The conference started with the introduction and opening remarks of the representatives of FEPS, FMS and IDSP. The focus was on the idea of conducting such a conference and the lack of useful researches and analytical materials in the context of study the involvement of the youth in political processes.
Also the co-organisers pointed out about the necessity to share the best practices between different countries and organisations in the way how to attract young people to be politically active. The situation in different European countries with the youth is similar with the situation in EaP countries. The presence and participation in the conference of more than 15 foreign guests and experts was a good indicator of the relevance and interest of the topic.
