the session and how things went for the whole three days. It is aninteresting and very useful activity. I think that such sessions should carry on in the future.”Cristina NovacParticipant, 2nd Local Session of EYP Moldova"I am pleased that I managed to discover such motivated people within this project, to actively workin a team, and actually feel like a delegate with full responsibilities as well as broaden my views onissues which our society faces. I enjoyed working with different young people who see things, whichare happening in our country, from different perspectives. This is what united us, and helped us tocreate complex resolutions. If more young people involved in finding solutions towards theseproblems and if these resolutions would be considered and implemented, then I am quite sure, that thesociety we live in would be a better, more beautiful and peaceful place.
