Regional Selection Conferences
Regional Selection Conferences are three-day sessions, being one of Teambuilding, one of Committee Work and one of the General Assembly. Usually, it is the first contact with EYP a person has, and you can apply as an individual Delegate, or through your school, if you speak to your teachers and apply as a Delegation, going with a group of other students.
National Selection Conferences
The National Selection Conference is usually the flagship event of EYP Portugal. Its format is quite similar to a Regional Session, with the differences being that the National Session lasts four days for Delegates and five for Officials, having two days of Committee Work.
Overall, it is a bigger session, and the entirety of the delegates present (for the exception of International Delegates) must be selected from a Regional Selection Conference, with the opportunity of further being selected to an even bigger event, such as an International Session.
International Sessions are the flagship events of the EYP, being Organised with the overhead EYP organisation. The EYP organises three International Sessions every year. Each of them brings together about 300 young people for 9 days from around 40 European countries. This is the biggest session you can attend within the network, and you can be selected to go either by your National Committee (in this case, EYP Portugal), or from a National Selection Conference.
