Vision for the Academic Team || 45th NSC

Dear future applicant, 

First of all, let us thank you for your interest in joining us in the adventure that αθenς 2023 will be. The 45th NSC of EYP Greece will be an opportunity for all of us to grow and step out of the typical boxes EYP sometimes may put us in, and we are more than excited to have 17 enthusiastic individuals join us in this journey. 

Below, you can find our collective vision for the Academic Team of the 45th National Selection Conference of EYP Greece. We invite you to read it carefully and think of how your vision for your personal development within and outside of EYP is reflected in it. 


Vision for the Academic Team 


As a board, we envision that our team will be governed with the values of trust and mutual learning. We aspire to enable everyone in our team to learn from themselves and from each other, with the Session Board acting as a support system for the team, every step of the way. Transparency, clear communication and approachability will be a core principle we aim to hone across all members of our team, in order to make this experience nothing but a beneficial one and allow for us all to build a welcoming and enriching environment for every single member of our team, that allows for self-development and self-guided learning with unlimited support and guidance from every member of the team and the Academic Board to one another. 


Most importantly, we  aspire to build a team that doubles as a space of belonging: a space where all chairs feel supported, safe and appreciated, and great value will be given to processes that allow their genuine, human connections to flourish.  


Vision for the Academic Output 


The theme of the session, "Wind of Change – Youth Initiatives in Environmental Consciousness: Empowering the active participation of the youth in environmental policy" finds us at the crossroads of decision-making: the current geopolitical and socioeconomic framework conditions are constantly pushing civic society and policymakers to rethink their positioning in advancing EU values and principles. Most importantly, we, the youth, are now required to stand up and step up our involvement more than ever, to secure that modern policy reflects our values, opinions and experiences.  


With such a backdrop, we envision that the Session’s output will empower delegates and chairs to engage with topics at the forefront of political developments across Europe. Our aim is to ensure that every topic will be pertinent to real-world issues, without shying away from touching on unexplored territories. At the same time, we envision a session where participants do not only focus on their own Committee Topic, but also benefit from the broad palette of challenging issues we dare to discuss - through exploring a new Committee Work structure, as well as other elements that allow delegates to interact with other topics and committees as much as possible, giving them an opportunity to engage with topics from across different policy areas. As such, the Academic Team will be called to not fear innovation, and to re-examine how academic research is conducted, how Topic Overviews can deliver to all types of learning, and how each element of the session will serve our common vision towards making our session participants tomorrow’s active citizens. 


Vision for the Chairpersons 


Taking all the aforementioned into account, we envision that this team will be like no other. We are looking for Chairpersons that are ready to challenge what they know, and can deeply reflect on how EYP matters for them, and on why this particular session can be a stepping stone towards their personal development. We want to build a team that will be actively engaged in every step of the process up until the session takes place, where your values, motivation, interests and lived experiences matter towards shaping what αθenς 2023 will be. 


As a Chairperson in Athens 2023, you will be invited to critically think about every element of the session, and why we do the things we do. You will be required to explore your personal leadership style, your academic preferences, strengths and weaknesses, and reflect on your contribution to the personal development of those around you. Experience from different paths of life will be embraced across session elements, and different learning styles, independence and ownership will be our guiding principles.  In turn, what we ask of you is preparedness to commit to αθenς 2023, to explore what you aspire to learn from it, and what you are willing to contribute. Most importantly, we ask that you allow yourself to rethink how you want to experience EYP, and to show your enthusiasm towards making this session special for all its participants.


We ask that  you join us with an open mind and an open heart, and readiness to truly experience everything that αθenς 2023 has to offer: an environment to learn, empower and be empowered. 


Thank you for the time you put into reading our vision for αθenς 2023. Should you have any questions about the session or our vision for the academic team, please do not hesitate to reach out to any of us. We will be more than happy to hear from you! 


We look forward to reading your applications. 


Warm wishes, 


Mimi, Mihaela, Afroditi and Maria 


Vice-Presidents and President of αθenς 2023 - 45th National Session of EYP Greece
