Adieu to Hatred!
United Serbian, Bosnian
and Croatian Youth

Regional civil society organisation Balkanac (A Balkaner) is implementing a project called „Isn’t it Better This Way“ („Zar nije bolje ovako“), designed for young people from the region – Croatia, Serbia and Bosnia and Herzegovina, who joined together to send a message of not accepting the hatred and nationalism and want to be friends.

The driving force of the project is Nemanja Cvetković, a 21 year old who returned from Paris to Belgrade, only to see re-emerging nationalism in Serbia and the region. He thus started this project and now the members of his association are making a documentary „Isn’t it Better This Way“, which will explain the idea behind the project. The authors of the documentary are from Sarajevo, Tuzla, Split, Zagreb and Jagodina. They will travel to Sarajevo, visiting historical sites and talking about their joint efforts, and participants from other cities and town will be included.

So far Serbia offered the greatest support for this project, but the organisers hope to attract the help from other countries in the region as well.

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.
