Mila Lukić, Secretary General of WYW
The association World Youth Wave is a group of students and young professionals, with a mission to give young people a chance to express themselves, their thoughts, ideas, believes, and connect them on a global level through projects which promote culture and education. We organize youth festivals and events which gather students from all across the globe and through education, but also art and culture, we teach them about multiculturalism, solidarity, tolerance and understanding. Our parole is Youth for Youth and we base our work on embracing the diversity.
We organize one of the biggest student festivals in SEE region, the International Student Week in Belgrade (www.iswib.org) that gathers over 200 young people from more than 50 countries.
In 2017, we shall organize the very first Human Rights Youth Forum in Albania, as regional youth cooperation became an important aspect of our work. We also work on European level by taking part in international activities, mostly Erasmus+ projects as well as Council of Europe and United Nations activities.
We are looking for NGOs from around the world interested in promoting common values and connecting young people from different backgrounds. We look for partners for ISWiB, as well as for Erasmus KA1 mobility projects (youth exchanges and mobility of youth workers). We are eager to collaborate with various NGOs and individuals in our quest to spread diversity and teach about solidarity. We are also interested in projects within the RYCO framework.
