Green Agenda for the Western Balkans should encourage energy savings, renewable energy, circular economy, as well as nurturing of the region’s exceptional biodiversity.

Erasmus+ projects of Young Researchers of Serbia considered examples of good practice
On the 2nd of July 2018 Tempus Foundation organised an intersectoral meeting in Nis, with the support of the Bulgarian embassy. The meeting gathered representatives of projects in the area of formal education, vocational training, adult education and youth, supported through the national calls of Tempus Foundation in 2017 and 2018 for the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union.
Young Researchers of Serbia has had so far 2 supported projects, one in each of the two calls so far opened through Tempus Foundation within the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union. Yesterday we had a chance to present both projects as examples of good practice: an international youth exchange “EDUropa” and “GREEN VOICE OF YOUTH IN MEDIA: innovations and environmentally responsible consumer behavior”, an international training of non formal education to be held from 20 to 25 August 2018.
We used the opportunity to emphasize the importance of involving young people with fewer opportunities in our international projects, those who don’t usually or don’t have at all possibilities to travel, have little or no language skills, or are in other ways disadvantaged compared to others. We underlined how important is to have reliable and long-lasting partnerships with organisations from abroad, putting light to our extended network of 90 partners from 50 countries we have formed over the past 40 years of our existance. We also confirmed to share the values of the Erasmus+Programme: solidarity, intercultural understanding, friendship between nations, inclusion, and above all, peace.
In January, we have started the implementation of the Green Incubator project. The project leader is Belgrade Open School, partners are Young Researchers of Serbia and the Environmental Engineering Group. We’re about to lunch our first activities, so get ready!
