national youth parliament
The National Youth Parliament is an annual event by KNŻ and has been organised for the past 18 years. It falls under the direct responsibility of our National Office, which is responsible of organising this annual event. The NYP gives the opportunity to youths aged between 13 – 35 to join themed ‘parties’ and draft their resolution, this will culminate in a session in parliament in which the motion is presented, debated and voted upon.
Later on the resolutions are presented to the Prime Minister, the Opposition Leader, the President and other relevant stakeholders, on separate specifically organised events. Prior to the actual debate session in parliament, various workshops are prepared by KNŻ to help our participants develop further their skills and to help them enjoy the whole process as much as possible. NYP has given experience, offered many opportunities and has also exposed youth to the council’s work and activism.

The National Youth Parliament subcommittee is made of seven individuals who are responsible for revising resolutions and seeing the proposals done. The work of this subcommittee will then be presented in a document compiling the results and ways on how proposals may be implemented.
