From 8 to 17, March, student Z. - M. Kamopoulou (11th Grade) took part in the 89th International Session of the European Youth Parliament in Yerevan, Armenia, along with almost 350 students from 40 different countries. The student participated in the meeting after having been selected in the 38th National Selection Conference of EYP Greece, which took place in Thessaloniki in December 2018.
The young people who participated in the session were invited to discuss and find solutions to key issues of concern to European countries and the international community, including the regulation of shared economy, the limits of fake news and political propaganda, enhancing cybersecurity and moving towards sustainable development.
Despite the academic nature of the meeting, particular emphasis was placed on the cultural interaction of the countries through activities such as EuroConcert and EuroVillage, where students displayed artistic performances and dishes form their traditional cuisines respectively. During the Armenian cultural evening and the visit to the History and Holocaust Museums, they also had the opportunity to get to know Armenia and Yerevan, one of the oldest and most populated cities in the world, which has recently celebrated its 2,800 years since its establishment.
