Balkans Group organised the second edition of the 2022 Executive Programme “Youth in Politics: Governance and Political Systems”. Thirty young members of all parliamentary parties participated in an intensive four-day training of learning new topics and skills. The participants came from different municipalities.
The opening remarks were delivered by Mrs. Vlora Tuzi Nushi, Head of UN Women, who encouraged young people to be as active as possible and to fight for their involvement in all important decisions for our country.
As part of the Youth in Politics Executive Program, Balkans Group organized two study visits, one to the Information and Privacy Agency, where the youth met with Valon Krasniqi – Director of the Department for Personal Data Protection and Bujar Sadiku – Director of the Legal Department and the next visit to the Ministry of Defense of Kosovo, where the young people were hosted by Minister Armend Mehaj, who spoke about the functioning and goals of the Ministry.
The “Youth in Politics” component is part of the multi-pillar project “Elevate peace & state-building agenda and advancing European agenda”. Balkan Group’s Youth in Politics education programme seeks to offer young individuals and members of political parties throughout Kosovo a chance to develop a practical toolkit to help them overcome some of the most critical hurdles to their progressing career.
The project is funded by the Royal Norwegian Embassy in Pristina.
