On 25-27 April, 19 Ukrainian YEAs participated in the European Forum of Young Leaders in Katowice, Poland. The Forum aimed to provide a space for young activists from the European Union, the Eastern partner countries and the Western Balkans to share their experiences, engage in networking, and discuss issues of importance to young people across Europe, in particular, the challenges for Europe created by Russia’s aggression against Ukraine and its consequences. The YEAs joined the Forum to raise awareness about the ‘EU NEIGHBOURS east’ programme, the ‘Young European Ambassadors’ initiative and the war in Ukraine and its consequences for Europe.
