The IHGR delegation representing Sweden at the 69th EYP International Session in Istanbul, Turkey.

EYP

The European Youth Parliament supports the development of young people into politically aware and responsible citizens by involving them in European political thinking and promoting intercultural understanding. With more than 500 events throughout Europe, the EYP engages 35,000 students every year. At IHGR, we are very proud to be part of this important organisation.

Since 2011, IHGR students have been contributing and participating in the EYP. By joining as delegates and officials, our students have attended sessions in places such as Turkey, Ireland, Belgium, Azerbaijan, Denmark and many more. Every year, as part of the introduction to high school, our first graders participate in our very own in-school session, led by older students.
For the school year 2015-16 the IHGR delegation was selected to represent Sweden at the International Session in Switzerland.
