The Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung and the Youth Association creACTive would like to invite you to the open floor discussion “Being active in civil society: Developing youth work and volunteering in Macedonia”, which will be held on the 5th of December 2011, from 13:00 – 16:00 at the EU Info centre in Skopje, located in the EU Delegation’s building.
The Open Floor Discussion is envisioned as a platform for discussing the opportunities for cooperation between local self-governments and civil society organizations (CSOs) in Macedonia, particularly in the field of supporting the development of youth work and volunteering in the country. The event is being organized as a part of the efforts for strengthening the civil society in Macedonia and within the celebration of the 5th of December as an International Day of Volunteering. It will bring together representatives from the Macedonian government, local municipalities and civil society organizations; as well as guests from the twinned cities of Skopje: Dijon (France) and Roubaix (France). Thus, the discussion will provide an opportunity for sharing experiences and good practices of cooperation between local governments and civil society organizations in Macedonia and in other countries.
