Global Forum for Marginalized Youth to be held in Mitrovicë / Kosovska Mitrovica

FCT Director Padraig O’Malley Signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Petrit Selimi, Kosovo’s Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs in Prishtina Kosovo on 14 October 2015. The MOU commits the Kosovo MFA to a cooperative collaboration with the Forum for Cities in Transition (FCT) with a view to establishing a Global Forum for Marginalized Youth (GFMY), in Mitrovicë / Kosovska Mitrovica.

The forum will meet every year in Mitrovicë / Kosovska Mitrovica where disenfranchised & permanently unemployed/underemployed youth from across the globe will gather annually to discuss their rights, collective values & discuss ways in which their lives can be given dignity & meaning, making them part of a cause greater than themselves & find innovative ways to improve the conditions in which they live. The founding conference will be held in 2016 at a date to be determined.
