Closing event of the “No risk, no borders” project

Closing event of the “No risk, no borders for young people” project was held on 22 October 2021. Our generous host, like many times before, was the Office for Combating Drugs of the Government of the Republic of Serbia.

Mr Milan Pekić, Director of the Office, welcomed participants expressing his satisfaction with the level of cooperation they have with the civil society organisations working on the issue of drug policy. He proposed that the results of the project should be widely promoted, especially fighting stigma and discrimination of people who use drugs.

Mrs Snežana Žugić, Assistant Minister for Youth and Sport informed that the National Youth Strategy 2015-2025 includes provisions for youth at risk which links the project with the Strategy. She emphasized that improving current and designing new programs for vulnerable groups may contribute to their involvement in the community, including education, employment, etc.

Young members of the Project Team presented activities and results of the project. We hope that it will bring sustainable results in supporting youth at risk and be a basis for long-term cooperation with the Regional Youth Cooperation Office.
