A milestone for EYP
Gathering around 250 participants from all over Europe, ANKARA’22 will be the largest in-person event held by the European Youth Parliament since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic and the 13th International Forum organised by EYP Turkey. As such, it is a milestone for the organisation and the beginning of a new, post-pandemic chapter for the EYP. ANKARA’22 will mark the EYP’s return from the digital to the physical sphere and set the new standard for in-person sessions in the future.
Seeking the Unknown
Fittingly, the theme of the session is “Seeking the Unknown”. Together, the participants will challenge themselves and others, grow, learn, and become more active citizens of Europe and the world. In their committees, the delegates will discuss the issues facing mankind in the years and decades to come and consolidate the opinions of the next generation of European leaders.
Surrounded by history
The session will take place in Ankara, Turkey’s vibrant capital. Situated in the center of the Anatolian peninsula, Ankara was founded over 2,000 years ago and has, in that timespan, been a center of several civilisations, including the Hittites, the Persians, the Romans, and the Ottomans. However, it only became the capital of the newly established Republic of Turkey in 1923. Consequently, Ankara is brimming with history, both ancient and modern, and will be an inspiring setting for delegates and officials.
