Slovak Atlantic Commission (SAC), with the support of the SlovakAid, are launching a new project “Georgia on EUropean Way”. The project will be implemented in the period of March 2016 – March 2017 and will have multiple dimensions involving the government as well as the civic sector. The project aims to support Georgia’s European integration process through  awareness campaigns and capacity building activities.

The project will contribute to raising public awareness about the EU-related issues in regions of Georgia and combating the existing misunderstandings about the EU by organising informal public discussions – so called “European Cafés”. The aim of these public discussions will be to increase the awareness of citizens of Georgia about benefits and opportunities stemming from the implementation of the Association Agreement with the EU as well as the Deep and Comprehensive Free Trade Agreement (DCFTA) between Georgia and the EU.

Young people will also be actively involved in the project, as university students will have a chance to deepen their current knowledge about the EU through training and to make follow-up presentations in their respective regions as part of the “Young EU Ambassadors” programme.

Within this project SAC offers its own experience and will be a partner of the international conference entitled “Georgia’s European Way” in July 2016.
