No risk, no borders for young people

Drug Policy Network South East Europe (DPNSEE) together with the project partners Aksion Plus (Albania), Margina (Bosnia Herzegovina), Juventas (Montenegro), Prevent and Re Generation (Serbia) implement the project “No Risk, no borders for young people”. The project is supported by the Regional Youth Cooperation Office (RYCO) within its 4th Open Call and co-financed by the European Union.

The project directly addresses the following main issues/problems:

  • Present and increasing stigmatization of the marginalized youth groups targeted by the project – youth at risk (young people who use drugs, youth in conflict with the law and youth with alternative lifestyles and identities: sex workers, LGBTI population, young people in conflict with the law, and others), as also lack of the visibility and mutual understanding of their needs;
  • Lack of the regional youth cooperation on the issue of the targeted marginalized youth groups; and
  • Lack of the active youth participation and leadership in CSOs.

The project is strongly focused on youth at increased risk consisting of young people who use drugs, sex workers, LGBTI population, youth in conflict with the law and others addressed as “youth with alternative lifestyles and identities”.
