The YPAC was founded by Akademisches Gymnasium Innsbruck and the Alpine Convention. It brings together young people from different regions to discuss current topics regarding the Alpine region in a parliamentary simulation. It aims at giving insights into parliamentary structures as well as current topics which are of concern to the Alpine region. Moreover, it is a platform for a cultural exchange and networking among young people.
The YPAC takes place once a year. Every year, it is hosted by a different school. The last parliaments took place in Innsbruck (2006/2007), Maribor (2008), Meran (2009), Rosenheim (2010), Herisau/Trogen (2011), Liechtenstein (2012) and Sonthofen (2013). The YPAC 2014 took place in Chamonix (France).
This year’s edition was hosted by Liceo G. B. Brocchi in Bassano del Grappa, Italy from the 9th to the 13th of May.
