The CDRSEE was honored to play a key role in an international youth conference that marked Croatia’s accession to the European Union. Board Chairman, Dr. Erhard Busek, took part in the panel discussion “Europe for the young: Building reliable roadmaps”, the principal activity of the Zagreb conference.
The conference, organized by Klub Alpbach Hrvatska (http://www.kah.hr/cro/eng/) took place from June 27 to 29 and was entitled “Europe joins Croatia”. It was an event organized by youth, for the youth, celebrating and promoting young people’s contributions to the EU. Dr. Busek was a panelist together with Doris Pack, Ivan Krastev and Dejan Jovic in a lively and productive discussion at the Museum of Contemporary Art. CDRSEE Executive Director Nenad Sebek was also on hand, leading a workshop on moderating panel discussions as well as a more informal chat among participants, entitled “European Union and its youth – a success story?”
The conference was a huge success, also including a public speaking competition, a workshop of public advocacy, a photo exhibition, the presentation of a documentary and many other activities that promoted the active and positive participation of young people in the European Union.
Bravo for our young friends at KAH!
