We had a very interesting panel discussion with representatives from Croatia, Slovenia, Denmark and Ireland, around the topic of volunteering and the situation in our community. We tried to find better ways to support our young people who feel lonely, and also to improve our national system and policy.
We also discussed our good examples and practices and how volunteering can combat loneliness. We presented our Web-Campaign “The Voice of Youth” and the importance of youth participation.
During our stay, we had the opportunity to visit two organisations in Zagreb, who are working with many volunteers around the topic of mental health. Their good practices and ideas motivated and inspired us to continue our important job.
