What is Model European Parliament (MEP)?
Model European Parliament is an opportunity for young people to participate in a simulation of the European Parliament. As the representative of MEP Europe in Malta, Aġenzija Żgħażagħ organises national selections to choose the best delegates to represent Malta for upcoming international MEP sessions which are held twice a year in different European countries. National selections include training and information workshops following by a simulated European Parliament session which discusses and debates topics of current interest of controversy. Those young people deemed the best contributors in debates have the opportunity to take part as Maltese delegates to the following international MEP session.
Who is it for?
MEP is for young people aged from 16 to 19, who are interested in politics and wish to develop their skills in public speaking and political debate.
What will it do for me?
For the chosen delegates, Aġenzija Żgħażagħ provides further training and travel costs for an international MEP session. Maltese delegates who excel during international MEP sessions also have the possibility of returning to the next MEP session as Committee Presidents.
