COD/Youth seminar “School of local activism”

From 3 to 5 December 2021, organized by the Center for Education and Socializing (COD) in Jajce, a seminar for young people “School of Local Activism” was held. The aim of the seminar was to empower young people to be active members of society, aware of their capacities and the possibilities of each individual’s influence to be a driver of change in society and the environment in which they live.

Through interactive workshops and practical examples, mentors passed on knowledge and skills to participants and taught them methods of influencing better change in every segment of society.

– Young people are our future and strength. We are aware of the large outflow of young people and leaving BiH due to, as many stated, the hopelessness of the country in which they were born, as well as a number of more or less well-known, negative things that we encounter every day. We decided to hold a seminar and empower young people who have not yet made a final decision to leave, that there is a way to fight that could bring positive changes in society – said COD manager Samir Agić.

The three-day seminar was attended by young people from Jajce, Donji Vakuf, Zvornik and Bosanska Krupa, and at the end of the seminar they were awarded certificates.

The seminar was supported by the European Fund for the Balkans.
