My name is Sopio and I come from Georgia. I hold a position of a Regional Contact Person for East 2021/2022 in YEE. I learned about YEE from a member organisation Umbrella and decided to apply to get to know more like-minded people and to take part in climate action. Currently I’m studying International Relations but for the future I want to pursue my studies in sustainability and climate change.

I’m looking for a young person to help me in my duties, which include organising meetings with member organisations, keeping contact and updating them with YEE’s new projects and opportunities.  Preferably, the candidate lives in one of the region’s countries, is interested in environmental issues and will enjoy communicating with NGOs from the region.
