NOVI SAD – How many times you have heard that someone is fighting for “world peace”? How are you fighting for peace? Do you consider that we are living in a just society? How and to what extent young people influence the security in the region? Is education truly free? What are the differences between the youth of the region and does their cooperation change the game? Does anyone ask you for your opinion? Have you ever been in a situation to simply say: “It’s not fair!” and what did you do regarding it?
Youth Rights Talks is a unique event that puts youth voices and human rights of young people in focus where we jointly search for the answers on these and other questions through youth speeches, and talks with those who are dealing with the issues that concern youth, their problems and future. The participants will have an opportunity to meet other young people from the region, listen to some of them and share their ideas and experiences on the situation and cooperation of young people.
The event promotes the role of young people as the rights holders and important actors in securing peace and creating a just and inclusive society. It will take place on Saturday, 14 December in Novi Sad, Serbia. If you are from Novi Sad or Serbia and you are ready to participate in the event, click the link below to apply no later than Thursday, 12 December, until 23:59.
