The EYCA Youth Panel meets in Prague

Last month, the EYCA Youth Panel met for the first time in Prague, Czechia. Having been selected in early 2023, this was a good moment for the new team to get to know each other and understand how to work collectively over the next two-year mandate. Find out more about the new members here.

In addition to the many memories created (especially around the notorious 16-person table football), the panellists got to know more about how EYCA works and what role the Youth Panel has with the association. The Youth Panel’s impact is ever-growing and evolving; but with so many EYCA members in 35+ different countries, navigating such a big association isn’t easy. This meeting was a good opportunity for each panellist to share their vision for the next two years, but also to understand the tools and resources available.

Also joining the group in Prague were the outgoing members of the 2021-2022 Youth Panel. With a focus on sharing feedback, outlining their best tips and explaining the thought process behind their proposed ideas, this handover was a good way to celebrate the end of their two-year-long engagement with EYCA and pass on the responsibilities to the new group. 

Here's hoping the connections and friendships created in Prague are long-lasting. Europe is not so big really, and meeting up again is almost a certainty.
