What youth should learn about NATO values?


We would like to bring together the representatives of YATA from NATO and partner countries and discuss the issues of peace and security in our neighborhood addressing the key issues the youth can contribute for regional harmony, peace and cooperation. 

We would like to educate our youth the democratic principles, rule of law and pluralism and convey them that NATO is an organization which is interested in promoting transparency, accountability and peace in the Caucasus and is a protector of the human values, the European Institutions stand for. 

The young participants from NATO countries will speak about the NATO’s role in promoting democratic and liberal values in their own countries and interact with partner countries representatives about their countries experiences. 
The participants will also discuss the role of social media which can provide a platform for their activities, discuss the ideas emanating from NATO’s Chicago Summit including the youth role in promoting the liberal values among the society and youth.

Additionally the conference will allow the young YATA members to create the network for better cooperation and consequently for working out the ideas applicable to our region in an effort to establish the long time peace and security.
