Skopje- On November 16, representatives from the LBO North Macedonia participated through facilitation in a Youth Talks event within the General Assembly of the National Youth Council of Macedonia.
This collaborative opportunity enabled the LBO North Macedonia to collect input from representatives from various youth groups and CSOs for the Youth, Peace and Security agenda of the United Nations. The fruitful discussion resulted in a set of recommendations, which RYCO will take into consideration for the development of the strategic plans and designing specific approaches to address the necessities of the youth groups and CSOs in the country.
Building on this, on November 27, LBO North Macedonia hosted another successful Youth Talks event, in collaboration with the Union for Youth Work. This time, the event brought together youth workers and volunteers from municipal youth centers from Veles, Bitola, Probishtip, Ohrid and Kavadarci to engage in a discussion on various topics, addressing the challenges that young people face in their place. Additionally, they got well acquainted with the scope of work and the successful stories from the activities implemented by the Regional Youth Cooperation Office in the Western Balkan.
The attendees were welcomed by Mr. Albert Hani, Secretary General, Mr. Vladimir Gjorgjevski, Head of Local Branch Office in Skopje and Ms. Martina Jachevska from the secretariat of the Union for Youth Work.
Youth Talks represents a unique opportunity where participants could share experiences, ideas and create opportunities for further cooperation. In the future, we hope to practice activities of this nature more often to strengthen the networking and cooperation between the members of the municipal youth centers.
