Invitation to the 20th International Youth Conference

„Dear University of Banja Luka,

We are more than pleased to invite your students to apply to the International Youth Conference “EUROPEAN VALUES FOR THE FUTURE OF THE SOUTHEASTERN EUROPEAN COUNTRIES”, happening traditionally for the 20th time from 29th September till 3rd of October 2022 in Krusevo, North Macedonia.

The conference is led by Youth Alliance-Krusevo, supported by the Federal Foreign Office of Germany, and organized in partnership with Regional Youth Cooperation Office (RYCO), Friedrich Ebert Foundation, Office Skopje, and Friedrich Naumann Foundation for Freedom.

Our conference, since the first edition is serving as a networking platform for enhanced regional cooperation between the young people.  In June 2003, Thessaloniki Summit took place, to start the integration of the Western Balkans into the European Union. Later, at the same year, the first conference took place to identify, promote and connect the most impactful young leaders from SEE region for joint action directed towards European future for the region.  Today, almost 20 years later we are an accelerator for a dynamic community of young people with the vison, courage, and influence to bring progress in the integration process.

The conference will bring together up to 60 participants from countries from the SEE region (North Macedonia, Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Greece, Kosovo, Montenegro, Romania, Serbia, Slovenia, and Turkey) and guests from youth organizations partners from Germany, France, Italy, and Poland.

We would kindly invite you to share this call with your network of students, youth workers and young people and motivate them to apply. The call is open until the 18th of September 2022.
