Who is the “Development Centre of the Heart of Slovenia” (HS)?
The “Development Centre of the Heart of Slovenia” connects local authorities in central Slovenia. We are well-known as a qualified development partner, particularly in the field of rural tourism and entrepreneurship, and have good connections with youth organizations in our area.
What is your job within the EUth-project?
In Italy and Slovenia a cross-border pilot project aims at initiating young community managers, who will then implement new – youth-relevant - policies in co-operation with their local administrations. HS coordinates this pilot project from the Slovenian side. Apart from our useful network of local youth organizations and municipalities, we contribute with our experience in organizing workshops and participatory events.
Youth participation is important, because...
