Final conference of Western Balkans Youth Lab project

An event titled “UNMUTE: A region fit for YOU(th)”, organised by the Regional Cooperation Council’s Western Balkans Youth Lab Project gathered more than 40 young people and policymakers from the entire region. They presented their activities and solutions for the issues faced by young people in employment, for those not in employment, education or training. The event also marked the successful finalisation of the Youth Lab project managed by Regional Cooperation Council (RCC).


“Our journey was more than a science project – it is real and it produced results that will genuinely transform the way things are being done: the Youth Lab project put forward 11 recommendations, built capacity through its training, and developed solutions. Generation of 2020 – 2022 – kudos to you! You are the icebreakers! You have proved that a process which was experimental – aiming to place young people at the table with policymakers to create better, youth-centred policies – works. Not only did you prove it can be done, you also paved the way for the pool of experts in the second Youth Policy Lab on Mental Health,” concluded Ognjen Marković, Team Leader of RCC’s Western Balkans Youth Lab.
