Days between 6 to 9 June, KOMS program coordinator Anja Jokić spent in Skopje for the Kick-off meeting of the Erasmus + European Youth Together project called Youth Empowerment Incubator.
The project activities focus on youth participation in different European countries and rely on the contribution of youth and civil society across Europe, as well as a comprehensive analysis of good practices of youth participation in decision-making processes and / or objectives of the EU Youth Dialogue. Through the project, umbrella alliances from different European countries will have the opportunity to learn from each other, to exchange knowledge, experiences and most importantly good practices of youth participation in decision-making processes, which could be applied in other partner countries.
In addition to KOMS, the meeting was attended by representatives of the National Youth Council of Macedonia (NMSM), the Estonian Association of Youth Associations (ENL), the Latvian Youth Council (LJP), and the Slovak Youth Council (RMS). The meeting was important in the context of the representatives of partner organizations to get to know and present their work, as well as the areas in which they will offer their expertise within the project. Also, the foundation for further realization of the project which will last until 2024 has been laid and the next steps and activities have been agreed.
