partners from Ukraine needed

Dear friends
A seminar organization about "Sustainable Development and Youht in Actions" between 7th ? 12th November 2006 in Bursa, the fourth biggest city of Turkey. The project (seminar) aims to put the young into the action in order to gain The Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) in a local perspective. The project helps to increase communication, cooperation and dialog among the young generation by establishment a discussion environment and network of local young groups.

Osmangazi Local Agenda 21 Youth Council pertains to the development and implementation of local sustainable development action plans with a long-term perspective, based upon a consultative process and effective partnership of local stakeholders. Osmangazi Local Agenda 21 Youth Council process entails the building of, and reaching a consensus on, a "sustainable community" vision, encompassing long-term, mid-term and short-term goals, and the subsequent preparation of local action plans.

Osmangazi Local Agenda 21 Youth Council is defined in the text endorsed by the Local Agenda 21 National Youth Parliament as "an institution established on the basis of voluntarism that seeks, within the framework of the multi-partner and multi-actor governance approach, the strengthening of horizontal relations between partners in local decisionmaking processes, the strengthening of democratic participation and structures, the enablement of the youth in sustainable development, and augmenting their active role in the management of cities and the improvement of living conditions"

The Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) are the world's time-bound and quantified targets for addressing extreme poverty in its many dimensions-income poverty, hunger, disease, lack of adequate shelter, and exclusion-while promoting gender equality, education, and environmental sustainability. They are also basic human rights-the rights of each person on the planet to health, education, shelter, and security.

We are planning this project to be financed by European Union Youht Program Support Activities (Action 5). The YOUTH programme is the EU's mobility and non-formal education programme targeting young people leaders, workers or volunteers. The Programme is open to youth in 31 European countries. The YOUTH programme offers possibilities to young people in the form of both "group exchanges" and "individual voluntary" work, as well as "support activities."
