Representatives of the Youth Forum of the European Movement in Serbia held the fifth European Class at the Vlasotince technical secondary vocational school on May 25, on the importance of the European Union for the life of citizens.

Peer educators and pupils discussed what the EU represents to them, how EU integration works and the usual preconceptions.

The students learned about student exchange experiences in the Erasmus+ program and other opportunities offered to youth by the EU from the activists.

Youth Forum president Ivana Markulic said she was glad that the last European Class of the project was held at the Vlasotince school, one of the greatest recipients of EU funds in Serbia.

Young educators and activists of the European Movement Oleg Slatina and Nevena Nedeljkovic agreed that youth in Vlasotince were open to exchanging opinions and experiences with their peers, but that they lacked informal education.

The fifth European Class was held as part of the Europe to Me project, supported by the EU Delegation to Serbia.

Earlier classes were at secondary schools in Petrovac na Mlavi, Stara Pazova, Loznica and Tutin.
