Among other important guests at the Opening
were Minister of education of Adjara autono-
mous republic and the representative of the Min-
istry of Sport and Youth of Georgia. Speech
made by the president of the session - Magda
Świder was really interesting and energetic. It
was full of the expressions that must be written
in their origin.

The sun has finally gone out
from clouds. Undoubtedly, nature
felt that the 2nd International Fo-
rum of Batumi had officially
opened! Yeah, EYP-ers had already
arrived in Batumi and got ready to
start the most joyful Teambuilding
Games. Gathering was planned in
the wonderful BATUMIAN park
(6th May park). The weeping wil-
lows and shine lake all around the
park had created truly picturesque
view. This incredible scenery was truly enough to draw in-
spiration and our EYP-ers have finally begun to play such
desired teambuilding games.
Creatively they have started with a Big fat pony and
then called up ZULUS. As usually at EYP sessions, we have
showed once more how can ameba turn into the rabbit
firstly, into the gorillas secondly, into the Superman thirdly
and then finally to reach the perfection – to turn into the
EYP-ers. This is a quite simple example of such complicat-
ed metamorphosis, but as you know nothing is wondering
in EYP, because here everyone takes everything easy,
yeah, easy but takes it! This is the power! Herewith, EYP-
ers are much more wise guys than you can imagine. They
are well aware that having one head is good thing, but
having two of them is quite better. That is why they are
Building a Team… That is why they can take everything
easy: they are not acting alone but they are in the team.
It was already getting dark but EYP-ers were going on to
build their strong team with having so much fun together.
Looking at the romantic and very purple sunset from un-
forgettable seaside, delegates were imitating the funky
chickens still reminding azure Batumi on their mind :) Yeah,

Eurovillage is definitely the
most beloved part of the EYP Ses-
sion. Why? It’s so simple to guess.
Because there is always plenty of
food, drinks and, obviously, the greatest doze of joy. At
Batumi International Forum everything was in traditional
way, but seems that we overdosed. Delicious national
meals, interesting country presentations and, finally, the
welcoming video of the session from our Editor and journo
team. All this gave us unforgettable feelings and memories
to carry on.
Top chart of Eurovillage meals:
Cheese (Georgia & Latvia)
As Georgia is the host country, its table was bigger than
others’. But due to design and plenty of country information
brochures, on the top probably was still Georgia’s neighbor
- Azerbaijan. Georgia was presented by National dresses,
flags, silver dagger, wine, ―Lobiani‖ hospitability.
During the country presentation the level of patriotism was
on vertex. But then was a welcoming video – with EYP un-
official anthem, funny sketches and welcoming videos of
EYP-ers from Kutaisi, Europe and even US.

From the very first look at John Como, Chair of
BA UMAN FEMM committee, you could easily notice that he is true
European guy. While walking in the streets of Georgia
John’s European outfit (favorite brand: ZARA) was grab-
bing locals’ attention.
STAR But not only his appearance is western, also his way of
living. It would be true to call him even child of the world
or cosmopolite person. He had been living in USA, Mexi-
co and China. Currently he is living in Sweden and plan-
ning to change his place of habitant and start University
in UK. We all wish John god luck for this goal!
As all true Europeans know number of languages, he is
also not exception. He speaks English, Swedish, Italian
and Spanish (Georgian is in the plans for future).
John as EYPer has not so big experience as Shamal (who
has attended approximately 70 EYP sessions), but he is
planning to get more involved in the regional or interna-
tional sessions. As he recalls his first EYP regional ses-
sion in Sweden he says that at first the teambuilding
games were very strange for him. So debutant delegates
should not be shocked or depressed after teambuilding -
such feelings are common for all delegates.
Mariko Takaishvili is involved in organizing and
chairing the EYP sessions in Georgia from the very beginning. For
her EYP started after attending Lviv regional session (2008). ―It was
one of the superb sessions I have ever been! I met with so many
friendly and interesting guys…. I made the defense speech for the
GA and it was quite successful for my first try‖, - Mariko recalls.
Mariko admits that the most beloved part of the session for her the
session is teambuilding part, but she recognizes that GA is the most
important element as everyone can see the final product of their
Mariko as true EYP leader has some important plans regarding the
future of EYP-Georgia. She is planning to organize some training for
the active members of the organization. This initiative would very
much donate in the process of sessions’ quality raising.
As an organizer of previous Batumi International Forum, Mariko re-
calls the president of the Forum Shamal:”Shamal is great per-
son! He does everything with huge enthusiasm. He was
sharing his experience as with delegates and chairs also
with us- organizers. At night he was gathering us and giv-
ing feedbacks, which were really useful.”
Mariko is now making her masters degree in International Law and
parallel she is working in the Ministry of Justice. But Mariko admits:
―EYP for me is like-part time job, for which I feel a huge responsibil-
ity‖. It seems this woman can manage everything. Wish you good
luck for your career and EYP.

What will you do when you exceed EYP age limit? – I have plenty of
time. For example, president of EYP Romania is 35 years old…
Mariam Chikhladze The most intellectual, responsible and serious chair in EYP Georgia. Her attitude to-
ward the teambuilding is oriented on the building trust and collaboration between the delegates. One of her favorite
games is palm and fist which elaborates the partnership between team members.
As an experienced chair, Mari can operate in any committee, despite the knowledge of delegates. Her passionate work
makes everyone involved and specified on the work.
First session for Mari was Sumy 3rd regional session in Ukraine. Primary impression of EYP was very positive; she was
satisfied with the experience and intelligence of the delegates and chairs. “Honestly, this session had big im-
portance for my life. Since then I am very actively involved in EYP and I am not going to give up it! I want
to take part in process of making EYP-Georgia the most successful brand among youth organizations. We
should attract many innovative and educated students”.
Mari believes that ―in the future she will become a president of the session in Georgia and in nearest future a
president of International Session too‖. Mari, we wish you to achieve all your goals!

Approximately a century ago first-wave
feminism activities started and women of
western countries struggled for women’s
suffrage. The aim of second-wave feminism
of 60ies was not just political emancipation
but women’s liberation from sexual and psy-
tries the Scan-
fare states have been labeled as woman-
friendly, and this term implies that they
have been responsive towards women’s
claims, given them a voice and adopted a
range of policies that increased women’s
options. But what about other European
states? The women representation in the
national parliaments of Caucasian countries
varies between 5-11%; 15-20% in Eastern
European countries; 39-46% in Scandinavi-
an states. Who can be the defender of

When it comes to European border con-
trol the numbers speak for themselves. With
42,672 km of external sea borders and
8,826 km of land borders, the Schengen

billion people across the continent, with
300,000 crossings at the external borders in
If you are thinking about moving
to Europe, at first find out what FRONTEX
is. It is the European Union agency for ex-
ternal border security. It is responsible for
coordinating the activities of the nation-
al border guards in ensuring the security of
the EU's borders with non-member states.
Frontex’s headquarters is
in Warsaw, Poland. Its responsibility is es-
sentially simple: to ensure that the EU’s ex-
ternal borders remain permeable and effi-
cient for bona fide travellers while being an
effective barrier to cross-border crime.
For sum-up speech makers, there
is a speech about Frontex given by Federal
Interior Minister Dr. Schäuble: ―The citizens
expect Europe to provide effective protec-
tion of its common external borders. There-
fore it is the declared aim of our Presidency
to further develop the operability of the Eu-

in order to improve the protection of the
