Issue 2 - 3
The opening ceremony generally consists of introducting the board to the
delegates and announcing the expectations for the session. The separate
speeches from the president and vice-presidents to wish the best EYP experi-
ence and success in committee work.
This opening ceremony has not been an exception as well. The president of
the NSC 2010 Teo lavrelashvili has held a splendid speech quoting the US
president John Kennedy and famous british explorer George mallory. We choose EYP because It’s here and we are here, and
generally our choice is EYP, that means: practice of English, break stereotypes, holding speeches, becoming a future leader, com-
municating, make new international friends and being successful both in life and the future profession. The vice – presidents have
as well wished a joyful session to the delegates and success in making resolu-
The special guest of the session was introduced as well: TSU English lecturer
Dimitri Dolaberidze. He told us about the importance of the EYP to the youth,
that it is a way towards success for them. With EYP we can prove that we are the
unity, educated generation who is able to make changes only to better. The EYP
gives us a chance to be the number one, and we have to use it, acquire the skill of cooperation and become more conscious about
the current world problems.
The opening ceremony has ended with national anthem and The anthem of the EU. Apart from that the power point slide show
has been shown to introduce the new commer delegates what the EYP means, its benefits and purposes. The delegates have been
shown both international sessions and regionl sessions, abroad and Georgia as well. As a result the delegates have become more
motivated they are willing to become the member of the huge EYP family.
So EYP-ers this session is your chance, try to make the best of it.

Form a Circle! Form, Form a Circle!
Brought by Tatuli and Maia
The 4th National Selection Conference of EYP
Georgia has finally commenced. The starting point
was old Tbilisi where participants from different
faculties and Universities came together to get to
know each other, by the help of the most exciting
part of EYP session – the TEAM BUILDING.As
soon as the circle was formed Team building was set
in motion in the Botanical Garden of Tbilisi. 8 committees and
approximately 80 delegates attended the starting part of the 4th National
Selection Conference of EYP Georgia.
Though weather was not so impressive the outcome of the team building process was not really
affected. Rainy weather seemed to be the KILLER of EYP spirit in the
beginning but fairly enough trees of Botanical Garden saved the mood
and the games we all played and enjoyed. After seeing
our Michael Jordan, Irakli Alasania and Pamela
Anderson Chairs and Organizations of the session
divided Delis into committees and the committee
Team building started. Consequently when committee members
learned enough about each other they decided to interact with the other
committee representatives. They played games
against other committees , which once again supported the
unity of the team. We’ve seen “Occupant” Otars,
“Nice” Ninos, “Talkative” Tamars and “Vandalist”
Vakhtangs all over the name games of
committees. Although the delegates
where a little bit cold due to bad
weather and some of them even injured
cause of running too slowly from
“Giants” the teambuilding ran smoothly and finished with the
establishment of some good friendships among delegates.
Intimate games had no less popularity on today’s teambuilding - Delis kept hugging, kissing,
harassing and seducing each other during different games till Teo, beloved president of the session,
called everyone to the unforgettable waterfall of the Garden. The laugh-
ter of delegates and smiley faces put the spirit of EYP-ers again on its
heights. While playing in the beautiful nature delegates barley noticed
that the evening had come and it was the time to end team building
games and to have tasty dinner with new made
friends and new impressions.
Dinner Street By Sopho and Guram
It was approximately 6 o’clock when apart from the incomparable
teambuilding, cheerful chairs everlasting energy and delegates’ in-
vincible spirit, we all realized that something was wrong from in-
side – the stomach rebelled.
Decision was made easily- very organized organizers have thought
about it already and in 5 minutes we were all moving down from
Botanic Garden towards the Freedom square. All the committees
were allocated on Leselidze Street to keep the mood of being together.
Despite the fact that all delegates and officials were unconsciously tired, they were ready to prove
everyone that their committee was the best of the bests!
