The Network of universities, promoted by the North-South Centre of the Council of Europe in partnership with youth organizations and governmental institutions, aims to promote personal development through training as well as capacity building and co-ordination of youth organizations in global youth work. The Network aims to promote a more co-ordinated work between universities, thus promoting more visibility and sustainability of the partnership.
Participants were grouped in their various mother networks for the commencement of the training. In NIYOA, the training began with an overview of the formation of the network which included series of conferences and meetings held, challenges encountered and the way forward. Participants’ expectations were sort to enable the facilitators to repackage their presentation to meet them.
