The year behind us has brought some exciting events and changes for ENIL Youth Network. The Network has got new Youth Board which was elected during the ENIL 2017 Freedom Drive, held in Brussels in September. Our new Youth Board is composed of the following people: Rados Keravica (Board President), Rebecca Farren (Vice-President), Kamil Goungor, Andrey Sosnov, Beyza Unal and Marijeta Mojasevic. Youth Board members have brought in new energy, enthusiasm and ideas and we are sure that they will keep up the good work of the ENIL Youth Network and will continue to develop it further.
ENIL Youth Board has drafted a renewed ENIL Youth Strategy based on discussion with ENIL Youth members at the Youth General Assembly held during the Freedom Drive in Brussels. ENIL Youth Strategy will be publicly available soon on our website and it highlights our work priorities for the next period. We will keep you updated!
We remind you that the call for participation in our next study session on political participation and active citizenship is open until 8th January 2018. Please make sure to spread a word among your peers in your country and apply if you are interested!
Members of the Youth Network can also join one of the six task groups listed below, by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org by 31st December 2017:
- Independent Living – facilitated by Kamil Goungor
