Imagine a summer language school in a small, but sunny country with a rich, cultural and food variety offer. The young adventurist Gabor Parti didn’t have to imagine it, because this was exactly his experience during his stay in Republic of Macedonia.This summer, Andras, Gabor, Marcell and 5 other young Hungarians decided to spend a short adventure in Macedonia. Andras and Gabor have already been in Macedonia before, so they convinced their friends that they must visit ‘this country with nice people, beautiful landscape and delicious food’, as Andras says.

Gabor visited Macedonia many times, but before his first visit he had no clue about the country at all, he only knew the flag, all because of his child (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle... Read More »

Youth Has Voice Too?

Posted on August 12th, 2016 in Articles, Youth ActivismRespond to this post »

Difficult, boring, opaque, unimportant – the descriptors of EU affairs world are not flattering. In the light of the widely talked about rise of the far right, increasing nationalism, hostility towards immigrants and the individual closing down of borders, the public opinion on the European project has seemed to lose popularity over the course of the past years. With youth sharply disconnected from the original ideas that supported in the very beginning the creation of a European project, the current political classes tap into frustrations gathered over the past last decades.

The young people of Europe as we know it have been raised in a war-less world and accust (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); omed to a mostly open... Read More »

Embracing Youth Volunteerism in Albania

Posted on July 26th, 2016 in Articles, Youth ActivismRespond to this post »

Gandhi once said: “Be the change that you wish to see in the world”. As a matter of fact, we, the young people, can actually make an impact. In fact, there are so many of us in this world that we have the potential and energy to bring positive change. It all relies on our willingness to act and to be passionate about good deeds. Volunteerism is one civic virtue that has not been very much present in our Balkan societies.

For a moment, I would like you to think: When was the last time that you volunteered? What did you do and how did you feel? If good feelings and memories cross your mind, than this... Read More »

This project aimed to emphasize the potentials and opportunities of the youth civic activism, but also to sti (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); mulate the responsibility and the awareness not just of the youngsters...
