Reunion For A Change
This time the group of #Triangle4Youth has settled in Kobuleti, a beautiful town by the seaside. Representatives of 5 countries (Armenia, Finland, Moldova, Sweden and Georgia) has reunited once again for the upcoming round - a seminar. Our main aims are to share the practices from the local actions and discuss the changes in the policies, to give space to plan the #advocacy and information awareness campaign with and for young people. And of course, the publication. We're going to create one, all by ourselves.
So, first we spoke in small groups about the new practices, implemented in participating municipalities, expected changes in the budget, updates in the youth work and those educational activities which were run by the participating NGOs and youth organisations throughout the intermediary phase of #Triangle4Youth.
Yeap, we're updated now. We've heard of so many good news like opening youth centers in the Republic of Moldova. We were more than excited to discover that one of our participants, Nadejda became the director of one of the youth center of Cahul municipality. She was a partaking in the fellowship to Sweden (second phase of #Triangle4Youth) and had a chance to discover the aspects of Swedish youth work and youth policy. There were a lot of news from Armenia too. Young people had strong influence on political changes that took place in March. Now they feel like there's more transparency in policies and more opportunities and access to fulfill young people's rights.
We've got a lot updates from the Georgian teams too. Apparently, a very important event took place in Tbilisi - Youth Forum 2018, where young people, representatives of university self-governments and young leaders were invited. The best thing about this forum was that young people could participate in the planning of Tbilisi summer camps. Plenty of youth organisations took part in the open call for summer camp projects. This is something new.
Another great news! Use-It : Free Map by Locals For Young Travelers project got financed by the Tbilisi City Hall and therefore, our Georgian participants seem very much accomplished. They had a long term strategy to achieve this goal.
