A comprehensive survey is necessary to analyze the needs and problems of young people - this is the conclusion made during the first meeting of the Working Group for developing the City of Visoko Youth strategy 2020-2023, held on Thursday, 11 July 2019 at the Visoko City Administration.

One of the goals is mapping examples of good and bad practice, and suggesting efficient, realistic and implementable solutions and goals. According to the Youth Law of FBiH, a youth strategy is a government document outlining a program approach to youth work, defines the problems and needs of young people, strategic course of action, goals and measures for implementing the goals defined in the strategy. The Institute for Youth Development KULT will provide support in the process of developing the strategy.

The meeting was attended by the coordinator of strategy development Amra Omerbegović, and chairpersons and members of working groups tasked with preparing and coordinating sub-tasks in the strategy development process. Working groups were formed to provide input on labor, youth employment and entrepreneurship, education, healthcare, security, activism, culture and sports, and social care for youth.

The first meeting was used to define the steps to be taken in order to examine the problems of young people in Visoko, and arrange for a quantitative and qualitative analysis of the needs and position of youth, all intended to steer the future strategy towards offering concrete solutions and activities.

According to 2018 estimates of the Federal Bureau for Statistics, there are 8,206 young people living in Visoko. Youth account for 21% of the total population of the City of Visoko.

Like most communities in BiH, Visoko is seeing a lot of its young people leave.
