YOUTH DIALOGUE AND THE FUTURE BEGINS

22 Jan/2020 Published in News

“None of us can change the society as an individual, but if we work together, we can change the future for us and those after us”, seventeen-year-old Nevena Stojanović, the participant of YOUTH DIALOGUE organised by OPENS in partnership with UNICEF in June last year said.

At the Assembly of the Autonomous Province of Vojvodina, the conference organised within the regional program Dialogue for the Future gathered more than hundred young people from the entire country of Serbia. Its purpose was to empower trust in the region through establishment of the dialogue, recommendations in terms of policies and actions in the field of mutual priorities, providing that social cohesion and intercultural understanding were promoted.

As the result of that Dialogue, and several other Dialogues in other cities organised last year in the region, the call has been opened now for cross-border projects in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro and the Republic of Serbia.

The following can be participants of the public call:
public institutions – elementary schools and high-schools, faculties, cultural institutions, research institutes, tourist and development organisations and other public institutions in the three countries
units of local self-government (municipalities/cities) in the three countries
civil society organisations (CSO) in the three countries.

The project proposals must be of cross-border nature, i.e. they must include the project holder and at least one partner organisation/institutions from Bosnia and Herzegovina (for the applications from Montenegro and the Republic of Serbia) or at least one partnering organisation from Montenegro or Serbia (for the applicants from Bosnia and Herzegovina).
