Dear participant,It is my honour and pleasure to welcome you to experienceEYP in Krakow in May. The organisers have been workingdedicatedly to make the session happen and arrange for all thedetails we’ll be able to enjoy during the five days in Krakow.The session will gather participants not only from Poland but alsofrom Europe beyond that. This to show the diversity and therichness of the continent we inhabit and will make our experience evenmore fascinating. The days will be full of possibilities to gain newknowledge about European issues and discuss current questions withother young EYPers. Seven years after the biggest enlargement ofthe European Union will be the central theme throughout the sessionand I believe EYP is a wonderful forum for discussing the recentphenomena.My own story of being born in Bosnia and growing up in Sweden isa testimony to the European integration; and I look forward to hearingall your stories and experiences.As much as EYP is about personal development, it offersmoreover an environment for making lifelong friends andbecome inspired by different people from different backgrounds.Many of you will probably be reunited with old friends but alsomake new ones. We will work, but also have fun. We will learn,but also play. A mixture that for me makes EYP an addiction.I advise you - already now - to use all the possibilities EYP has to offeryou. Observe, learn from and adjust to what you see and experience.The success of the session lies within you and your willingness to havean open attitude. The further you go, the more you and others gain.I look forward to meeting all of you!Nedim Malovic
