What is the Model European Parliament?

Model European Parliament is a conference for the European Union's youth, with a tradition all over the continent dating back 25 years. The delegates at the conference convene in different committees, where they discuss the problems EU is facing and try to find solutions. Delegates work on their English, presentation and diplomacy skills. They get to know engaged peers, as well as seasoned politicians on the national or European level. Civic engagement in public affairs is stressed throughout the conferences, as well as the idea of awareness of current affairs. The first national round of MEP took place in Bratislava in June 2017. 80 participants from Slovakia and abroad attended and worked in 5 different committees.
