It “has a mission to empower young people in the Western Balkans and create new generations of decision-makers and opinion-dormers capable of bringing change … to encourage them to participate in essential discussions actively, amplify the youth perspective, and leverage their skills and experiences to analyze and address the most pressing challenges that young individuals in the region face today.” Adnan also presented them with some of the ESI’s research and advocacy methods.
