Young European Ambassadors in Georgia visited the city of Batumi during 10-12 of July, 2019. The purpose of the YEAs mission was to meet local youth, carry out two activities and attend a high-level conference “Georgia’s European Way”. 13 YEAs actively engaged in organising and participating in activities to discover – as a local Young European Ambassador called – “My European Batumi”.
During the first day of the mission YEAs organised two activities. One group decorated a stand at Europe Square and engaged with local visitors to inform them about the European Union, its history and values, the EaP initiative and upcoming high-level conference. YEAs shared the information about Erasmus+ and many more #EU4Youth opportunities through interactive activities and quizzes. Up to 150 young visitors played the quiz and many more got leaflets or asked questions.
Young European Ambassadors continued their mission in Batumi by attending the high-level conference “Georgia’s European Way”. They had a chance to meet Donald Tusk, the President of the European Council and Carl Hartzell, the Ambassador of the European Union to Georgia on occasion to take a family photo.
