Leipzig International School Youth Parliament
Leipzig International School Youth Parliament (LYP) takes place at school from Thursday, 19 April to Saturday, 21 April, and is open to all students from grades 6 to 9.
The Leipzig International School Youth Parliament’s format is based on the European Youth Parliament (EYP) and will be a unique opportunity for our secondary school students to voice their own opinions, debate current political topics and develop their public speaking skills.
LYP is led by two Grade 11 students who have attended four European Youth Parliament conferences already, and are experienced with the sessions’ format. Our students will participate in all components of an EYP session, including team building exercises, committee work on one of five current, EU-related topics, and a General Assembly, in which they have the chance to hold a speech at the podium. Parents are also welcome to visit the General Assembly on Saturday, 3rd March (see the schedule below for details).
Thursday, 19 April:
Saturday, 21 April:
10:00 - 16:00 General Assembly in the Aula and closing ceremony
Please note that this schedule may be subject to change, but all participants will be notified of any changes in advance.
