The first meeting of the Regional Network for Local Democracy for this year in the framework of the project ‘’Balkan Regional Platform for Youth Participation and Dialogue’’, took place in one of the host cities of the project – Knjaževac (Serbia), from 8 till 11 February 2016.
The coordination meeting brought together the partners and members of the project from the Local Democracy Agencies from Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, Kosovo* and Serbia, ALDA Skopje and ALDA, represented by the Secretary General, Antonella Valmorbida. The young people and representatives of local authorities from Mostar, Prijedor, Zavidovići, Nikšić, Skopje, Kavadarci, Subotica, Peja and Knjaževac, also joined the meetings and discussed the next phase of the project.

“This meeting is an opportunity to determine the second phase of this project and how to ensure better participation of the young people in the society. All the representatives of the LDAs, together with the cities and municipalities within the network and the youth in this project are all focused on the youth and their options and opportunities to act on municipal, but also on European level,” said Dobrica Milovanović, member of the Governing Board of ALDA (video here).

The four working days were packed with numerous meetings of the working bodies of the Regional Network, aimed to evaluate and improve the work within the Network, and strengthen the regional cooperation of the partners.
This event was also an excellent opportunity to attend a side program, designed especially for the representatives of local authorities of the project, in order to boost their further cooperation within the Regional Network for Local Democracy.
The Regional Network for Local Democracy is supported by EU, through Civil Society Facility Operating Grants to IPA CSO Associations.
