The Balkans are the youngest part of Europe and represent an enormous potential and hope to shape a better future. Yet, high rates of unemployment are a problem for women and youth in the Western Balkan countries. Besides, the COVID-19 pandemic has even further amplified this situation. Through this debate we will share experiences of young people in the region, discuss the importance of youth activism, show Interreg-IPA projects as example and explain how it helps youth to develop their personal and professional skills through inter-culturalism and cooperation. And European Young Ambassadors and opinion leaders will have the opportunity to explain their work on the topic.
