1.9 Current debates and reforms

In 2018 the public hearing about the National Youth Strategy’s Action Plan 2018-2020 was conducted, and later on it was adopted. In this period, the realization of youth activities related to several areas, such as employment and entrepreneurship, education, upbringing and training, activism and active participation, health and well-being, safety, social inclusion, mobility, information and culture and creativity of young people are planned. The Action Plan will be implemented at the national, provincial and local levels.

Total funds for its implementation amount to RSD 15,201 billion. More precisely, RSD 13 billion are provided from the state budget, while RSD 2,195 billion are provided from other sources - IPA funds, the private sector, associations that conduct youth activities and other national and international programs and donors.

Through the Regional Youth Cooperation Office (RYCO), Serbia aims to help reform financing of youth mobility by supporting different projects in the field of youth. In order to achieve that, RYCO so far has published two open calls. Under the last Call for Proposals, RYCO intended to support civil society organizations and secondary schools to implement activities in the areas of regional youth cooperation, mobility and exchange, and enabling environment for regional youth cooperation.
