On 9 November, 44 out of the 68 newly selected Young European Ambassadors (YEAs) from Georgia will meet in Tbilisi the Head of the EU Delegation to the country, Ambassador Carl Hartzell. The YEAs will present past activities implemented within the YEAs initiative, discuss ways to empower Georgian youth and initiate plans for future activities.

The existing YEAs, who have actively participated in various events in Georgia and abroad, will share their volunteering experience. They will be granted certificates in recognition of their active roles.

Between 12 and 16 November, Georgian YEAs will visit Young Farmers’ Centres (YFCs) in the country’s Tetritskaro municipality to raise awareness about the EU, the Young European Neighbours network and the YEAs initiative.

The Young European Ambassadors initiative aims to foster cooperation and sustainable links between young people and youth organisations from the EU and its Eastern Partner countries: Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, the Republic of Moldova and Ukraine.

The YEAs are part of the Young European Neighbours network, an online platform that facilitates the mutual exchange of ideas and information on the EU, as well as the engagement of young people in informative activities. It is focused on people-to-people contacts and dialogue-driven activities that contribute to greater awareness and improved perception of the EU and the enhanced assessment of its relations with the Eastern Neighbourhood.

The event will take place on 9 November 2018 from 12:00 until 17:00 at Costé Hotel, 43-45 Merab Kostava St., Tbilisi. Registration for media representatives and participants will start at 12:00 until 12:30.
