My Europe - Georgia
My Europe / Mein Europa
'My Europe' is an interactive digital series of events that invites its guests to discover Europe.
How does it work? It's simple: We talk to young people from various countries about Europe and their personal topics of interest. The topics are as diverse as the speakers and can range from current political and social developments through culture and science to one's own commitment to greater tolerance or solidarity. In addition to the given topic, all participants can also vote live on other topics and ask questions on the evening itself.
On 31st January, Tiko Lagvilava will take the audience on a virtual journey to Georgia
+++ rescheduled from 24 January +++

Singing, dancing and interacting with random people are her favorite hobbies. Tiko's general interests are democracy, civil activism, youth work and the art of enjoying life.
