The EYP Day was established in 2019 and takes place annually. It welcomed approximately 50 - 80 young people to a one day conference where they can discuss current issues. This event allows young people to join EYP's activities without having to attend as a school delegation. EYP Day 2021 will take place between the 3rd and 4th of April.

Team building in the context of the European Youth Parliament, means communication training, focused on group dynamics. The fundamental purpose of team building is to get a disparate group of individuals working as a team, through a series of physical, theoretical and problem-solving activities. Under the guidance of their committee Chairperson, the delegates will participate in a series of group dynamic exercises and problem-solving tasks, in order to get to know each other and begin functioning as a group.
This is the central part of any EYP session. After team-building, the delegates come together to discuss their allocated topics, and will explore the skills needed to discuss, debate and communicate effectively within their committee. The goal of Committee work is the production of a strong and meaningful resolution, that will be debated upon during the General Assembly.
The General Assembly reunites all the participants of the session to consider the results of committee work. Each committee presents and defends their motion for a resolution, which is then debated according to the current model of the European Parliament.
