Online Activism Workshop
We aren't born woke, something wakes us up, and for so many people, what woke them up was a Tweet or a Facebook post." Led by this, within the Wake Up project, today on 24th of January 2020 our team conducted a workshop on the topic of online activism.
Through real examples of the most successful campaigns, the young people had the chance to learn more about activism through the use of various forms of electronic communication technologies.
In the end, the young people had the opportunity to show in practice the gained knowledge, by planning two online campaigns on actual issues affecting our community.
This project is financed by the Erasmus+ program.
What does the new youth strategy mean to you?
This open discussion was an excellent opportunity for young people, who discussed how to successfully implement the Strategy, what changes this strategy brings, and how to better co-operate between youth and local authorities in the municipality of Tetovo.
This strategy, on the following four years, should enable young people to be satisfied with the quality of their life and to become a partner of the municipality in facing all challenges.
The activities of this project are supported by Mladiinfo through the project Youth Bank Hub Western Balkan and Turkey, which is financed by the European Union and implemented by 5 organizations from the region Mladiinfo from Macedonia, Fondacija Ana i Vlade Divac from Serbia, Nvo Prima from Montenegro, Partners Albania for Change and Development from Albania and Toplum Gönüllüleri Vakfı - TOG from Turkey.

Signed a new memorandum of cooperation
On the frames of our goal for national cooperation with other CSOs who operate in North Macedonia, today in Bitola, we signed a Memorandum of cooperation with the Youth Cultural Center of Bitola.
Also, this was a solemn event to initiate our new cooperation with YCC and synchronize our work for a bigger impact in the society.
Representatives present in the meetings had the opportunity to learn more about both the organizations and the areas where they excel in the community.
Building strong partnerships and cooperation is always a motive we strike to, since it means increasing the chances to contribute towards a more diverse and prosperous society, and also achieving to be closer to our vision and mission towards what we work every day.
International Day of people with disabilities
As we aim a more inclusive society everyday of our lives, we want to include people with special need more in our program and stimulate their participation in social life as general.
Today, we visited and had fun with the students of the special classes of the Elementary School “Lirija” Tetovo. The activities helped to blossom and shine so all the dreams these kids have, can come true.
Since there is no greater disability in society than the inability to see a person as more, we appeal to citizens to love each other and treat good their peers despite the diversity that exists among us.
