On January 24, 26 young people from 20 communities from across BiH started the training Learn, Think and Act! (UMiD). They are the 14th generation of the training, that has thus far been attended by 300 young people from across BiH.
Teamwork was the topic of the first part of the training these young people will be attending for the following year.
These are young people from 18 to 30 years of age who believe in non-formal education, resolved to create a better environment in their communities. These young people started the training with copious amounts of motivation and interest, and shared their expectations.
“I’m happy and honored to be a part of such a high-quality and comprehensive training such as UMiD. I had very high expectations, and I’m happy to say they have already been met in the first module. I think we worked together as a team since the first few hours of the training, but the topics we learned about helped us improve and define the roles we have, or want to have, in the team. The conclusion we all reached is that we boarded a train and started an adventure. I can’t wait to see how far we can go in the following year.” Zorana Tovilović, Banja Luka.
The next topics young participants will learn about is public advocacy and lobbying, during a module that will be held from February 14 to February 16, 2019 at the Educational-Leisure Center for Youth SPAJALICA.
