5th JUPPO Project Module Completed

The 5th training module of “Expert Training and Networking for Preventing Addiction in Working with Youth in BiH 2014-2016” project that this time gathered 17 representatives of the civil society organisations in BiH was held from 28 to 31 October at Maršal Hotel on Bjelašnica. 

The module entitled “Communication, Marketing and Lobbying in Area of Prevention and Health Improvement” was headed by Zlatko Sari?, a trainer and consultant from Mostar, whose facilitation enabled the participants to adopt basic skills of public advocacy to be used in the upcoming campaign. 

Beside the aforementioned skills included in this module, the participants developed a concrete action plan for preparing the finishing event as a part of the JUPPO project to be held in September of the following year. For that purpose, adequate working teams were formed and concrete tasks were assigned. Thus, the first step was made towards potentially establishing a network of civil society organisations that work with youth in the area of preventing addiction and promoting healthy lifestyles. 

“I believe that after this module we are at least one step closer to our end goal, which is to establish coordination mechanisms between governmental institutions and civil society organisations in the field of preventing addiction among youth in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The biggest part of work is still ahead of us, but I feel optimistic that we will succeed”, emphasized Magdalena  Schildknecht, the NARCO-NO Association Project Coordinator.

The following, penultimate training module of this project is entitled “Joint Responsibility Project Management” and it will be held in the beginning of December of this year. The training was attended by a representative of the Institute for Youth Development KULT.
