Belgrade – The closing ceremony for the Empowered Youth for Positive Changes in South Serbia and Sandžak project was held today at Cultural Center Grad. For the past two years, this project was implemented by Civic Initiatives and supported by USAID. Project results were presented, and further steps which will be taken to build the capacity of civil society in Serbia were announced.

˝It is very important to recognize the strength of young and active citizens of this society. I believe that Civic Initiatives and USAID have managed to recognize their real potential and additionally encourage and empower them to be even more active. However, this must not be the end – our goal is to further empower civil society in Serbia, its growth, development and partnerships with other institutions. We can be the engine of development for society only if we are united,” said Maja Stojanovic, Executive Director at Civic Initiatives.
