Young European Ambassadors celebrate first birthday

This month the Young European Ambassadors (YEA) network celebrates its first birthday. During their first year, the YEAs have initiated and participated in events and activities such as webinars, youth activism campaigns, and the EXIT and Balkan Trafik festivals. They have used these activities to promote issues including media literacy, gender equality, youth empowerment, and environment protection. To mark the first anniversary, the Young European Ambassadors have produced a short video that covers the main activities of their one-year journey.


The YEA network launched in August 2020 with 60 change-makers from Albania, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Kosovo, Montenegro, North Macedonia, and Serbia. The network promotes diversity while sharing a common vision: learning about one another and the European Union, pursuing creative projects, acquiring new skills, organising inspiring events – always guided by the idea that youth activism is the most powerful tool for social change.


The YEAs are now a well-known network, sharing information with their peers about opportunities offered by the EU – from education and skills development, to travel, advocacy, and much more. This next generation of young leaders isinspiring change within their communities and across the Western Balkan region and the EU.
