From September until November 2020, the organisation “Team 42” organised research on the needs of young people in Leskovac. They wanted young people to ask themselves and to actively participate in the life of the city.
The goal was to introduce them to the levels and methods of active participation and empower them to take more proactive role in the dialogue with the decision makers. The training that was organised involved 30 young people from Leskovac. They also did mapping on all programs of local institutions which were intended for young people. This was in cooperation with local youth office, and the collected data will be used for the starting point of a new Local Action Plan For Youth.
During December 2020, they organised for the first time a structured dialogue of young people with decision makers in Leskovac. An online training (via the Zoom platform) where they had the opportunity to meet other participants, to find out more about what active youth participation means and what are the levels of participation.
This activity was organized by “Team 42” form Serbia implemented by the Center for Democracy Foundation in the framework of the project Regional Youth compact for Europe.
The project “Regional Youth Compact for Europe” is a three-year project implemented by Center for Democracy Foundation and 13 partners. The project is funded by the European Union and co-funded by Balkan Trust for Democracy.
