YEA at EXIT Festival in Novi Sad

This July Young European Ambassadors (YEAs) gathered in Novi Sad, Serbia, to join the EXIT Festival. YEAs organised four different activities over the four days of the festival, and also had the chance to meet their peers from civil society.


On the first day, YEAs talked to visitors about the key topics that youth advocate for: environmental activities; cultural cooperation; associations with the EU; EU educational programmes and experiences; improving the treatment of vulnerable groups in local communities; and presented the YEA network. The second day was reserved for a “living library” where YEAs interacted with other young people by sharing their stories about Western Balkan culture, tourist sites, famous people, and their personal experiences.


On the third day of the Festival, YEAs organised a discussion on the main stage of the OPENS state of mind zone with topics of LGBTQ+ issues, inclusion, and youth participation and facilities. The speakers were Anja Jokić and Maša Vračar from the National Youth Council of Serbia, Nemanja Obradović from OPENS, and YEAs Anja Kafedziska (Serbia), Enes Pućurica (Montenegro) and Stjuart Islamaj (Albania), and the discussion was moderated by Filip Lukic from the EU Delegation to Serbia.


On the last day, YEAs and visitors painted a LGBTQ+ flag, leaving messages of support to the community.
