Serbian Youth Projects Receive over 1m €

Serbian civil society institutions were highly successful in the Erasmus + programme, attracting the sum of 1 058 740 euros for the realization of 26 approved projects.


Within the First call for the Western Balkans - Erasmus+: Youth in Action the total of 149 projects were submitted for evaluation. The European Commission from the Brussels selected for funding 43 projects in the Balkans, out of which 26 or as much as 60% from Serbia, which is a testament to its high quality.

The approved sum of over 1 million euros will go to implementation of 26 youth initiatives from Serbia in the field of youth employment, youth work, entrepreneurship, social inclusion, youth empowerment and intercultural learning. As part of these projects, youth from the whole of Europe will have the opportunity to visit Serbia, learn and gain skills through trainings, camps and other activities organized by experts from Serbia. Also, young people from Serbia will be able to travel for free and improve their skills in the EU countries.

Erasmus + office in Serbia and the organization „Hajde da…“, as the Contact point for youth projects, organizes every year several trainings, info days, seminar and promotions throughout Serbia. This enables hundreds of organisations and institutions from Serbia to get an information about the Programme, and thousands of young people are informed about the Erasmus + Youth in Action programe and what it offers to the youth in Serbia.

MAKE A STAND – LET’S BUILD OUR FUTURE TOGETHER!

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.
