Our representatives at Young Leaders Forum, Brussels 2-4th December

EaP Young Leaders Forum

“Western housewifes & Eastern leaders”, our workshop at Autumn AGORA Zaragoza 2013

 "Western housewifes & Eastern leaders"During the Autumn AGORA Zaragoza 2013 the Eastern Partnership Project organised a workshop „Western Housewives & Eastern Leaders”.
