After a two-year break, 18 young and talented Azerbaijanis are taking part in the fifth edition of the EuroSchool Azerbaijan. From August 2 to 4, the youngsters learned more about the European Union, its institutions, the EU-Azerbaijan partnership, as well as the EU-funded opportunities in the country.
The event included sessions on the EU, its fundamental principles and values, decision-making in the EU, the Eastern Partnership, disinformation, and EU-Azerbaijan relations. The EuroSchool also provided the opportunity for a direct dialogue with EU YEAs and YEA trainers around issues relevant to young people (e.g. what it means to live in the EU, what it means to be a young European, the EU and its role for youth in Europe and in the EaP countries, opportunities for young people across the region including Erasmus+, and how to get involved)
The graduates of the course will be invited to become members of the ‘Young European Neighbours’ network and to join the ‘Young European Ambassadors’ initiative through further future engagement with the YEAs in Azerbaijan.
