Young European Ambassadors a Napoli - L'Europa delle opportunità

Sabato 18 febbraio 2023 si è tenuto a Napoli il IX Ciclo Europe Cafè presso il Coworking Dialogue Place, in collaborazione con i Young European Ambassadors.

L'evento ha riunito 44 giovani locali tra i 18 e i 30 anni interessati a discutere vari argomenti legati all'Europa e al suo futuro. L'evento ha fornito una piattaforma per scambiare idee, creare contatti e conoscere le differenze tra i giovani che vivono nell'UE e quelli provenienti dal partenariato orientale, come Armenia e Bielorussia.


L'iniziativa dei Young European Ambassadors (YEAs) è una rete di comunicazione non politica, volontaria e vivace che connette e costruisce ponti di amicizia tra i giovani di Armenia, Azerbaigian, Bielorussia, Georgia, Repubblica di Moldova, Ucraina, gli Stati membri dell'UE e il Regno Unito.


L'obiettivo della rete è di sensibilizzare sull'accordo di cooperazione tra l'UE e i paesi partner dell'Est, mostrare i risultati tangibili di questa cooperazione, contribuire al dialogo politico su vari argomenti, aumentare l'attivismo civico e lavorare insieme per un futuro migliore. Gli studenti organizzano anche attività locali per sensibilizzare sul lavoro dell'UE nei paesi partner dell'Est e sull'importanza di tale cooperazione in termini di prosperità economica, sicurezza e sviluppo nella regione.

L'attività faceva parte del progetto "Europe Café", un progetto finanziato dal Corpo europeo di solidarietà volto a informare i giovani napoletani sulle opportunità offerte dall'Unione europea. L'attività organizzata dai YEAs si è svolta il 18 febbraio dalle 15:00 alle 19:00.


ENGLISH VERSION:


On Saturday 18th February 2023, the IX Cycle Europe Cafè Naples took place at the Coworking Dialogue Place, in collaboration with the Young European Ambassadors. This event brought together 42 young people aged 18-30 interested in discussing various topics related to Europe and its future. The event provided a platform for people to exchange ideas, network, and learn the difference between young people living in the EU and people coming from the eastern partnership, such as countries like Armenia and Belarus.


The Young European Ambassadors (YEAs) initiative is a non-political, voluntary, and vibrant communication network that connected and built bridges of friendship between young people from Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Republic of Moldova, Ukraine, and the EU member states and the United Kingdom.


The network's objective is to raise awareness of EU cooperation with Eastern partner countries, show the tangible results of this cooperation, contribute to policy dialogue on various topics, help increase civic activism, and work together for a better future. Young students also organize local activities to raise awareness of the EU's work in Eastern partner countries and why such cooperation is important in terms of economic prosperity, security, and development in the region.
