POLITEIA: engaging young people in social and political processes!

May 06, 2021

Youth empowerment & Education

The “POLITEIA Western Balkans School for Youth Participation” event will reunite experts, researchers, representatives from associations and institutions from around Europe to discuss youth participation in the political process within POLITEIA School, that this year has turned digital!  ALDA is glad to be actively involved in this great experience, making its knowledge available to the participants

From a general perspective,  POLITEIA School is a successful project,  which started already in 1997, when, in a period of civic and students protests, people started to turn the attention and deepen their knowledge as far as the democratic and European values concerned.

An opportunity to discuss education, youth and the Balkans future

This year, young people will join lectures and workshops from May 7th until 29th.
ALDA’s Secretary General, Antonella Valmorbida, will be among the keynote speakers at the opening panel, entitled: “Youth in the Western Balkans – Agents of Change”, which will launch this year edition!

Among the main topics on the planning there will be:

– The importance of European Integration
– Youth participation and engagement
– Perspectives on the Western Balkans future
– The challenges of democracy at local level
– Gender, policies and economy

Academics and activists from Serbia, Montenegro, North Macedonia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Albania, Kosovo and Turkey will be attending the event.

ALDA is glad to be part of this great occasion of knowledge sharing and youth engagement!
