The idea of this programme is to encourage multi-perspective discussions on topics relevant to the future of the entire area of former Yugoslavia. We think that the exchange of experiences between young people from neighbouring countries, which are all at different stages of transition, could help form new ideas and overcome conflicts from the past. Our belief is that only in this way peaceful development of the region will be possible.

The curriculum consists of three core topics, which will be elaborated in very intensive 8 hour working day: EU Integration, History Education and process of Reconciliation in the Region. Selection process will be conducted based on applicants’ motivation to become person who will promote cooperation between Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo* and Serbia.
