With a youth network the region is stronger

29 July 2013

Within the framework of the Youth Action for Regional Coherence and Cooperation (YARCC) a Regional Training Session for Trainers (TFT) on Shared Values in Armenia was organised in Yerevan on 6-7 July 2013.
The overall objective of the Youth Action is to contribute to regional partnerships and cooperation in order to create a common cultural environment where common values and the richness of Europe’s cultural diversity can be shared and valued.
The programme is set to enhance relations among young people from Armenia, Georgia, Bulgaria and Turkey, encourage them to share cultural values, and educate them on the core values of the EU. In Armenia the programme is being implemented by “Heifer Armenia”.
Before the training sessions, Anahit Ghazanchyan, Country Director of the Heifer Project International Armenian Branch Office, welcomed the participants. She stated that the project was aimed at forming a regional youth network: ‘With these bright and intelligent young people our region will have a very good future. With this project we are going beyond local borders to the regional level – at this level we will all share the rich experience and visions that our representative organisations have, and we will all learn from one another’.

During the TFT, trainers from the four partner countries were trained by recognised international trainer Dorsi Doi Germann of the International Institute of Management University, based in Flensburg, Germany. These trainers are now responsible for training youth in their own countries.

YARCC is co-financed by the European Union as part of the European Neighbourhood and Partnership Instrument with a budget of €208,104. It will involve over 2,300 youths from both urban and rural areas of the partner countries over a period of 12 months.