As far as the committee dinner is the last point of Teambuilding, where u are already cerebrating that
you have succeeded while creating team, it was funny and interesting as expected. They talked sin-
cerely, laughed, joked, played and what’s the most important trusted each other. And I truly won-
dered how they managed it – I couldn’t believe they haven’t known each other until the morning. But
then I found that the link between them was EYP itself.
Most of the committees preferred to amuse themselves by
playing ,,Celebrity Games” before the dinner was pre-
pared. The smart delegates managed to guess who they
were in reality, so the puzzles were easily solved. They
were glad to discover that some of them were ,,Sleeping
Beauty”, ,,Sponge Bob”, ,,Qartlis Deda”, and even ,,Gay”.
I have heard that there was diversity between the dishes as
well. Some committees tried their best with ,,Khinkali” and some tasted delicious pizzas. The proc-
ess of spending the whole evening together once more strengthened their team spirit and gave some
extra motivation to overcome all the problems all over the world.
Finally, all the committees took a lot of photos and drifted apart with the smile on their faces, hoping
the next day would be much interesting, creative and unforgettable then it was today.

SEDE By Guram
The committee work had been started after funny and joyful games, which
helped one more time to all of the members of team to feel relaxed and there-
fore prepare for hard work.
The beginning of work consisted with processes of making orders named
GOLDEN RULES during the work and which was accepted by all members
of team and was full as with new ideas, so old rules, made by experienced
and new members of the committee.
SEDE was completed by
younger EYPers and older
ones, experienced and new
members, students or pupils from different Universities or schools and
corresponding to this fact – the ideas and directions of thinking was quite
different, diverse and interesting.
During the debates delegates used to talk after catching magic yellow
ball. So one of the Golden Rule was allowed by delegates by assistance
of Golden Ball, which helped committee work be organized.
In the second part of working with topics there was meeting with expert, Nikoloz Chitadze, who talked about topics simi-
lar to the themes of security and defense and answered exhaustive to all questions, which were raised by delegates.
After getting useful and interesting information about actual topics of this committee and in generally for our country, the
working process continued in usual regime more actively and energetically.
The main topics of discussion were about Georgian relation with Russia, ongoing political processes in Europe, having
connections with Russia and it’s policy implications, how to manage to settle disputed security problems and many other
On the definitive part of working chairs divided delegates into 4 groups, which took different corners of the room and
began discussing their mini topics, sharing ideas between group members and after that presented their decisions to other
groups and chairs, explained their opinions and solutions of the main problems.
In conclusion, committee work was very exciting, interesting and
funny, which was merit of friendly and gifted chairs, who managed
this process effectively and the results were as desired, as expected,
hoping more and more ideas, creativeness, discussion and finally
very glorious results.
Iran VS AFET
Brought by Tatuli
Delegates switched from English to Georgian language and the
committee work went on in Georgian! OMG! Why?! Why the
GOLDEN RULE is violated?! Fortunately everything has its reason-
able reason – dearest president of the session, Teo, introduced a
well known Georgian Expert in Security Issues Nika Chitadze to
the delegates and opened “the first round of debates”.
As far as the delegates had
some doubts regarding some
info they had about Iran and
its current economical and
political situation the appear-
ance of Mr. Chitadze was really
timely. Open-minded and
easygoing delis socialized very quickly
with the honorable guest of the session
and have been asking bunches of ques-
tions during the whole 20-30 minutes.
Active members of the committee felt
free discussing different issues directly
with Mr. Chitadze, they
familiarly used to inter-
rupt him and add vari-
ous questions time by time.
Delegates where mostly interested in some statistical data
and issues more or less concerning again and again of
sphere of influences in the world politics. Mr. Chitadze
talked with delis about the possibilities of connecting Iran
with Nabucco and about the role of different countries in
neutralizing or escalating the situation in the region. Me-
dia, human rights and non-proliferation treaty was also
the issue of their discussion.
