The project intends to empower and to encourage the young people in Macedonia with digital skills, new ideas and tools which will allow them to be more involved and address the societal issues that affect them.
So far, two educative workshops (in Kumanovo and Struga) were realized, and two more are planing to take place the nexts two weekends in Shtip and Kavadarci.
Activities of this project were realized in May and June 2014. Inspired by the cultural heritage in the Macedonia and Albania which is potentially rich, unique and full with possibilities for the development of cooperation on one hand, and the low level of cooperation between the young people from the both countries on the other hand, as well as their lack of knowledge and capacities of how to foster the bilateral cultural cooperation and dialogue through the use of the ICTs, we initiated the project “Cultural Crossroads”.
As a third phase of this year’s activities in the long lasting project named „Contacts for the Common Future“ 20 youth leaders and youth workers from Macedonia will visit „Youth Empowering and employment“ fair that part of more biggest event „Thessaloniki – European youth capital 2014“.
The 12th edition of the Traditional (since 2003) International Youth Conference will took place in Krusevo, Macedonia from 25st (Thursday) to 29th (Monday) of September, 2014.
