Monday - Friday: 09.00am until 16.30pm
From the period of 21st till 23rd of April Coalition SEGA held three online focus groups on different topics:
Youth activism and participation, Education and sport and Ecology, culture and animal protection.
The purpose of these focus groups was to identify the needs and detect the problems of the young people at the local level. Through the realization of the focus group, the present stakeholders were able, based on their knowledge of the youth needs in the Municipality of Prilep, to discuss real needs and expectations for improving the living conditions of young people in the community.
The focus groups were attended by representatives of the Municipality of Prilep, representatives of cultural institutions, representatives of youth organizations and cultural associations, local actors and youth.
As a result of the focus groups, the proposals will be placed on OPIN platform (www.opin.me) for electronic youth participation through which young people will be able to actively participate and contribute to the proposals. As a final product of these activities, a document with recommendations from the youth will be created which will be submitted to the decision makers at the local level and to the political parties in order to create their programs for the upcoming local elections 2021 according to the needs of the youth.
The focus groups were organized within the project "Youth Empowerment for Electronic Youth Participation" implemented by the Coalition of Youth Organizations SEGA and financially supported by the Erasmus + program, project DIGY.
