On the first day of the session all participants gather at the team building venue and are split up into 15 committees of about 15 people. They have never met each other and all have a different background. However, at the end of the session, they have to be able to work together as an effective team. The preparation of this challenge is the central theme of the days of team building, which lasts two full days. Guided by their chairperson – an experienced member of the European Youth Parliament – the delegates engage in a wide range of activities in order to form a better team. Some activities are creative, others are aimed at solving different types of problems, and all of them are aimed at creating a cohesive team. At the end of team building, a committee should be ready for a productive discussion during Committee Work and General Assembly.
