News / YEAs Organize Panel Discussion in Skopje, North Macedonia, Advocating Against Unpaid Internships
Young European Ambassadors Renata Penchova, Damjan Zlatanovski, and Stanisha Stankovikj organized a discussion targeting young individuals, focusing on the implementation of a ban on unpaid internships. This issue has gained significant attention across Europe, especially after the European Parliament recently adopted an initiative led by the European Youth Forum.
The event, expertly moderated by YEA Damjan Zlatanovski, prominently featured YEA Renata Penchova as one of the main speakers. Renata, who is also an ambassador for the #BanUnpaidInternships campaign, emphasized the importance of aligning Macedonian law with the proposed ban, as well as the crucial role of youth in advocating for this change.
During the event, attendees were treated to a screening of a recent interview between the president of the European Youth Forum and European Commissioner Schmit. This interview served as evidence of the Commissioner’s support for the proposed law, which is expected to gain acceptance from the European Commission in the near future.
The event took place at Europe House Skopje.
