About the Session
The Italian committee was selected to host the
92nd International Session (IS) of the European Youth Parliament. After more than fifteen years since the last event of this scale, Milan was chosen to be the meeting point for more than 300 young brilliant minds from all over Europe. This session results as the culmination of a whole year of selections carried out in 40 countries, first at a regional followed by national level. From Cyprus to Iceland, from Portugal to Russia, Milan will stand as a crossroads of cultures, experiences and ideas for a confrontation of mutual listening, ideological exchange and close collaboration. Ten days, a youth network and a common mission: to engage in redefining the world of today with the ultimate goal
of shaping a better tomorrow.

The 92nd International Session aims at fostering in-depth discussions on the omni comprehensive concept of sustainability, proposing itself as an open youth platform to share ideas, thoughts and best practices for a sustainable future through the activation of an international network.
More than 300 young people from all over Europe will have the opportunity to confront themselves first hand with the urgent challenge of sustainability intended in its most global meaning. The issues dealt with will touch more areas of interest, from its more tangible economic implications all the way to its social and environmental connection. The aforementioned topics appear to be closely intertwined, thus requiring a deep and joint analysis that leads to a definition of progress and innovation aimed towards a sustainable society. Participants will work together to develop a long-term vision for sustainability in which economic growth, social cohesion and environmental protection go hand in hand and are mutually reinforcing.
Circular economy, renewable energy sources, green tourism, new urban governance, food security, fair access to energy and respect for human rights and capital: these are among the many topics in the foreground.
The event presents itself as an investment in youth and education, making awareness, information, ethical sensitivity, respect for plural diversity and international cooperation the fundamental ingredients to face the challenges profiled by an increasingly globalized and globalizing world.
Through a joint effort of active and informed participation, the delegates will be protagonists in defining possible measures for the implementation of a sustainable development as a necessity of today and a guarantee for the future.
