During the second day, Youth Engagement Workers from five different Western Balkan countries attended a cultural visit and an interactive workshop. During the cultural visit, the participants were introduced with the cultural heritage of Mostar and its surroundings. The aim of the workshop was to offer youngsters cross-cultural perception of remembrance seeing monuments from several different points of view. 

On the third day of the forum, youngsters had the chance to visit the National Parliament of Bosnia and Herzegovina in Sarajevo and discuss issues relevant to them with Members of Parliament.
