Young people from the Western Balkans
Meet six young inspiring Europeans who fight for human rights, paint walls to pass important messages, raise awareness about online hate, jump over the highest bars… Meet them in the heart of Europe, the Western Balkans. Find out how they realise their dreams and do what they love and care about. With their talent, determination and commitment to European values, they are making a difference.
Within the European Year of Youth, the fourth edition of the “Europeans Making a Difference” campaign portrays young people from the Western Balkans who do things that matter, in the region and far beyond.
As HRVP Josep Borrell said: “This campaign gives a platform to people who move boundaries, who inspire and open doors for others. In our work we come across 'Europeans who make a difference' every day. With this campaign, we want to highlight their stories not just because they are good, genuine human stories. But also because their stories are not known enough in our EU Member States, and not visible enough in the Western Balkans either.”
