Renewing Education Cooperation Project 2021


Dear international partners,
We are delighted to invite you on the weekend of 16-18 July 2021 to the premiere of our Renewing Education project results. The event will take place in Timisoara, Romania. 
The project has been made in a partnership between three international youth organisations, Forum mladih Naše stranke, Young Liberals Greece and USR Tineret with the patronship of LYMEC.
We hope you could join us in Timisoara and be part of our initiative. We do realize that these are still difficult times, as the coronavirus pandemic is still a genuine problem from all of us. Unfortunately, we will have limited spots for people to attend physically. We will, however, offer any other participants the possibility to attend the event online, as the whole event will be streamed live on ZOOM. 
Please register for the event at the following link before 2nd of July, 23:59 CEST

This tripartite initiative aims to provide decision makers across Balkan states with a list
of policy proposals on how to achieve a more liberal agenda on education. The project is mainly
focused on young people aged 14-34 who are undergoing high school or university studies, have
already graduated or are part of an ongoing learning process. Our project consists firstly of an
ample consultation phase where we aim to gather replies from at least 1,000 young persons in
the region. In the second phase of this project, the replies gathered will be discussed with experts
and in the final phase we will formulate a list of policy proposals which will be transmitted to
the Ministries of Education of the countries involved and to the members of Parliaments part of
Education Committees. Our project’s final outcome will be a list of at least 5 policy proposals
through which we want to liberalize education for young persons and further cooperation on this
topic in Europe. We also strive to push governments to give 6% of GDP for Education.

The organizers of this project, under the leadership of LYMEC - European Liberal Youth, are USR Tineret (Romania), Nasa Stranka Youth (Bosnia and Herzegovina) and Young Liberals Greece.
