Strengthening Cooperation and Mutual Understanding between Czechia and the Eastern Partnership: Youth Engagement in Civic and Political Affairs
The European Values Center for Security Policy has launched a new educational project aimed at young people under the age of 30 from the Czech Republic, Ukraine, Georgia, and Moldova.
The aim of the project is to deepen participants’ knowledge of the relationship between the European Union and the Eastern Partnership countries, increase their awareness of security policy, and improve their soft skills. An important part of the project is to strengthen links between young people from the Czech Republic and Eastern Partnership countries through physical and online meetings.
The project consists of four in-person seminars––in Chisinau, Kiev, Prague, and Tbilisi. Four online meetings will also be held.
The preliminary dates of the seminars are as follows:
November 30–December 3, 2022;
February 15–18, 2023;
March 29–April 1, 2023; and
May 31–June 3, 2023.
The dates and locations of the seminars may be changed by agreement between the partner organizations for safety, epidemiological, or other reasons.
Thanks to Erasmus+ support, participation in the whole project is free of charge, including the costs associated with the in-person seminars.
