Hacking policy issues in Albania and Serbia

19 February 2019

Sixteen participation hackers gathered in Tirana on January 24, to discuss issues of concern to youth in Albania and Serbia as part of the HPiB Project funded by RYCO. The participants worked online through the digital mobility platform to prepare the first drafts of their policy hacks and had the chance to work together all Thursday on issues regarding the funding of higher education in Albania and Serbia, digital security for teens, decrease of discrimination for Roma pupils in Novi Pazar, Serbia, and Tirana, Albania, and the need for increase number of psychologists n state-run high schools in Tirana.

This was the final event of our project Hacking Participation in the Balkans – Innovative ways of empowering Balkans youth to impact policy-making processes – (HPiB) is a project financed by Regional Youth Cooperation Office (RYCO) in the first call for proposals “A better region starts with youth” under priority area 2: Active participation and social inclusion.
