The representatives from youth organisations and NGOs from Romania, Bulgaria and the Republic of Moldavia took part in the project development, representatives being experts in social, economical and legislative matters, interested in democratic development process of the society, after the eradication of the totalitarian and anachronistic principles, perpetuated by the former communist regimes. Each project partner will co-ordinate the activities developed in their own countries.

In the same time it will be an opportunity to make new contacts between the participants in order to adopt common actions for strengthening the involvement of the youth in solving the community problems. NGOs in Romania, Bulgaria and the Republic of Moldova have different levels of experience in this field.
