Youth Organization

Understanding Europe Ireland

Understanding Europe Ireland has been established in 2021 and is run by members of the European Youth Parliament Ireland. The project aims to teach young people across the Island about how the EU works and how they can use it to their advantage in their everyday lives.

We focus on peer-to-peer education for young people that is curated by young people. We want to facilitate discussions and aim to give young people a space to discuss important topics. We promote understanding of democracy, impartial political participation and political education of young people. Courses and workshops should be taking place from early 2022.
