With the support of the European Commission, the newly created Western Balkans Alumni Association (WBAA) will be organising its official kick-off event in Ohrid, Macedonia, on 22-24 March 2018. The event will gather over 300 higher education stakeholders, including students and alumni, Ministry representatives from the Western Balkans, university rectors and student unions, as well as EU officials and business representatives. The aim of WBAA is to establish a strong union of alumni coming from the Western Balkans in order to provide a forum which enables the exchange of information and good practices, contributes to evidence-gathering, promotes the Erasmus+ programme and other mobility opportunities, empowers young people and supports them in their pursuit towards successful employment. It should also foster policy-dialogue with local, national and regional authorities. More information is available here.
