FOURTH REGIONAL YOUTH LEADERSHIP FORUM

From 22th to 24th of November 2019. the fourth Regional Youth Leadership Forum (RYLF) will be held in Novi Sad. We are extremely honored that the Academy for Women has been selected to delegate participants to this very important event. As the Academy for Women has been implementing the project "Youth Political Literacy in BiH" since May 2019, supported by the Federal Government of Germany , three representatives of this project have been delegated to participate in the Forum on behalf of the Women's Academy.

The Regional Youth Leadership Forum (RYLF) is an annual conference that brings together around 200 young leaders and socially active people from the WB6 region who will be engaged in discussions with current policy makers and regional leaders on prominent topics and challenges. Over the years, RYLF has gradually but steadily grown into a meeting place for young and courageous, ambitious and relentless individuals who speak a language of reconciliation and goodwill.

The Regional Youth Leadership Forum is organized to encourage young people, free from the burdens of the past, to establish dialogue, a climate of reconciliation, to seek compromise, all with the aim of maintaining peace in the WB6 region.

Countless thought-provoking ideas have been discussed throughout past issues of RYLF, however the main objective remained clear - to bring together inspiring, ambitious individuals from different fields of work and study, and offer them an environment for discussion, networking and collaboration.

The Academy for Women is grateful for the invitation and the opportunity for our participants to contribute to the whole event.

Because we believe in the youth of Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Your Academy for Women.
