Project 2009

Aim of the project
The main aim of the project is to develop a concept for a new project together with the youth of the bigger societal groups in Kosovo which carries the idea of reconciliation on to a bigger target group and possibly could give the youth a chance to meet during the whole year to sustainably overcome existing conflicts. Thereby Jugend für Zukunft will be very responsive to the needs, wants and desires of the kosovarian youth. To this end Jugend für Zukunft will host a conference in August this year in which shall be worked out together which shape such a project could have. To this conference other organisations will be invited who are dedicating there work to the kosovarian youth to achieve synergies within the commitment for a sustainable development in Kosovo.

Implementation: The plans and/or project/-s worked out in the conference shall become a real project after the stage of composition. As it is probably not possible to implement the project in summer 2009 the plans could also serve as a basis for a project 2010.
