After the extensive analysis of the documents regulating publically funded local scholarships in Istria, we held a workshop with interested youth, with the aim to begin drafting the recommendations to local governments. Representatives of local youth councils and the regional one, as well as youth involved in youth NGOs, participated in this day-long workshop and contributed with their experiences and opinions.
The majority of recommendations will revolve around youth participation in scholarships’ policy-making and rewarding volunteering efforts of young people through additional points. However, youth participating in the workshop pointed out that there are many more issues that need to be addressed, so we – Volunteer Centre Istria and youth together – are still working on the draft of recommendations that will soon be available to the wider public debate. So… stay tuned 😉
