10 Years Is Just A Beginning: Impressions of a YEA after the EaP Launch Event

In an October morning of 2018, almost 500 young leaders around the EU and EaP countries got letters that they had been waiting for for so long - they officially became part of Class 2018-2019 of Young European Ambassadors. Their mission was indeed special, as they embarked on this very interesting ambassadorship journey at the dawn of celebrations of 10 years since the launch of Eastern Partnership at May 2009 Prague Summit. 100 of the Ambassadors were especially honored to be selected to participate at the EaP 10th Anniversary Launch Event, that took place in Brussels on February 14-15. The program was planned to be quite intense and captivating, and we as participants were happy to get on board with it and make the Event top notch thanks to our contributions.

Azerbaijan AZ – a YEA experience from A to Z

Exactly one year ago, as I was hastily filling in an application form before a looming deadline, my mind could barely have fathomed that I would set foot in Azerbaijan so soon...Becoming a Young European Ambassador and embracing with unbounded enthusiasm the idea of building bridges between youth from the European Union and our peers in the Eastern Partnership became not only a genuine pleasure, but also a lifelong goal. My next move was to advance fearlessly on the newly erected stepping stones of cooperation and to head towards the eternally fascinating lands on the shores of the Caspian Sea.
