#OSCEyouth: Regional Connectivity & Millennials – Conference on Youth Connectivity in the Western Balkans

The OSCE’s commitment to promote the role and the inclusion of youth in its peace and security agenda dates back to its founding document, the Helsinki Final Act, and has been strengthened through many subsequent OSCE decisions. The OSCE Mission to Serbia actively supports the recent upward trend to foster regional connectivity and co-operation among young people, most notably through training courses and small-scale joint projects for young people from Serbia and Albania.
  • WHEN – 13 December 2017 (evening) – 14 December 2017 (All day)
