The YouthAdrinet final meeting, that will be held in Pula on the 16th-17th of December, is finally
approaching. It will offer the opportunity to present to all the partnership the last outputs produced by the project, but above all it will be the official occasion for discussing and deciding how to assure the follow up of the initiative.
Protagonists of the first day of the meeting will be youngsters coming from the partner territories: boys and girls who already took part to the Youth Adrinet workshops or to the ADRIBUS adventure, and who will be now involved in an interesting debate on youth policies with politicians. The first afternoon will be also the occasion to present the documentary video on ADRIBUS, that will be introduced and presented by the film Director Gaetano Vanzo.
The second day of the meeting will be above all the time of the official signatures of the “Memorandum of understanding” by all the politicians of the partner territories at the presence of a member of the Adriatic Ionian Euroregion. A highly official and symbolic moment, but most of all the concrete beginning of the Youth Adrinet follow up. Youth Adrinet has activated really strong and important social processes in all the partner territories, but they will be effective only if they will be supported and promoted after the end of the project itself.
