Bijeljina becomes a Great Place to Live – supported by the Agenda 2030
The city of Bijeljina faces the challenge of brain drain of young adults after their studies. To encounter this brain drain, we work together with young citizens on their ideas of their city and on how to encourage them to stay in Bijeljina and to live from their work. Supported by the application of the Agenda 2030 we develop together concrete ideas and involve decision makers of the city government to make chosen ideas reality. Bijeljina will become a Great Place to Live.
Objectives and results
The objective is to come to conclusions based on a developed set of ideas on how to encourage young people to stay in Bijeljina and live from their work. Supported by the application of the Agenda 2030 Bijeljina will become a Great Place to Live.
Results of the project are
- Conclusions on two to five ideas for making Bijeljina a Great Place to Live which might be realised by the city on a short/medium/long term perspective.
- These ideas will be chosen out of a set of ideas which will be developed together with the target groups (young people), experts (from the city government/administration, consultancy by project applicant) and the NGOs, by using the Agenda 2030 (above all the SDGs we focus on) as a tool.
- “Side-effect” results: (1) network of young persons who are interested in shaping and designing their city with their ideas and (2) better knowledge of the city government about the ideas and needs of young people.
