What is and why does “My village, our network” exist?
The “My village, our network” project was born to fulfil perceived needs related to development and/or strengthening of the youth from rural areas of Vojvodina and North Albania for community activism by empowering them to use digital skills in order to address important issues in their communities and enabling them to connect with youth from the other country for the exchange of ideas and blog portal development.
Positive change is possible only through comprehensive and a proactive approach and that can be done with young people who want to learn and then to invest their time and knowledge in development of their multicultural and multiethnic area through tourism development, community activism, social entrepreneurship and by raising awareness about positive examples.
