Organisers Kortrijk 2022 - 97th International Session of the European Youth Parliament
1 European Youth Parliament
Kortrijk 2022 is the 97th International Session of the European Youth Parliament. This session will gather around 300 participants from all over Europe in autumn 2022 in Kortrijk, Belgium. We are looking for ± 15 Organisers. The call is open both for Belgian and International organisers. We are encouraging every interested individual to send in an application.
VISION “In a different light” This reflects our commitment towards innovation in all areas of the event. By deliberately rethinking common practices while maintaining the organisation’s integrity, we hope to take a step towards a bright future together. In order to do this, we will leave assumptions behind and make all our decisions from the ground up, starting with ‘why’. Our aim is to set the first steps into uncharted waters and with that find unexplored routes within our society.
Organising Team structure Kortrijk 2022 will opt to work with a circular team structure consisting of five departments, with each their own respective field and responsibilities as can be seen on the picture below. With this structure, big tasks can be decentralised into multiple departments when necessary to decrease the high workload and stress. Within these departments there will not be a designated core-organiser, everyone will be equally responsible for the workload and should be aware of everything that is going on in their respective departments. However, a Head of department will be nominated by each department on a three-month basis to ensure communication with the head-organisers.
Organisers will also be given the opportunity to switch departments during certain key points if they would like to and are free to give their input on the current structure as we are always open to improve where we can.