The interesting and catchy debates where unfortunately
soon interrupted by the lunch and after the guest left Eng-
lish language “revived” and
took the same place it had
before in the committee on

EMPL By Maia
The Committee of Employment and Social Affairs has been working hard on
finding solutions about poverty and unemployment in the country. Team
members analyzed wide range of problems related to the issue such as,
health problems, involvement of disabled people, protection of Employment
rights and etc..Every participant was
eager to express his/her opinion, which was always followed by
long debates. The participants were very concerned with the topic
and seemed very serious about the matter as it was excpected from
the name of the committee itslef. Some participants are awarded
with good analytical skills, they found contradictions to every
argument, some had creative opinions. The
solutions they found seemed to have no
end, going from one to another AND to another it seemed like AND had no
END. Of course the rules of the session were respected by very participant,
those who were not obeying, received the punishment in front of whole com-
mittee. With the help of hilarious games the brain worked better and partici-
pants found very good solutions for the resolution.
CULT By George
For the very first, I was thinking that problem like dependence of youth on videogames is really
unserious. But after some hours with the Committee on Education and Culture, I found out
that it is a problem which becoming more and more unsettled. Children are losing interest to be
involved in society and culprit is computer technologies, concretely – videogames.
Discussions between delegates reminded me debates in legislative body. Even more, young dele-
gates were more disciplined despite their age, inexperience… these young people discussed
problems professionally; if someone strange observed them, he thought himself within the soci-
ety of experts. They arose such painful problems as lack of education, which is linked on popularity of video games;
easily accessible violate games; the negative role of virtual life. The strength of delegates was that they could create
friendly atmosphere and this point helped them to overcome from hopeless situation easily. And, for sure the decisive
points were their general education and preparedness for the topic.
There were moments when delegates were feeling tiredness and they preferred to play some energetic games such as:
fruit salad, the group massage and trust games. After 10-15 minutes relieve, committee members were becoming mobi-
lized and were developing their ideas in best way. For the end of the day, they already had finished all problems and set
different ways how to overcome. It was surprise for me (sure, from positive side), because part of delegates was first
time on EYP session and second participation for another part.
I can not finish article without expressing gratitude and appreciate to Chair Person NANA MAISURADZE. During the
day I was observing delegates and CHAIR. I was pleasant that could enjoy with well organized team headed by NANA.
Group success from one side was reasoned by delegates’ that they are already realized in their societies, are educated,
purposeful youngsters; from the other hand, if there were not experienced chair like NANA, it might be differently and
committee could not cooperate on common interest. During 3 years, she did her best and a confused delegate, became a

GANABI AFCOs Gonna Be
the coolest on the GA By Tatuli
As soon as everyone was settled for brainstorming and delegates
started to discuss the problems of their topic , Tamta – the most
frantic member of the committee seemed to have had finished writ-
ing the resolution for herself already. Everyone took a deep breath
and rose their hands to ask for the word and the speech defending
their ideas from Tamta’s ones.
Even though, in the beginning of discus-
sions it was hard for the delegates of the
committee on Constitutional Affairs to
decide whether Globalization was the issue of their topic or not, all of them
proved their ex- cellence till the end of the day. While Giorgi was texting time
by time, Andro daydreaming, Erekle trying to play the guitar and Tamta
striving to talk - the whole committee work did not run in an ordinary way.
The Treaty of Lis- bon raised quite many question among Delegates,
questions that were not left un- answered. Delegates were
vis- ited by an Expert Mr. Nikoloz Chitadze who an- swered several
questions about the above mentioned Treaty. Delis
wanted to know more about the possibilities of represent-
ing EU citizens’ interests at EU Parliament and to
know whether the information about the goodness
and fairness of the Treaty of Lisbon was really as per-
fect as retold on the official web-pages of EU and its
Mr. Chitadze talked with delegates mostly about
the importance of opening the informational centers
about EU in different states, about the importance of con-
ducting referendums on different topics in order to raise the
trust towards EU parlament and to represent and defend the
ideas of as many citizens as possible.
