OSCE mentions EYC Thessaloniki as best practice example
January 19, 2015 -
The Regional Youth Conference of the Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe, that took place at the beginning of December 2014 in Prishtina (Kosovo), was devoted to the assessment and discussion of “Tools and Mechanisms for participation of Youth in Public Life – Experiences and Practices in the Balkans”. In this framework, the European Youth Capital project and especially the EYC 2014 – Thessaloniki (Greece) were listed as best-practice examples for the promotion of youth’s involvement in public life, benefiting youth and the community as a whole. Participants saw a specific added value in the massive involvement of civil society in setting priorities, designing actions, establishing partnerships, mobilizing massively its power base and raising a uniform and coordinated voice in the coordination with authorities.
