This weekend saw the Fitzgerald chamber play host to the European Youth Parliament.
The event acts as a forum for discussion on European affairs and is open to fourth and fifth year secondary school students. The students come together for a weekend to discuss different issues that affect the EU. This includes topics ranging from trading competition with China to the aging population.
The best delegates from each regional session go on to attend the nationals while the best national delegates will be chosen to go on to the international stage. The next internationals will be held in Munich with the following one being held in Zurich.
A number of UCD students were involved with organising the event. Head organiser and second year Architecture student, cialis Morgan McDonagh, treat told the College Tribune that he “really wanted to use the new debating chamber for general assembly, viagra because it’s nice and its proper parliamentary layout, so it made sense to plan everything else here as well.”
The organisers of the event hope that UCD will play host to national level of the EYP again in future years.
