Call Booklet Vice - Presidents and Chairpersons
Dear all, It is with pleasure that I will be presiding the 12th National Selection Conference of EYP Albania: Tirana 2019. If you are reading this, there is a high chance you’re considering to apply as a member of the chairs team to join me in this project. Allow me then, to further elaborate on why you should. The theme of Tirana 2019 is “Young Energy” and it covers two very relevant topics which affect both our and future generations. On one hand we will discuss the current state of the energy sector in Europe and how it can be improved so as to safeguard our environment. On the other hand we will explore the impact that the energy of European youngsters can have in building a more sustainable and bright-looking future. With these two different aspects of our theme, Tirana 2019 aims to tackle on single key-concept: to build the future of younger generations. The vision for Tirana is to foster a session environment where any official feels comfortable, included and challenged and where all teams work collaboratively towards a common goal. We want this session to be a safe space for participants to attempt new feats, make mistakes and learn from the experience. Through simplifying academics and making them more accessible to everyone, we would like to give each member of the chairs team a chance to explore this side of EYP, as well as make this experience even more enticing for the delegates. Ultimately, our aim is to create a warm, inclusive, healthy and positive atmosphere with a focus on self-awareness and self-development. I’m looking forward to reading your application and, in case you have any question or comment, please do not hesitate to reach out to me!
