“Young people in Moldova are an extremely inspiring example of how young people can change the future of their region. They have not only technological knowledge, but more importantly, enthusiasm and belief in their abilities and in their contribution to the future of the region,” said Joanna Bagadzinska, Young European Ambassador from Poland.

At Cahul University, named after Bogdan Petriceicu Hasdeu, the Young European Ambassadors met with students from Cahul and also schoolchildren from neighbouring localities. Participants visited EU-funded projects to learn more about EU assistance provided to Moldova, and interacted with media representatives.Young European Ambassadors is an apolitical and voluntary youth initiative that connects young people from Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Republic of Moldova, Ukraine and the European Union member states and the United Kingdom.
