Voices of Tromsø
Join us on the official podcast of the 98th International Session of the European Youth Parliament (EYP), hosted in the breathtaking Arctic city of Tromsø in 2023!

With Sounds of Tromsø, you’ll embark on a journey of discovery, learning about the unique history, culture, and traditions of the Sámi people — the only indigenous culture of the EU — and their connection to the environment. Our podcast is a platform for conversation with experts, community leaders, and young activists, and we’ll delve into the pressing issues facing the Arctic and the world today.

From climate change and environmental conservation to indigenous rights, Sounds of Tromsø offers a rare opportunity to deepen your understanding of these critical topics, while exploring the beauty of the Arctic region and its people.

The project is brought to you by Pablo Ramirez (ES), Ela Bolčič (SI), João Silva (PT), Thetis Georgiou (CY) and Charlotte Vanhandenhove (BE).

Happiest moments
It isn't easy to talk about our happiest moments without awakening the feeling of warm, calming nostalgia. It is at times like these you get the desire to share this kindness, this gratitude with others.

Quick memories from Tromsø 2023
This project was born on the idea of making it possible to re-experience the unique Arctic journey that the Tromsø International Session gave its 300 participants, re-explore the city of Tromsø and re-exchange all the memories we got there.

We hope you will enjoy this tiny memorable video brought to you by Daniele Amici and explore the Artic region with us.

Feelings of Tromsø
"This project is my love letter to Tromsø. With it, I want to help you live or relieve the incredible experiences of the North and to make you fall in love with this magical town again and again…

Tromsø has been an incredible experience for all 300 of its participants. The reasons and ways to reminisce about those fantastic ten days can never be too much.

I hope that you will enjoy these articles even weather you have been part of Tromsø IS or have never set foot in this magical town".
Colors of the North
Colors of the North aims at showing how differently colors, landscapes and nature can be viewed depending on the individual interpretation.

Each of the paintings is unique when it comes to colors, its placement on the canvas and drawings. All of that were inspired by undiscovered beauty of the nature of the North, captured by session participants as well as outside photographers.

Break The Ice
The project "Break The Ice" is a short informative video about certain issues our participants wanted to "break the ice" about.

We connected the project from all three terms from the session theme: "Explore, Exchange, Experience - Sparking Young Curiosity" as our participants explored various issues that interested them, exchanged them with you, and now it's your time to experience them.

The issues presented might be hard-hitting, something not many people give enough awareness to, and what participants think needs to be talked about more.

The project is promoting the freedom of speech on EYP and cultural differences, but also to raise awareness about the issues which aren't widely talked about.

Ode to the Arctic
As Tromsø IS could have not happened elsewhere, same goes with this project.

With Ode to the Arctic, Jarna Pahlberg, Zain Mumtaz, and Maddalena Simondi, aimed to capture the unique atmosphere of the Arctic and exalt the intricate balance reigning there in such an extreme and fragile environment. The visuals follow the storyline paced by the poem written by Zain Mumtaz: each quadruplet of the poem is built on the different committee topics, and they are all deeply interconnected to the session's theme.

The soundtrack is a song composed and performed during Euroconcert by Iivari Mantere, one of the delegates of the session. He plays kantele, which is the national instrument of Finland, and whose sound lulled us in these nordic lands.Ode to the Arctic — a project by Jarna Pahlberg, Zain Mumtaz, Maddalena Simondi.
Session video
With “Explore, Exchange, and Experience” as the three main pillars of the EYP’s 98th International Session in Tromsø, with this video we want to showcase both the session and its participants, as well as Tromsø, the Arctic, and its culture. ❄️

Everyone who joined this arctic adventure had the chance to live the event’s main theme. #YoungEurope explored Tromsø, an unknown environment to most of them, and they exchanged and experienced completely new cultures, activities, feelings, and unique moments.

This video has been brought to you by the whole Media Team.
