The Youth at Risk Balkan conference was held in Belgrade from 28 to 29 February 2012. The conference provided an opportunity to exchange ideas and experiences to improve the prevention and inclusive programmes of the region, improve youth representation, especially of those youth at risk and promote examples of good practice of the programme for decreasing youth at risk. The conference was attended by representatives of KULT, as a part of the Info-point for Youth.
By creating councils – teams – work groups for youth at risk, that will consist of experts in the area, we will provide support to youth offices and serve as another connection between youth and the local authorities. This is not about creating new, unfunctional councils, but creating a unique body, the sustainability of which will be provided by responsible and motivated members who will cooperate, learn, exchange ideas and information, research requirements based on which they will make plans and deliver conclusions, guidelines, recommendations and a common action plan stated Ivan Ĺ˝ivkovi?, the Project Coordinator.
Just as a reminder, as a part of the activities for Youth Strategy, the Institute for Youth Development KULT, in cooperation with Partnerships in Health and the YPEER Network, celebrated accordingly the 1 December, World AIDS Day.
Partnerships in Health is implementing the regional Youth at Risk, supported by the EU, and in cooperation with partnership organisations TOC from Serbia, Cazas from Montenegro, the Youth Council from Slovenia and local youth councils from 5 BiH municipalities (Banja Luka, Biha?, IlidĹľa, GoraĹľde i Fo?a).
