YBHforWBT visited Serbian Ministry for Youth and Sport

 

YBHforWBT representatives had an opportunity to visit Serbian Ministry for Youth and Sport, as a part of the study visit to Serbia. They have talked to Zorica Labudović, who is in charge for cooperation with the associations and local offices for the youth all over Serbia. The curiosity of this Ministry is that this governmental body is, basically, founded after advocacy campaign of youth organizations, 11 years ago. YBHforWBT members could hear more details about Law of Youth, what was especially important for our colleagues from Macedonia and Montenegro, since this law is currently in the procedure in both countries. Albanian youth organizations are still in the process of lobbying for creating and adopting law related to the youth issues.

Members of the YBHforWBT network were mostly interested to learn more about the capacities of the National Youth Council as well as the models of cooperation this Ministry is offering to youth organizations.

Study visit participants had a great opportunity to be part of the cultural and historic tour through the Palace of Serbia, one of the most impressive buildings from the socialistic period of ex Yugoslavia.
