EY Parliament's Statement on Brexit

Statement by the European Youth Parliament on the EU-referendum in the UK

The European Youth Parliament (EYP) is an independent, non-partisan educational programme which currently reaches young people in 40 European countries. We are not limited to the borders of the European Union, but rather strive for open discussion of pan-European political issues and intercultural exchange across the whole continent. Our mission is to inspire and empower young Europeans to become open-minded, tolerant and active citizens all over Europe. The result of the EU referendum in the UK does not change this: our mission remains the same. Whether yesterday’s results influence our work in the United Kingdom remains to be seen, but it is clear that we will continue our activities as before, in the UK and all over Europe.

The right to publish in the magazine belongs to everyone!

MAKE A STAND – LET’S BUILD OUR FUTURE TOGETHER!

M(A)Y publishes a variety of media contents – texts, caricatures, photos, video-clips – created by young people, youth workers, experts, and all others that wish and have something to say about youth policy.

Geographically, M(A)Y e-Magazine is primarily targeting European countries, but it also publishes important news and initiatives in the field of youth policy worldwide.

The e-Magazine gives special attention to youth media activism, wishing to present the examples of best practices of using different media for youth activism.

Besides authored articles, M(A)Y also gathers together relevant articles from other web-sites. M(A)Ye-Magazine is thus a virtual space where visitors are able to get information about the international situation and problems of youth policy, and the place where young authors are able to write articles and other content intended for improving the youth policy internationally. In this respect, it has vital importance for the intraregional and transregional association, understanding, coming together, promoting dialogue and cooperation.
This portal has been created as part of the international MEDIActive Youth project implemented within the Erasmus + Programme. The aims of the project are:
Increasing the capacity of youth organisations/workers in the field of media literacy and media activism as well as fostering their active participation in society
Fostering intraregional and transregional cooperation between 11 youth NGOs from 10 countries from Western Balkans, Western Europe and North Europe regions
Strengthening media promotion of youth policy and democratic values in partner countries on transregional and European level.
