EU Delegation in North Macedonia launches new campaign for young people

North Macedonia

The ‘EU with You’ campaign includes a series of live debates named ‘My Story’ that address issues of concern for the young people in North Macedonia. While sharing personal experiences, participants will discuss topics ranging from youth activism and volunteering to fake news and protecting the environment.

 

The opening episode was on the EU-funded Erasmus + programme. The episode involved three high school students from Skopje, two Young European Ambassadors and the Director of the National Agency for European Educational Programmes and Mobility of North Macedonia.

 

The students presented their first-hand experience of Erasmus+ – participation in a seminar on renewable energy sources in Finland, while Young European Ambassadors, Sara Risteska and Aleksandar Karatosho, elaborated on how their professional skills had benefitted from their rich Erasmus experience.

 

The episode also included a video with practical tips for university students on how to apply for Erasmus + and a survey in which most of the interviewed students had either already participated in the programme or were in the process of application.

 

The next debate is on volunteering. The debates are due every Tuesday at 17:45. Follow them live on MTV1 or the EU Delegation and Europe House’s Facebook pages in North Macedonia.
