The Municipal Councils of Prilep, Kavadarci, Gevgelija, Radovis, Tetovo and Ilinden last year adopted the local youth strategies, while it is expected this year municipalities of Bitola, Sveti Nikole, Stip and Kisela Voda to follow their steps.
The project encompasses activities for determination of the needs and possible solutions which should compose the content of the local youth strategies, i.e. the priorities of the young people, in each municipality individually, and the possible solutions as well. Through surveys, interviews and discussions, with young people aged 15 - 29, the project for creation of local youth strategies has shown that the priority problems of the youth from all the municipalities are the unemployment and the weak sport and cultural offer in the cities. Part of the youth in different municipalities emphasized the deviant appearances, weak youth activities and lack of informal education as priority youth problems.
“In order to meet the needs of the young people it is significant to have coordination among the local institutions, which is the aim of adoption of local youth strategy in a municipality”, says from the Coalition of youth organizations SEGA, which are continuing to implement this project in the other cities from Macedonia.
