The Conference

In addition to the EYP’s overarching goals, Rotterdam 2018 distinguishes itself through giving additionnal attention to inclusion and approachability, and “Discovering Global Europe”.

Despite the accommodation, food, drinks and other costs being covered by the organisation of Rotterdam 2018, there exists a financial barrier to participate in the session in the form of a participation fee and travel costs. This barrier can prevent people from taking part, thereby potentially excluding them from an exceptional experience. To promote the diversity in backgrounds in participants, we strive to keep participation fees low, and to (partially) reimburse travel costs of participants who need this help.

Furthermore, the EYP has a cooperation with the UNHCR, as part of which 4 refugee will take part in the session. We are also working together with youth organisations in Rotterdam, to ensure that local youth can also profit from the event.
