Young people are the driving force of the society that with their innovation, perseverance and persistence contribute to a better future. Recognizing the importance of youth involvement in the decision-making process, all the project partners implemented the activity Youth Megaphone in 9 communities in the Balkans on the occasion on Youth international day on the 12th of August.
The activity Youth Megaphone gave the opportunity to youngsters to shout out their opinions and express them-self on different topics related to youth issues. They had opportunity to do that on two ways: to use a megaphone to express their wishes, ideas and remarks regarding youth status in society or to leave a short note and put it in the box that was posted on the spot of performance. All the project partners chose the way that is more convenient for their community.
All the messages formulated on that day were be collected and will be integrated in one single document that will be presented and submitted to local authorities in proper form during Youth Taking Over Day.
This activity had a symbolical aim, to show a necessity to provide tools and mechanisms for youngsters to raise their voice and to have opportunity to be active participants in social life.
