Preparations for Full Participation of Serbia in Erasmus+

The Republic of Serbia currently participates only partially in the Erasmus+ Programme Union for education, training, youth and sport (Erasmus+ henceforth), but in the near future should establish full participation, which means that the individuals and institutions from Serbia could participate in all parts of the programme. Full membership in the Erasmus+ programme is a must for Serbia not only as this is required of her in order to fulfill obligations from the Chapter 26 in her EU accession process, but also in order to be able to attract significantly higher funding to help young people and develop education in Serbia.

In the course of implementing these preparatory measures, so called project piloting will be performed, which means issuing test application calls for those types of calls that Serbia was ineligible for so far. It is estimated that organisations will be able to participate at the Key Action 1 (KA1), which apply to youth and youth worker’s mobility in the autumn of 2016, and that from 2017 KA2 projects of institutional cooperation, in the first place strategic partnerships, will be opened for Serbia. It is vital to reach high percentage of high quality projects during the implementation of these preparatory measures, as that would confirm Serbia’s capacity for getting funds from these programmes and thereby reach full potentials and partake in all activities that the programme offers to the Programme countries.

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.
