The first year of our project “Regional Youth Compact for Europe” is over and it’s time to look back at what we’ve done.
The first year was marked by 6 international and regional events and local activities in 11 communities.

Kick off
Everything started with the kick-off meeting in Belgrade, a training for the network members and a kick-off event and a study visit to the National Convention on the European Union. These events served as opportunities to create a functional team and to establish a good cooperation.

Youth compact going regional!
اشتغلت First Regional Thematic Network Forum و Annual Conference of the ALDA – Western Balkans Network for Local Democracy in Tirana gathered more than 80 participants engaged in the furthering of the European accession processes of the Western Balkans countries. Training is essential! Balkan youngsters had a few opportunities to developed their skills during the International workshop “Rule of law and fundamental rights” in Mostar and the POLITEIA Western Balkan School for Youth Participation in Danilovgrad. 50 youngsters were trained on different topics and returned to their countries eager to share the experience with their peers.

Do it locally!
11 local activities were organized in the form of “Community multi stakeholder’s platforms”. They had many formats, such as meetings, debates, presentations and discussions, but they shared the same goal: to create a dialogue among CSOs and youth organizations with local government, public and private sector. They addressed the need to create more cross sector perspective in addressing the reforms implementation. More than 180 stakeholders took part in the activities.

All in All!
The project provoked the interest in the region by gathering more than 360 direct beneficiaries coming from different sectors, as representatives of local business, CSOs, local authorities, citizens and youngsters, who then shared their experiences in their communities.

The project “Regional Youth Compact for Europe” is implemented by the Center for Democracy Foundation, the Balkan Network for Local Democracy, CRTA, Youth Act and Sodem. This project is funded by the European Union and the Balkan Trust for Democracy, a project of the German Marshall Fund of the United States.
