Young European Ambassadors platform

What is the YEA network?

The Young European Ambassadors (YEA) platform is a creative network of future young activists from across the Western Balkans (Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo, Montenegro, North Macedonia, and Serbia).

YEAs come from different backgrounds, yet they all share a common vision: the Western Balkans united in diversity, learning about each other and EU together, promoting activism within their local communities, pursuing creative projects, acquiring new skills, connecting via social media, organising inspiring events – always driven by the idea that activism in youth is the most powerful force of social change.

The YEAs network is a non-political, activist initiative established in 2020 as part of the EU Regional Communication Programme for the Western Balkans – The 120 YEAs were selected in 2020 and 2021 and you can meet all of them here: Meet the YEAs

Now already known among youth all over the region as ‘YEAs’, these young game-changers are also here to tell their peers more about the opportunities that the EU offers – for education, skills development, travel, advocacy and much more.

Most importantly, YEAs are open to sharing ideas and developing their talents – towards inspiring change within their communities, the Western Balkans, across the EU and beyond.

The aim of the network is to share EU values and to raise awareness about the EU’s cooperation with its Western Balkan partners, showcase the tangible results of this cooperation, contribute to policy dialogue on various topics, help increase civic activism and work together for a better future.

As a YEA – you are here to create the best version of yourself and show it to the world.
