The European Movement in Serbia in cooperation with partners, Center for Ecology and Energy (Tuzla), Institute D4D (Pristina) and ALFA Center (Niksic) is launching a project called the Regional Green Youth Charter, co-financed by The Western Balkans Fund.

We want to empower students from less developed areas, with high GHG emissions in the Western Balkans to take a more active role in their local communities towards fair transition to renewable energy production and GHG reductions, to advocate for a more ambitious agenda among WB policy makers, but also to raise awareness among youth in the Western Balkans, about the importance of this topic.

We will choose 16 students (4 from each community: Serbia, BiH, Montenegro and Kosovo *), who will participate in the training seminar, contribute to the development of an online platform and the Regional Green Youth Charter, within which policy makers will be presented with concrete measures to set more ambitious agenda for reducing GHG emissions, but also their application in practice.

  • advantage: students from Pljevlja, Svilajnac, Tuzla and Obilić, and students of environmental studies – other students will be selected only if there are places left.