After the departure of the Expert AFCO committee members
felt sad about the unasked
questions but still contin-
ued working on their reso-
lution enthusiastically and eagerly. Unasked and thus unanswered ques-
tions could not harm the spirit of our EYPers. AFCO guys claimed to be
the coolest and the strongest GANABIs of the
session. While girls claimed that their social
statuses of “KAI BICHIS DA” was even more un-
doubtable that they would create the best reso-
lution of the session.
ECON By Tako
Corruption or Olympic games? Which came the first? This is the
Really, that is not question. The committee on economic and Monetary
Affairs, shortly, ,,econ’’, have to discuss very, very, extremely im-
portant issue. Like the world’s leaders ,in Georgia , young eyp-ers are
discussing the last- hot- expensive problem- financial crisis.
Firs thing, you should have to do entering their room : just smile!
There ,,golden rules’’ with 8 bullets, insists and makes ☺
Here are some advices, how to guess ECON delegates .
Then, if you see someone, creative and talkative, active ,not ashamed to express his ideas, you should strongly be
sure, he is from ECON!
And, if he talks only in English , works in team and is not late, be sure, this delegate is form ECON..
According to their ,, golden rule’’ I am sure, extremely sure, that
you do what? ☺☺☺☺☺
and, after your Hollywood- smile, you have to be expert on eco-
nomical issues, as in that room, you will hear such terms, that
you have never heard.
so, what do you think, what does SGP means? or, GDP? Had
the same reaction.. sorry..
It happens to be, not something like zuma or Funky chicken,
more serious, ECONOMICAL TERMS! for example, SGP
means- the stability and growing pact.. In this way to, It’s incom-
prehensible for me. :(
But, 10 active, talkative delegates, for the whole day, where
discussing and making deference between ,,facts’’
and ,,problems’’ .. I think, these ,,dangerous’’ terms for me,
seemed so so so easy for them..
At last, about that beautiful Chair, Mariam Chikladze. She had to
resistance those active delegates while discussing there issues.
At the end of the day, she seemed tired and shorter, then she
seemed an hour ago.. That’s because of high heels :) Yes, you
guessed, she taked them off.
So, don’t forget about your Hollywood smile :)
Issue 2 - 3
WE are golden, WE are golden.. LIBEEEEEEEEEEEEE
As soon as the official part of the opening ceremony was over, all the dele-
gates were allocated in their committee rooms. First thing they did was to set
the golden rules, but how funny it shouldn’t seem to u exactly half minute
later 4 of the delegates were standing in front of the whole committee and
were bud spelling different words. So the first punishment have made their
day and with smiley faces they went on discussing such important issue as
it’s a ban of building minarets in Switzerland.
The topic raised a lot of questions in their fresh and smart minds. It was
really exciting to look how they tried their best to find the way for peaceful
coexistence of different cultures together in one state. They were urging that
European values and democracy obliges them to respect and tolerate others freedoms and fundamental rights.
Maybe someone will think that I am subjective while saying that the delegates of LIBE committee were the most hyperactive
and energetic through all the other committees. Can u believe that they were the
only ones who sometimes denied to play the games cause they had to work on the
problem solving, and definitely they were the ones to discuss the crucial issues
while being out on the coffee break.
The loveliest, smartest and cutest chairperson Tiko Janjgava was always ready to
neutralize her delis everlasting energy, that’s why she had to make the whole com-
mittee a group massage; sometimes in contrary she had to punish for breaking
golden rules by making them dance in the centre of the room alone.
Anyways, the work the delegates did during the day was very productive. They
brainstormed for the problems at first and then went deeply into the discussion to
find out how to overcome them together. Have to be sincere, sometimes there have been critical situations in the committee but
they managed to overcome it and that proved once more time that they have succeeded as a team. Later the committee on civil
liberties was visited by special guest an Expert Mr. Nikoloz Chitadze who tried to answer all the questions which was raised by
The day is nothing without having fun- so chair and her awesome team sev-
eral times enjoyed ,,Counting Games”, ,,Frong Song”, and ,,Fruit salad” to
energize themselves and avoid the threat of falling asleep.
