Novi Sad 2018 – 11th National Selection Conference of EYP Serbia
Welcome to the 11th National Selection Conference of EYP Serbia – Novi Sad 2018! Each year, the national selection process of EYP Serbia is marked by a flagship event called the National Selection Conference. This event gathers over 150 participants – both domestic and foreign, gathering young people from different parts of Europe in one city. This year, the beautiful and culturally rich city of Novi Sad has the honours of hosting the 11th National Selection Conference of EYP Serbia. The theme of the session is “Buidling bridges, connecting people” and the session will be head-organised by Jelena Valentik and Srđan Hromiš. The event will take place from July 4th to July 9th, with July 5th being the starting date for the selected delegates.
With this project, we aim towards strengthening and encouraging youth active citizenship on the local, national and international level. The specific ways of achieving this will be through through raising awareness among youngsters about the current local and European matters, improving the participants’ knowledge and skills as well as training for future involvement in similar youth projects and training for peer-to-peer education and activism in local communities.
Furthermore, we wish to contribute to the promotion of democratic values and the introduction to the work of parliamentary institutions. The project will enable this by making connections between young people on a Balkan and European level and strengthening international cooperation among youths in the field of activism and social responsibility.
