Youth Officers Visit Ilidža Municipality

How to be more approachable and how to create a more youth-friendly environment? This was the topic discussed by participants of the Youth Officer Training, members of the Municipal Assembly of Ilidža and Expert Youth Work Associate of the Ilidža Municipality, Amra Bojičić. Assembly members Samir Avdić, Redžo Lemezan and Ahmed Krupalija answered the participants’ questions.

The participants shared their experience with working with youth in different local communities in BiH, discussed ways of employing youth, positive practice and implementation of initiatives, and adapting the way they communicate with youth.

It was also noted that it is extremely important to support youth in their efforts to become independent by starting their own families, buying a home and launching a business. The discussion also included laws and strategic documents, and the Ilidža Municipality was mentioned as a good example in terms of their work with youth and creating and implementing strategic documents.
