Round table in Zadar

Within the project “Promoting employability of young people on geographically isolated / remote islands” implemented by association DESA, in partnership with the Association for development of civil society and civil initiatives SVIMA, the Association for the sustainable development of the island of Rava, Crafts Education Institution and Electromechanical Engineering School Varaždin, round table on the employability of young people on geographically isolated and remote islands will be held on Tuesday, Dec. 2nd, at the premises of City Library Zadar. This round table will bring together representatives of relevant institutions and civil society organizations.

The experiences of the study tour and the conclusions of the roundtable held in Dubrovnik will be presented to the participants of the round table, as well as conducted research which was intended to determine how young people 16 to 35 years live on the Dalmatian islands, where they work or would like to work and what their plans for the future are. A short documentary movie “Message in a Bottle” will be presented to the participants too. In this movie young people share their experiences of life on the Dalmatian islands. The participants will discuss the issues of employability and lifelong learning opportunities for young people on the Dalmatian islands and they will have the opportunity to network with the purpose of improving advocacy at all levels.

The project “Promoting the employability of young people on geographically isolated / remote islands,” is co-financed by the European Union through the Operational Programme Human Resources Development, the scheme to grant “Support programs of civil society organizations in the field of advocacy and motivation for socially excluded groups.”
