December 30, 2019

Youth sector stakeholders from Georgia travelled to Armenia for an exchange visit organised by the EU4Youth programme on 17-18 December, with the support of the Save the Children International Representative Offices in the two countries.

Participants met with representatives of Armenia’s Ministry of Education, Science, Culture and Sports, the State Employment Agency, the National Institute of Labour and Social Research, as well as with a number of youth-related NGOs. 

Delegations from the two countries exchanged best practices and lessons learnt in youth policy development, youth employment programmes, youth development and empowerment, and cooperation between state and public sectors.

“These kind of study visits that aim to transfer knowledge and experience are a very good way to get new information and practical examples from other countries,” noted Kristina Kapanadze, Deputy head of the Youth Agency of Georgia.

The exchange visit was organised in the framework of the ‘EU4Youth: Better Skills for Better Future’ regional project, implemented with funding from the European Union in three countries: Armenia, Georgia and Ukraine. In Armenia, the project is implemented by Save the Children International Armenian Representative Office in cooperation with OxYGen Foundation for Protection of Youth and Women Rights. The implementing partner of Save the Children Georgia is LEPL Youth Agency.
