Apply for a youth exchange in Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina

NGO Mladiinfo Montenegro is announcing an invitation for participants in the youth exchange that will be held in Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina, in the period from 24 to 31 August 2020. Youth exchange is one of the activities within the SLAM project (Structured Learning for Awarness in Media), which includes seven partner organizations from Montenegro, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Albania, Bulgaria, Italy, Serbia and Turkey.




The aim of the exchange is to raise awareness and critical thinking among young people about the role of the mass media as a challenge and precondition for a more inclusive society towards migrants and refugees.

The Balkans are still the best example where the media knowingly and even deliberately uses hate speech for sensationalist purposes and thus provokes support for that same hate speech.

Nevertheless, there are opportunities to explore the similarities, differences and potential synthesis between the different yet related challenges facing the Western Balkans and Europe as part of an international effort to lay the foundations for better media literacy and critical thinking at the youth level and even at the level of the whole society, as a means to combat the phenomenon of hate speech and to build a bloc of negotiations on integration processes.

The SLAM project will conduct research on the main challenges and best practices in media literacy in the field of migrants/refugees in Europe and the Western Balkans.

Participants are covered for food, accommodation and training costs.


All young people aged 18 to 30 from all over Montenegro can apply, basic knowledge of English is required.


To apply, you need to send your CV and cover letter to the email:


June 26, 2020 until 6pm.
