STUDY SESSIONS

For many years FEMYSO have been organising Study Sessions bringing together young participants from Europe with different social and cultural backgrounds.  

What is a “Study Session”? 

Study sessions are usually delivered as a co-operation between FEMYSO and the Council of Europe’s Youth Department. They are an international educational youth seminar, lasting anything between four to eight days, which bring together members of our youth organisations and experts for discussions on a specific subject. They are hosted by one of the European Youth Centres in Strasbourg or Budapest. 

Below you can find the links with more details on our recent Study sessions. 

While further below you can find a list of our upcoming study session and previous one
