YPFP Brussels officially became a member of YPFP's global branch in 2008 with a small team of engaged young people. 10 years later, we now boast around 400 members, with a team of more than 20 volunteers organising over 50 events per year.

We host a large range of activities, workshops and social gatherings which aim to foster the next generation of foreign policy leaders. We have hosted many speakers and distinguished guests sharing their views on topics that reflect the wide interests of young professionals in Brussels. Some of the highlights of our activities since the branch launched include discussions with Ambassadors from Canada, Australia, Qatar, Israel and Turkey, events with NATO, the US Embassy to the EU, members of the European Parliament and the Benelux Union, as well as several workshops and roundtables on topics such as migration, terrorism and Brexit. A full overview of our past and upcoming events can be found on our blog.

The branch leadership consists of our Executive Director, Managing Director and the four Directors of our volunteer teams (Communications, Membership, Programming, and Security and Defence), all of whom work to ensure that we provide a challenging, high-quality programme of events for our members. You can find a list of our staff volunteers and team email addresses here

YPFP welcomes enquiries about potential events, speakers and activities, as well as more general questions about membership or media. To contact the leadership team, please email brussels@ypfp.org.

Keep up-to-date with our branch on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn.
