Experience: Iva Mijovic

In the period from February 12th to February 18th in Zakopane, Poland, was held project in cooperation with Erasmus + program. It was an initial meeting aimed at networking young people, in this case from six countries across Europe. Participants were from Montenegro, Serbia, Macedonia, Albania, Greece and Poland. The primary goal was to review and find ways to ensure the best possible access to media tools for young people in need and with fewer opportunities.
“The organizations that participated were Mladiinfo Montenegro which I represented, Youth Society 4, Youth Council Next Generation, Media Terranea, Do it and Youth Workers’ Union.
During this project, members of NGO’s of participating countries gathered to identify the problem of young people in need, discuss these issues and find solutions. This project was the first in a series of three scheduled, and all with the intention to create a platform that will offer better opportunities for those who still do not have them.
There were organized intercultural evenings, where each country talked about their customs, food etc. I liked the most night when Greece, Macedonia and Poland had their own customs in the improvised wedding. Then, some evening the Greeks gave us to prepare Tzatziki sos, each country got to ingredients and was supposed to make sos the best they could, and later Greeks tasted, where they evaluated all the participating countries, but unfortunately Montenegro did not win.
Especially I liked the city that organizers chose for this first meeting. The town on the Tatra Mountains was besieged, popular with skiers in the winter months and hikers who come here all year round. At the end of the 18th and early 19th century, the Zakopane became the most visible art colony of Poland, and the sunken culture ended with Soviet influence after the Second World War. Today it is a culture story complete with beautiful wooden houses and a real winter exterior for temperatures below zero and very cold winters.
I have learned a few things that I can implement through work in the youth sector, but I hope after training that young people in Montenegro will have the opportunity to hear and learn what they have not known so far, ” said Mijović.
