Young European Ambassadors participate in UN Youth Assembly in Kosovo

The 5th Youth Assembly of the United Nations took place on the 7th and 8th of June in Prizren, Kosovo, under the theme “Activate Youth Power: Perspectives of Youth Participation in Kosovo and Western Balkans.” The United Nations Youth Assembly in Kosovo serves as the largest annual multi-ethnic platform, bringing together young leaders from diverse communities, UN officials, and decision-makers at all levels. Its purpose is to address youth-specific issues, foster inter-ethnic and inter-cultural cooperation among youth, facilitate synergies, and assess the progress made in implementing the Youth, Peace, and Security agenda. This year’s event convened 150 young leaders and decision-makers from the Western Balkans, including the participation of Young European Ambassadors (YEAs).


Amina Kaja had the privilege of being a speaker at the workshop titled ‘Youth in International Organizations,’ where she discussed the YEA network. She also attended the assembly as a delegate. Additionally, delegates Aleksandra Grbović Bitić, Arjana Rudari, Olta Shehu, Ardit Gërvalla, Kleidi Memo, Besfort Spahijaj, Filip Milenkoski, and Arijel Kurtagić represented the Young European Ambassadors. Viola Maksuti and Suhel Ahmeti were part of the organizational team.


Throughout the numerous workshops, the YEAs had the opportunity to share their experiences and engage in discussions with representatives from various organizations. By the end of the event, they developed their own project proposal, ready to be considered for funding.
