Sixth edition of EuroSchool took place in Azerbaijan

The sixth edition of EuroSchool for young people aged 18-25, organised by the EU Delegation to Azerbaijan, with the participation of the Young European Ambassadors (YEAs), took place in Shabran, Azerbaijan, from 8 to 10 August.

The school sessions focused on the EU, its history and institutions, fundamental principles and values, the process of alignment and harmonisation of legislation, EU decision-making, the European Neighbourhood Policy, the Eastern Partnership initiative, disinformation, and EU-Azerbaijan relations.

Peter Michalko, the EU Ambassador to Azerbaijan said that EuroSchool is a great opportunity that allows young people to enhance their understanding of the European Union, its values, and how it functions and partners with Azerbaijan. 

“I believe that by organising these kinds of events that bring together young people from Azerbaijan and from the EU Member States, we are contributing to the development of our strong relations in so many areas now and in the future,” said the Ambassador. “The EU in Azerbaijan will continue to support and inspire young people in pursuing their ambitions, education opportunities and professional development, for the benefit of the people of Azerbaijan and the EU-Azerbaijan cooperation.”

Participants had the opportunity to discuss issues relevant to young people with the European YEAs and YEA trainers, including the EU’s role for youth and in the EaP countries as well as opportunities for young people across the region (including Erasmus+).

The graduates of the course were awarded with certificates of participation, were invited to become members of the ‘Young European Ambassadors’ (YEAs) network and take part in the initiative’s activities.
