15 young people from three regions of Armenia took part in an EU-supported study tour to Georgia, organized by CENN and Green Lane. The goal of the study visit was to share experiences between Armenian and Georgian youth in the direction of social and green entrepreneurship and to plan synergistic campaigns.
During the five-day visit, participants from Lori, Tavush and Shirak regions visited social enterprises established within the “EU4Youth: Social Entrepreneurship Ecosystem Development (SEED)” project in the municipalities of Gori, Ninotsminda, and Akhmeta. The newcomers exchanged information about the challenges and opportunities of the entrepreneurial environment in Armenia and held discussions on the steps forward in this direction in each country.
As part of the tour, young people living in Armenia got to know the leaders of the local innovative knowledge hubs in Georgia and together with them planned new, regional campaigns, which they will implement in the near future, thus further strengthening the connection between Armenia and Georgia.
The EU-funded regional project “EU4Youth: Social Entrepreneurship Ecosystem Development (SEED) for Green Growth” is implemented by CENN in partnership with KRDF in Georgia and Green Lane NGO in Armenia. The project empowers disadvantaged youth in Georgia and Armenia to successfully transition from education to work through developing their Social Entrepreneurship and Green Innovation skills.
