The event was aimed at informing young people about the current situation and better understanding of the youth sector, both in Macedonia and the countries of the Western Balkans, facing social, economic and geographical obstacles in achieving their personal and professional development. The activities of this study visit were organized in small teams that investigated the youth support system in Skopje, including experts, users and actors who are directly involved in learning issues, youth mobility and work migration.
