The "Yes, Today" Project on Youth Employment in Azerbaijan Successfully Finished

With the support of the Italian Chiesa Valdese Foundation, ALDA has successfully concluded the implementation of the “Yes, Today” project on youth employment in Azerbaijan.

The project targeted Azeri youth in order to support them to acquire skills useful when looking for first employment but also to work together on joint project design and development activities. The 8 young participants travelled to Macedonia in March 2015 to learn about the Macedonian experience aimed at encouraging employment. They were also offered a training on project management cycle, which they could put in practice when implementing the small grant activity in the final phase of this project.

Following the study visit and training, the young participants organised jointly a series of four seminars on youth employment that engaged them actively in transferring their knowledge gained in Macedonia and share their experiences with a wider group of young people thanks to the network of the Public Union “Youth Club”.

The seminars discussed the following topics:

1) “Unemployment and the current situation of the Azerbaijani economy”
2) ”Migration and smuggling due to unemployment”
3) “Employment rates in Azerbaijan and Macedonia: Comparative analysis based on knowledge gained from the Macedonian study visit”
4) “Sharing Macedonian experience on youth employment”.

Over 50 partners met during the Steering Committee 2015, Lower Normandy / Macedonia

More than 50 partners of the Decentralised cooperation between Lower Normandy and Macedonia, met during the Steering Committee 2015, on 3rd and 4th October, this year.

***

This dynamic week between French and Macedonian partners was an excellent opportunity to exchange on the future of the cooperation, such as different strategies, methodologies, areas of work, and detailed analysis of the implemented and previewed activities.

The Steering Committee meeting was opened by institutional cooperation partners, the Ambassador of France in Macedonia, Laurence Auer, the Deputy Minister of Local Self-Governance, Ljupco Prendzov, the Head of International Relations of the Regional Council of Lower Normandy, Sabine Guichet Lebailly, and the Secretary General of ALDA, Antonella Valmorbida.

Recalling the political context of the two territories, institutional partners emphasized the important role of the cooperation in Lower Normandy, as in Macedonia, and their impact in terms of bringing closer these two territories on many levels. In the beginning of the next year, Lower Normandy will unite with the region Upper Normandy creating one larger region, which will undoubtedly change the prospects of the cooperation.

The meetings continued reviewing different key points in the cooperation, such as the  activities conducted in the 2014-2015 period and a presentation of the third and final year of the three-year program of decentralized cooperation between Lower Normandy and Macedonia for the period 2013- 2016. The Action Plan for 2016 was also discussed, together with the new prospects and ideas for 2016.

The partners of the call for proposals, the twinned municipalities and the actors on each theme: Memory and Reconciliation (WW1), Youth, and Culture were able to present and analyse their activities and share their thoughts and experiences. In addition to these individual meetings, interventions in different workshops showed the variety of developed concepts of work, which share the same objective: the importance to gather and share good practices to strengthen the actors of the two territories.

The two days ended with moments of reflection on different themes of work: Culture, Youth, Human Rights and the European Funds in the cooperation. Throughout the discussions, the partners expressed the wish to further link their activities and create a real synergy. All partners agreed that they will commit to stronger communication, reinforcing the links between the partners and their activities, which will also transfer into the communication towards the public: citizens, young people, local authorities, organizations and institutions. The great challenge for the cooperation for the last three years and in the years to come, is indeed the transversal frame of the projects which can be a basis for establishing new links and partnerships in both territories. The Decentralised Cooperation must be a real platform open to all, to all stakeholders and actors.

This steering committee was also an opportunity to welcome many new partners who were able to discover the core of the cooperation. They have shown great motivation to explore the concepts of work, optionally through trainings on International Cooperation, to deepen their knowledge on both territories, and on the European Funds.

This steering committee has again shown the potential for continuous cooperation with partners, now and in the future, with increasing numbers and motivation. Diverse challenges lie ahead, and new areas of cooperation to be explored, all by reinforcing the existing and creating new links between partners and territories.

The Decentralised Cooperation between Lower Normandy and Macedonia is coordinated by ALDA, funded by the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs. For more information please visit the official website of the cooperation www.bn-mk.org.
