The Turkish Ministry of Youth & Sports invited Global Attitude to take part in their workshop in Ankara on 8-9 December 2012. The aim of the workshop was to observe and analyze the structures of various Youth Organizations in different countries. As the Turkish Ministry of Youth & Sport intends to give Youth NGO’s a platform in order to increase their decision-making capacity and to better coordinate common positions, the plan is to create an umbrella organization for Turkish Youth NGO’s.
For this purpose several Turkish and other Youth Organizations from various European countries such as Norway, Denmark, France, Germany, Sweden and Finland were invited. The representative of these organizations provided the Organizers with insights of their country’s policies in regards to youth organizations.
Lorenz Insam – European Development Coordinator at Global Attitude – represented our organization explaining our structure and outlining our activities focusing mainly on our transnational engagement. After the morning session where numerous youth NGO’s were introduced, the 50 participants were divided to work in three roundtables.
During the working session the participants outlined their ideas and opinions on the guidelines of a possible umbrella organizations emphasizing the independency – financially and politically. Furthermore potential structures and the vision of this organization were brought up were the non-Turkish participants introduced models of their countries of origin. The final proposals of the roundtables were subsequently presented in the plenary session. These are now being reviewed and consequently presented to the Turkish Government.
