Networks for youth – brighter partners for brighter future
About the project
The project “Networks for Youth – Brıghter Partners for Brıghter Future” is transnational collaborative project aimed at improving the capacity of Western Window countries such as Serbia and Bosnia and Herzegovina to collaborate and interact with EU partner organisations so as to research, implement and transfer innovative approaches, best practices and strategies for the benefit of youth.
The project partners are experienced civil society organisations and local bodies – municipalities from both EU and Western window countries which join their efforts to increase the collaboration among themselves as well as with external stakeholders for youth from the participating countries.
The project is a set of virtual networking and collaboration, on-line management combined with training courses, conferences, large scale events and mobilities for youth organisations and stakeholders active in the field of youth. All events are transnational. The events are open to youth SCOs managers, decision makers and project managers from each partner and external SCOs. In addition to them forums, seminars, round tables and large scale events will promote the project activities, and the outputs – handbooks, training manuals, training curriculums, and youth projects designed.
