Aleksandar Dragicevic Zivojina Misica 37 Banja Luka 065/691-223 Education: Pupil in Banja Luka gymnasium I am currently working on project #Youth conference” and “Young people for young people”, also I am planning project “Days of Esperanto in Banja Luka”. I have participated in program of American embassy in Sarajevo, Youth Leadership which includes trip to USA for one month and workshops on leadership, democracy and youth activism. I have been volunteering on international festival of short movie. I think young people in B&H don’t have enough motivation for activities. But conditions are getting better every year. This country don’t have much to offer young people so young people must find other ways for motivation. Situation is improving and will keep improving and I want to part of that improvement.

Also big problem is unemployment. May young people have ideas and will to do something but in most cases they don’t have support.

Asmir Agic G. Lukavica-Zivinice 061/954 – 519 I am currently board president of student Association on economy faculty in Tuzla, also I am president of assembly for student union in university Tuzla. I was also president of youth association in Gornja Lukavica when I was only 15. I have participated on many seminars and trainings.

Emir Delalic Strajka Mitrovica 3, 75000 Tuzla 061 496 497 Have many years of experience in youth sector. I have been working in Youth Center Tuzla and participated on many seminars and workshops in B&H and abroad. Youth sector in B&H is in very bad shape, certain step must be done if we want to improve it. There are no laws which could open new possibilities for young people. Many towns don’t do anything in order to help young people. Because of this situation young people are not interested and have tendency to do bad things. Only if we act together we can improve certain things, so it is imperative for young people to be active and give their contribution.
