An invitation to the YIHR.hub launching event and celebration of Youth Initiative for Human Rights Birthday

Youth Initiative for Human Rights, with regard to its upcoming 11th birthday, officially launches the YIHR.hub – a new, free and exciting co-working space in the Zagreb city center that will be open for civil society organizations, informal initiatives, youth and everyone who wants to change the world!

As a part of the event, the Social Innovators project will be presented, together with a panel discussion focused on increasing the employability of youth with education in humanities and social sciences and popularizing seeking employment in civil society organizations. Youth Initiative for Human Rights will present its work at the reception “11 years of uncompromising struggle for human rights” and mark its 11th year of work.

The event will be held at Đorđićeva 8a (Zagreb), second floor, beginning at 16h.

The representatives of civil society organizations will be able to participate in a discussion about the planned activities of the Social Innovators project, tour the new YIHR.hub and discover ways to get involved. They will discuss how to empower NGOs, increase the employability of youth and develop their skills which will equip them to work in NGOs and alleviate the NGOs in terms of training new workers for the specific challenges of working in civil society organizations.
