In the period from 13 to 15 August 2021, the second part of the project “Stronger together: Youth voices for a more resilient BiH” was held, implemented by the Center for Education and Gathering with the support of the Heinrich Boll Foundation.
It is a three-day seminar attended by activists of political parties, young activists and several members of the Municipal Council of Jajce, and where through workshops they acquired the skills of writing a “policy paper” used as a tool in advocacy processes.
The goal of the program is to create a synergy of youth activists and members of youth branches of political parties in order to create new policies based on the proposals of socially active young people.
The workshops were moderated and led by Randall Puljek Shank, Ph.D., activist in many fields, president of the Bosnian-American Friendship Association.
The project brings together young activists and politicians aged 18 to 30 to draft a policy proposal with their unique policies, views and on behalf of all whose rights are threatened by old politicians who defend and represent only their own interests.
This is another in a series of projects implemented by COD with the Heinrich Boll Foundation, which lasts from 01.06. to 30.09.2021.
