Let’s have our first EYP throwback to 9th National Selection Conference, which was held in one of the oldest and prettiest cities of Georgia, Kutaisi, in August of 2015. The session was a part of the project BASES: Building A Strong European Society of the International Office in cooperation with the German Federal Foreign Office. BASES aimed at enhancing dialogue and mutual understanding as well as broadening the cooperation among civil society in the countries of the Eastern Partnership.
There were number of sessions, training and other events organised within the project by different National Committees of the EaP countries. EYP Georgia is thankful to BASES for the opportunities it gave to Georgian youngsters both on national and international scales.

For those, who are actively involved in European Youth Parliament, congratulations! as we are celebrating 30th anniversary of our beloved organisation. International office of EYP is celebrating this event with recollecting the memories of one of the first members through hashtags EYPthrowback as well as showing the impact EYP had on its participants through EYPimpact.
Tbilisi 2017 is joining the celebration and we are proud to introduce you an experienced alumnus Giorgi Tabagari, who became one of the first members of EYP Georgia and was representing our National Committee when Georgian National Committee got recognised during the General Assembly of the 57th International Session of EYP in Prague in 2008.
We asked Giorgi to share his experience and show the impact EYP had on his personal growth and career.
“It’s rather hard to squeeze almost 10 years, dozens of sessions and tons of memories in few sentences. Basically, EYP built me up as a person. Determined my professional interests and to a large degree, formed my social circle. First and foremost, EYP boosted my European identity, broadened my horizons and thanks to this experience, I am way more international today. EYP gave me a huge opportunity in life and I’m happy I embraced it to the fullest. For that, I will be eternally grateful for the organisation. “
