LDA Georgia, Strasbourg and Kutaisi join forces for their young citizens

The Local Democracy Agency (LDA) Georgia is implementing the “Youth for Europe” project, in partnership with the cities of Strasbourg (France) and Kutaisi (Georgia).

Following trainings on European history and EU bodies, selected Georgian participants took part in a study visit in Strasbourg in December 2016, to learn about European values and institutions. They visited the European Parliament, the Council of Europe, and the European Youth Center. During the meetings, they received information about how the institutions work.

The Deputy Permanent Representative of Georgia to the Council of Europe, Mariam Maisaia, presented the 2015-2019 Action Plan, and discussed the most important Human Rights protection projects. At the European Youth Center, participants learned about international youth programs. The Youth for Europe members introduced their project, and discussed possible future cooperation.

Participants also met representatives of French NGOs and Strasbourg’s Deputy Mayor Nawel Rafik-Elmrini, to discuss European values. 

"Strasbourg has always supported the LDA Georgia, together with its host city, Kutaisi” said Nino Khukhua, Delegate of the LDA Georgia. “The visit was extremely interesting for young participants, who will further spread among their friends and families the take-home messages learnt in the heart of Europe”, she concluded.
