The Embassy of Austria in Tbilisi, in cooperation with EuroClub Kvareli, organised an exhibition on Bertha Von Suttner at Ilia Chavchavadze State Museum in Kvareli. Bertha Von Suttner was an Austrian writer and a peace activist who was the first woman awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. She lived in Georgia and published several articles about the country.
The Exhibition was opened on 27 January by H.E. Mr. Thomas Mühlmann, the Ambassador of Austria to Georgia who highlighted the importance of her legacy for both Austria and Georgia and the cooperation among the countries. 5 YEAs attended the opening ceremony and discussed plans of YEAs initiative in Georgia with the Ambassador afterwards to get a feedback.
