Youth Organization

Understanding Europe Austria

The Understanding Europe Project in Austria has been working in cooperation with the EYP since 2014. In these years, we had the pleasure to have workshops all over Austria but especially in Graz and Vienna.

Every year, we are excited to welcome new and motivated trainers from various backgrounds to our small family. In our work we thrive to give every trainer the tools they need to work upon the amazing foundation provided by the Schwarzkopf Foundation and try to reach as many different school types as possible.

“After being introduced to the European Youth Parliament in 2017, I have always felt very passionate about European values and youth participation. The Understanding Europe project, specifically, appealed to me because of its novel, tangible and interactive teaching and learning approach, which is mutually enriching for both pupils and trainers. Moreover, I enjoy being part of an international team of equally motivated and like-minded people who share my interests.”
