On 17 June, the programme France-Balkans held their workshop on Youth aimed at further discussing the project submitted to the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Regional Council of Auvergne.
ALDA was represented by the Director Antonella Valmorbida and the project-manager in charge with the programme France-Balkans, Biljana Zasova.
The main idea of the project is to organise an itinerary seminar for 40 young journalists, amateurs or students, disadvantaged youth working in local radios and TV channels coming from all the French and Balkan partners in the programme. The objective is to reproduce the itineraries of famous journalist, Albert Londres, who investigated about Balkan politics and social affairs in early 20th century. The youngsters will have the opportunity to realise a web documentary or open a web radio after their trip around the region. A Youth in Action project will be submitted in support to the present action within France-Balkans.
The Vichy Auvergne county (http://www.paysvichyauvergne.com/1_Accueil.html), a future member of ALDA, will be responsible for the main management and fundraising. ALDA and Courrier des Balkans will implement the project.