Finally the most important part of stating problems and solutions was over,
so all of them clapped each other, appreciated each other’s work, evaluated
the day as a successful one and decided to amuse themselves on a fresh air
before the Star Night would begin.
The Euro Star Night
The euro star night was doubtlessly a splendid one. The jury members Teona Lavrelashvili, Giorgi Chincha-
ladze, Nana Maisuradze and Sandro Jupalakiani were in charge of assessing the performance of our lovely
The first committee to perform was the committee on employment; they were singing the Beatles song “Let it be” in EYP style.
Unfortunately due to some technical problems the group was rejected to pass the 1st round of the competition.
On the contrary to that the employment representative Salome Kandelaki has had a wonderful performance
having sung Lui Armstrong’s what a wonderful world. The jury members had unanimously been in favor of the
group to pass the first round.
The SEDE has also performed greatly, having sung Bob Dylan’s song. They have expressed their hope that
one day the world would become secure.
The LIBE has sung Pancho’s “look up in the sky” successfully with the help of the guitar.
The AFCO committee together with their chair Annie Nozadze has sung paparazzi song “The Stars”, the
whole audience was singing with them, as a result the jury has assessed positively. Apart from that they
have sung Charkviani’s “I will swim over the sea”.
The joint dance Acharuli as the session president Teo Lavrelashvili has called was performed by the mix
group of committees.
The ENVI has made us all dance, with the mix of the songs, the “Boney m’s “Sunny” was the most exceptional.
The CULT has swayed us all, with the wonderful song sung by Pussycat Dolls “sway with me”.
Finally, the chairs have presented their song, which was sung at Batumi national session “change the best of
So the euro star night has ended successfully, Euro Stars were discovered the EYP-ers are all the STARS.

the laid-back snail? Take this quiz and find out!
1. You recently have met your chair and met your committee’s delegates. It is
time for TB. Your chair decides that you should play the “Human Knot”. Dur-
ing the game you….
a. Try to be as helpful as possible. In order to find a so-lution I think that it is neces-
sary to discuss and specu-late over potential solutions so we can untie this knot.
b. You are the one who cracks up the jokes and the fun-ny comments.
c. Follow the procedures/steps but you simply can’t be bothered to share your views.
2.As TB has ended you and your committee pro-ceed to committee work. How prepared are you?
a. For weeks before the session, I have been doing some in-depth research on the committee topic. I want to
be as prepared as possible.
b. No point in doing so, I sleep during CW so I can be the last one standing at night!
c. What? Did we have to do that? Because I didn’t know… not like I care…
3. The Press team have issued the “Speaker’s Cor-ner” where any session participant can raise their
voice about a matter (it can be anything really). What do you think of this?
a. This is a golden opportunity for me to debate a topic with someone else.
b. Isn’t enough that we have CW? By the way, when is the bus coming? I sense that tonight is going to be a
c. That is just pathetic.
4. Time goes by rather fast during EYP sessions. Before you know it is time for GA. On a scale from 1
to 10, how much are you looking forward to this?
a. The scale can’t define my excitement!
b. Couldn’t you have asked me about the Farewell Party instead? Alright, I say 3 just because it’s so spatula

a. You are the Enthusiast. You burn for debates and the exchange of perplexed ideas. You like to aim high
and push yourself to the limits. Just don’t push yourself too much, enjoy the evening activities. After all, you
live only once. Continuing your career as an EYP-er seems likely, you could try out organising ses-sions and
b. You are the Raver. Politics schmolitics, who cares? You think that people should learn to loosen up and
party like it’s 1999. Your abilities include the power to stay awake for weeks without showing any symp-toms.
A position as a journo may be the way forward, if you can be bothered.
c. You are the Snail. Although you have an inter-est in politics and intellectual debates, you cannot be both-
ered to be as energetic as the Enthusiast. If you re-ally have to do a job, you do it well, and that’s what you do
in CW and GA. These characteristics are suitable for practically any session position.
