Youth Group of ORC Tuzla


sELECT EU

In the period from May 10 to 12, an event entitled "sELECT EU" was held in Belgrade, where young people had the opportunity to get acquainted with the democratic procedures of the European Union. Through various workshops and simulations, together with more than 300 peers from BiH, Macedonia, Serbia and Slovenia, they had the opportunity to discuss the importance of EU policies on the lives of young people and the importance of young people's participation in electoral processes.

"Lack of interest in politics" is often cited as the main reason for the low participation of young people in electoral processes. Young people consider that through political and democratic processes they cannot participate in shaping their lives and leave this job to others. However, as the life of young people would not be the result of someone else's vision, but the result of their needs, it is necessary for young people to strengthen their participation in the formation of the EU. European elections are a period when Europeans are most interested in all the benefits that citizens of the Union have. Topics and debates about Europe have been opened and now, most of all across the continent, is debating the question "Why do we need Europe? “

Representatives of ORC Tuzla, Kenan Suljić and Benjamin Burek, took part in this event.
