Sixty-eight young Georgians were selected this year to take part in the third round of the Young European Ambassadors initiative.

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

Young European Ambassadors, who have actively participated in various events, share their volunteering experience and receive certificates in recognition of their active role.

Newly selected Young European Ambassadors (YEAs) met H.E. Carl Hartzell, Head of the Delegation of the European Union to Georgia, at an official meeting in Tbilisi on November 9.

During the meeting with the Head of the EU Delegation Carl Hartzell, Young European Ambassadors will present their previous activities, discuss the ways of empowering youth and initiate plans of future activities.

We, from the Delegation of the European Union to Georgia are fully committed to step up efforts in the area of communication, and you the YEAs have the advantage to speak to your compatriots as one of them. You can bring the message to the people and showcase what the European Union is doing in Georgia. I am very much committed to support and participate in as many activities as possible," said Ambassador Carl Hartzell.
