  • June 9, 2021
The coordinator of the project “Creating life champions: Standing Together for Healthy and Safe Community”, Aleksandra Knezevic, met in Skopje with the official ambassador of the project and the captain of the Macedonian national team, Goran Pandev.

On that occasion, the ambassador of the project supported the realization of a regional camp for 200 children and football coaches of youth categories, which will take place in the period 24-27. June will be held in Zlatibor, Serbia, contributing to regional connections, cooperation, joint learning and socializing. He especially praised the fact that the organizer managed to provide free arrival, accommodation, equipment and accompanying sports-educational-entertaining contents for all participants, aware that not all children are always able to attend this type of activity.


In the continuation, there were talks about the possibilities for further expansion of opportunities for children and youth, and it was agreed to cooperate with the Pandev Academy, with the idea to jointly apply to available European and international funds aimed at supporting youth participation in sports and education through sports. “It is our obligation to make sport accessible to everyone, and at the same time to continuously strengthen its educational and pedagogical role,” Goran Pandev and Aleksandra Knezevic agreed during the conversation.

The representatives of the project wished good luck to both Pandev and the entire national team at the upcoming European Championship, hoping that the game will bring a lot of joy to the entire region, whose support will be undivided during all matches in the coming period.

The project “Standing Together for Healthy and Safe Community” is implemented through the ERASMUS + program in the field of sports. The coordinator is the Youth Development Center from Belgrade, and the consortium brings together partners from the youth, education and sports sectors from Serbia, Northern Macedonia, Croatia, Slovenia, Bosnia and Herzegovina and Turkey.
