Erasmus+: Youth in Action Forum for the Western Balkans Region


16-19 November 2015 | Podgorica, Montenegro

This forum will bring together over 60 stakeholders to learn more about Erasmus+: Youth in Action, exchange feedback and experiences and develop recommendations to increase the use and relevance of the Programme in the Western Balkan region.
- Do you live in Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Kosovo, Macedonia, Montenegro or Serbia? - Have you been organising or been a partner in projects supported by the Erasmus+: Youth in Action programme? - Do you want to find out more about the Erasmus+: Youth in Action programme? - Are you interested in sharing your experiences with the Programme with other NGOs, national authorities and institutions? - Would you like to exchange your impressions with them about what works well and what could be improved? - Are you motivated to develop and share recommendations and suggestions for the coming years? Then this forum might just be the right activity for you. PURPOSE OF THE FORUM After almost two years of Erasmus+, this forum offers an occasion to share feedback but also to find out more about the opportunities that the Programme offers. In the overall sociopolitical context of the Western Balkan region and European integration perspectives, we also want to look at the actual relevance of the Programme for the Western Balkan region as well as potential synergies with other regional initiatives in the field of youth. PARTICIPANTS Participants will include around 35 experienced stakeholders coming from all of the countries in the Western Balkans -youth leaders and youth workers, representatives of national Ministries in charge of youth and Contact Points for Erasmus+: Youth in Action - as well as representatives of relevant institutions (European Commission, EACEA, etc.). Day 1 of the forum additionally targets 30 youth workers, youth leaders and youth from Montenegro. PROGRAMME The forum will combine two slightly different events that build on each other: Day 1 will offer an open information forum about the Erasmus+: Youth in Action programme, including expert inputs, workshop and discussion sessions. The focus will be put on raising motivation for participating in the European Voluntary Service as well as the opportunities offered by the Western Balkans Window. In addition, some space will be given to sharing information about the developments in the framework of the current Berlin process. Based on the information and discussions of Day 1, Day 2 will offer a framework for consultation about the Erasmus+ programme in the field of Youth among experienced stakeholders, for sharing impressions about how the Programme is currently used and perceived in the region, looking for synergies with other relevant support structures, and putting together some recommendations and conclusions regarding its future development.
