News / YEA network presents at the RYCO volunteering conference
The Regional Youth Cooperation Office (RYCO) organised the conference titled “A Better Region Starts with Volunteering” in Tirana on 7 and 8 December with participation from the Young European Ambassadors (YEA) network. Giada Trucco (Directorate-General for Neighbourhood and Enlargement) and Selena Tasic (WeBalkans, YEA) were featured as part of the programme on partner youth organisations, while Marko Lončar and Shpetim Ramadani – RYCO volunteers who are also Young European Ambassadors – took part in the living library activity.
The event was organised as part of the ROUTE WB6 project, which aims to promote regional volunteering as a tool that will contribute to reducing social and ethnic distance among young people in the region, strengthening their prosocial and European values, leading to reconciliation, stability and prosperity in the six Western Balkan partners.
The project is being implemented across the Western Balkans by a consortium led by the Regional Youth Cooperation Office in cooperation with Association for Democracy and Prosperity – Zid, Beyond Barriers, the Institute for Youth Development KULT, Lens, the Southeast European Youth Network, the Young Researchers of Serbia, and the Bitola Youth Cultural Centre.
