They "discussed and shared experiences and ideas on challenges facing the youth in their countries," the agency said.

A team comprised of trainers and experts from the ministries of youth from both countries assisted some 34 young people in their discussions on the topics of youth inclusion in the public and political life, youth policies, promotion of democratic values and fostering the cross-cultural dialogue and the role of the media in inter-cultural dialogue, as well as the issue of ways to challenge prejudice and stereotypes, a release by the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) states.

The Summer School is a result of the Memorandum of Understanding on Youth concluded by the Serbian and Albanian Prime Ministers with the idea to bring the youth of the two countries closer together.

This event was jointly organized by Serbia's Ministry of Sports and Youth and Albania's Social Welfare and Youth Ministry in co-operation with the National Youth Service of Serbia and supported by the OSCE Mission to Serbia and the OSCE Presence in Albania.
