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. It invites and welcomes outside stakeholders (partners, supporters, local NGOs) and builds up the connections on the local.
