(including Kosovo), university students, enrolled in first or second year, majoring in social sciences and humanities. Youth Education
Committeeis a non-governmental organization seated in Belgrade. It aims at compensating for the critical gaps made within the system of
formal education: this system contributes to the authoritarian society and obstructs development of critical thinking. Therefore the
organization strives to provide the youth in Serbia proper informal education, as well as to address long-term analysis of the formal,
evaluate changes and give recommendations to the institutions responsible.

discussions on topics relevant to the future of the entire area of former Yugoslavia. We think that the exchange of experiences between
young people from neighboring countries, which are all at different stages of transition, could help form new ideas and overcome conflicts
from the past. Our belief is that only in this way peaceful development of the region will be possible.
