Young European Ambassadors join discussion on addressing communication and education challenges of visually impaired persons

The FINANCIAL - On 24 October, three Young European Ambassadors (YEAs) from Georgia will attend a workshop on communication with visually impaired persons. The event will address the challenges people of this group face during education.

Workshop participants will also get familiar with several techniques and tools visually impaired people use. The meeting will take place in specialised public school #202 in Tbilisi.

The YEAs will also present the YEAs initiative to the non-YEA guests. Up to 40 people will participate in the workshop.

The Young European Ambassadors initiative aims to foster cooperation and sustainable links between young people and youth organisations from the EU and its Eastern partner countries: Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, the Republic of Moldova and Ukraine.

The YEAs are the driving force of the ‘Young European Neighbours’ network, an online platform facilitating the mutual exchange of ideas and information on the EU, as well as the engagement of young people in informative activities.

The network is focused on dialogue-driven activities that contribute to a greater awareness and improved perception of the EU, and the enhanced assessment of its relations with the Eastern Neighbourhood.
