In the conference for the first time took place the first face to face meeting of the representatives of all the active Municipal Youth Councils (Thessaloniki, Larissa, Pangaiou, Kavala) where, through public discussion and coordination of their actions, they exchanged good practices, experiences and concerns, confirming the need for further networking between Municipal Youth Councils.
It is important to mention the fact that in the context of Thermi's Youth Forum, a memorandum of cooperation was finalized with all youth councils agreeing on it.
The memorandum was formed by all the Youth Councils and is evidence of the efforts that our Council put into organizing the forum. Not only it because of us was the first time all Youth Councils were given the space to collaborate and coordinate but also because of the initiative we had taken since February by calling all the Youth Councils to joint meetings. Those meetings led to the finalization of our memorandum of cooperation.
At the same time, a public discussion was held with representatives of the student councils of the schools of the Municipality of Thermi, confirming the will of the Youth Council of the Municipality of Thermi to reactivate the student communities! Speeches to the conference were given by the Mayor of Thermi Theodoros Papadopoulos, the Deputy Mayor of Education Stylianos Apostolou, the director of educational and social policy of the Municipality of Thermi Chrysa Klimatsouda, the head of the municipal faction "Citizens' Intervention of Thermi Municipality" Anna Tsiftelidou, the general director of KEDE, Mr. Karagiannis Ioannis, the national expert on youth issues in the Directorate-General for Education, Culture and Youth of the European Commission Charalambos Papaioannou and the Director of EETAA Georgia Gonou.
