Brussels, 17.11. – 22.11.2019.
RLPA Alumni session gathered young participants from liberal political parties from Western Balkan countries. It took place from 17th to 22nd November in Brussels. The aim of RLPA academy is to empower young politically active people and to provide knowledge and skills that will help them in their further political engagement in their political parties and in the political life of their countries.
Participants learned how to identify joint regional problems. We talked about lobbying and advocacy in the EU and worked on writing and drafting a resolution „We are Europe Too“, which is outlining many reasons why the Western Balkan countries should be part of the EU. We visited EU Parliament where the Resolution was presented and discussed with MEPs Ilhan Kyuchyuk, Katalin Cseh and Svenja Hahn, and it will be proposed at Young Liberals Congress of Europe in March 2020.
Participants also defined 2 project activities they will be working on: Human rights training and Political communication training.
