Political leadership of the future

The Club for Youth Issues and Policies within the Macedonian Assembly was established in 2017 and is commonly known as the Club of Young MPs. It was one of the bodies that were actively involved in drafting the Law on Youth Participation and Policies.

In that context, the upcoming event will focus on informing the public, particularly young people, about the activities and the role of the Club, as well as on discussing the priorities and goals of the Club in the upcoming period together with young people.

The following questions will be discussed: How can the situation around COVID-19 be utilised to strengthen the participation of young people in political processes? What are the main priorities of the Club for the next 3,5 years? How does the Club maintain contacts with and collect information about key stakeholders (youth organisations and institutions)?

The following speakers will participate in the event:

Bojan Petrovski, President of the National Youth Council of Macedonia

Artina Qazimi, Member of Parliament (Alliance for Albanians)

Monika Zajkova, Member of Parliament (Liberal Democratic Party)

Safije Sadiki Shaini, Member of Parliament (Alternativa)

Fisnike Bekteshi Shaqiri, Member of Parliament (DUI)

Darko Kaevski, Member of Parliament (SDSM)

Timco Mucunski, Member of Parliament (VMRO-DPMNE)

The event will be opened by Daniel Braun, Official Representative of the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung, and Jovan Jauleski, MP and Coordinator of the Club for Youth Affairs and Policies.

The conference will be moderated by Ivan Jovanov, Executive Director of ‎Leaders for Education, Activism and Development (LEAD).
