Regional Call for Civil Society Projects Supporting Youth

The Regional Programme on Local Democracy in the Western Balkans 2 (ReLOaD2) has issued a call for civil society organizations (CSOs) to submit projects supporting youth. The focus areas of the call include youth volunteering services, intra- and inter-community engagement, regional youth cooperation, and youth mobility.


ReLOaD2 is a continuation of the EU-UNDP partnership which aims to strengthen participatory democracies and EU integration in the Western Balkans by empowering CSOs and youth in decision-making. The Regional Public Call seeks to address the needs of young people, considering regional similarities and challenges. Projects should involve community actions, capacity-building, awareness-raising, and informal education, with cross-cutting elements like social cohesion, gender equality, environmental protection, and human rights.


CSOs from Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo, Montenegro, North Macedonia, and Serbia are eligible to submit project proposals. Priority areas include youth cooperation and mobility through cultural and recreational activities, community engagement, environmental protection, and youth economic empowerment.


Project proposals must incorporate diversity and gender equality principles. The total funding available is EUR 240,000.00, with each approved project receiving between EUR 30,000.00 to EUR 60,000.00. UNDP may not award all funds if proposals fail to meet the specified criteria. This is a significant opportunity for CSOs to contribute to the well-being and development of youth in the region.
