On 1 February 2016, Cooperation and Development Institute hosted the kick off meeting of the regional project “Enhancing Regional Youth Connectivity”, which is implemented in cooperation with the European Movement in Montenegro and the European Movement in Novi Sad (Serbia).
The project aims to provide a regional policy paper allowing for the mapping, profiling and comparative assessment of the existing youth organizations in the three partner countries – Albania, Montenegro, and Serbia. The main findings of the project will be shared with the main regional stakeholders attending the Paris Summit in summer 2016.
Through formal and informal contacts of the three partner organizations with the local youth organizations, and in close collaboration with state authorities, a twofold outcome is expected to be achieved: a major involvement of the civil society organizations in the field of regional cooperation as well as their and contribution to the social development policy-making process.
The regional policy project is part of the Think and Link 2016 Programme, supported by the European Fund for the Balkans.
