Free Youth Policy Dictionary

Several Serbian institutions developed the first Youth Policy Dictionary. The Dictionary defines a number of different terms in the field of youth policy. It is available in Serbian and thus accessible to all B/C/S/M speakers in the region, and can be freely downloaded here.

Youth policy dictionary has been developed by: National association of Youth Offices, Serbian Roof Organisation of Youth and National Organisation of Youth Work Practitioners in cooperation with the Ministry of Youth and Sport.

The aim of this dictionary is to define relevant terms in the field of youth policy, as well as actors in the field and their roles and positions. The dictionary in particular purports to contribute to regulating relations between the relevant Ministry and civil sector youth organisations by offering standardized and unified terms. The dictionary also defines the roles of international partners and actors relevant for this field, with the intention to represent this filed on the European level. The Dictionary has been compiled with contribution from various youth policy actors, public institutions representatives, youth organisations etc., by providing their comments, ideas and suggestions within a wide process of consultations that followed the work on this Dictionary.

The right to publish in the magazine belongs to everyone!


M(A)Y publishes a variety of media contents – texts, caricatures, photos, video-clips – created by young people, youth workers, experts, and all others that wish and have something to say about youth policy.

Geographically, M(A)Y e-Magazine is primarily targeting European countries, but it also publishes important news and initiatives in the field of youth policy worldwide.

The e-Magazine gives special attention to youth media activism, wishing to present the examples of best practices of using different media for youth activism.

Besides authored articles, M(A)Y also gathers together relevant articles from other web-sites. M(A)Ye-Magazine is thus a virtual space where visitors are able to get information about the international situation and problems of youth policy, and the place where young authors are able to write articles and other content intended for improving the youth policy internationally. In this respect, it has vital importance for the intraregional and transregional association, understanding, coming together, promoting dialogue and cooperation.
This portal has been created as part of the international MEDIActive Youth project implemented within the Erasmus + Programme. The aims of the project are:
Increasing the capacity of youth organisations/workers in the field of media literacy and media activism as well as fostering their active participation in society
Fostering intraregional and transregional cooperation between 11 youth NGOs from 10 countries from Western Balkans, Western Europe and North Europe regions
Strengthening media promotion of youth policy and democratic values in partner countries on transregional and European level.
