FBiH youth know what they want. They have proven this by participating in “Dialogue: Youth Strategy in FBiH”. Their directions were included in the preliminary draft of the Strategy that is supposed to be developed by the end of this year.
The fifth meeting of the Working Group for developing the Strategy was held in Mostar.
The members of the Working Group briefly evaluated the “Dialogue: Youth Strategy in FBiH” event at the meeting, planned future steps and the greatest section of the meeting was dedicated to the preliminary draft of the Federal Youth Strategy developed on the basis of already written matrices, analysis of states in all relevant areas and institutions and based on the recommendations of civil society organisations that participated in the Dialogue.
Particular attention was dedicated to establishing institutional liabilities for all measures in preliminary draft of the Strategy.
The strategy is planned to consist of the five following areas:
Youth work, employment and enterpreneurship
Youth education and science
Youth social care
Youth health care
Culture, art and sports
Youth activism (participation, volunteering and mobility)
In the following period, the Working Group members will review the draft in detail, deliver their comments and suggestions and determin the liability and implementation methods.
Adopting Youth Strategy at all federal levels is determined by Youth Law of FBiH that was initiated by the Institute for Youth Development KULT and that was adopted in June 2010. The Youth Strategy in FBiH development process is coordinated by the Federal Ministry of Culture and Sports and the Institute for Youth Development KULT was appointed to provide expert-advisory assistance in the process by the decision of the Government of FBiH.
