It is our pleasure to invite you to our first edition of ” Balkans, let’s get up! Forum : Balkan Drivers of Change ” that will be held from 1st to 4th March 2018, in Belgrade, Serbia.


…is a new and innovative format developed in the frame of Balkans, let’s get up! Programme, one of cooperation programmes of Theodor-Heuss-Kolleg of Robert Bosch Stiftung and MitOst e.v.

It brings together the programme alumni coming from 11 Balkan countries, making regional connections stronger.
