Understanding Europe Armenia

Team Understanding Europe Armenia

Understanding Europe Armenia started in 2016 and since then the project has been uniting young people from different backgrounds around a single idea of sharing knowledge through reaching out to high school students from different regions of Armenia. We are interconnected to the European Youth Parliament Armenia and this connection has proven to be mutually beneficial. Through the past 4 years, dozens of events and activities have been implemented: Trainings for Trainers, Crash Courses, Outreach Weekends, and Regular Team Meetings.

“I have been part of Understanding Europe since 2017, and throughout this time the project not only gave me a chance to be more active in my community and in my country in general, but it also gave me a chance to learn more about the structure of EU, its history and gain an understanding of the most relevant political topics.”

Davit Manukyan

“I've been actively involved in youth work for years and Understanding Europe has an important part in it. It is very important for the Armenian youth to have better understanding about the European Union, considering the Comprehensive and Enhanced Partnership Agreement that was recently ratified between Armenia and the EU. Moreover, it is very useful for the Armenian youth to learn about the ways of making their voice heard, which the training is covering comprehensively.”

“Joining the Understanding Europe project for me was a crucial step towards shaping a more educated and more curious community. Young people get together to learn more about history, values and vision of the EU and their willingness to get more information triggers development and further intellectual curiosity. I hope that by joining the Understanding Europe project young people will feel empowered and will make new friends.”
