The ‘Young European Ambassadors’ (YEAs) is an initiative launched within the framework of the EU OPEN Neighbourhood Programme (EU Neighbours East). It will take place in the six countries of the EU Eastern Partnership (EaP) from September 2016 onward. The YEA network will connect at least 100 young people from all over Europe!

They will be guided and supported by two Network Coordinators who will regularly travel in Europe. Easy communication platforms will be put in place to facilitate exchanges, regular Young European Ambassadors missions will be prepared, contests will be organised, and more! English will be the main language of use for the YEAs, but knowledge of local languages will be an asset.

It takes place in the framework of the EU-funded OPEN Neighbourhood “Communicating for a Stronger Partnership: Connecting with citizens across the Eastern Neighbourhood” (EU Neighbours East) Project, which is implemented by an Ecorys-led consortium. The ‘Young European Ambassadors’ initiative is at its early stage. Further communication will follow on its organisation, the selection of participants and the conduct of activities and events. The EU OPEN Neighbourhood programme reserves the right to select participants and offer them the opportunity to participate in activities and events, which it cannot guarantee.

  • You must be a citizen of one of the EU Member States or one of the six EaP countries (Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine);
