It will also promote the concept of voluntarism mainly among young people and local/regional NGOs and contribute to creation of good environment for involvement of young people into civil society in order to mobilize the existing potential and ensure the continuity of active citizenship.

Peer to peer couching meetings will create space for group meetings of NGO leaders devoted to actual topics (cross-sectoral cooperation, involvement of young people, hate speech and human rights agenda). Cross-sectoral lunch seminars will create a discussion platform on similar topics for participants from NGOs, local self-governments, businesses and public sector. Portal of volunteer cooperation will create platform for connecting the offer with the demand – volunteers with NGOs.
