This Thursday, Commissioner for Education, Culture, Youth and Sport, Tibor Navracsics, will attend events in Verona, Italy and Ljubljana, Slovenia. In Verona, he will speak at the launch of the 16th edition of the Tocatì Festival – the International Festival of Games in the Streets.

The festival, which coincides with the European Year of Cultural Heritage, helps to promote traditional games and sports. Later in the day, the Commissioner will hold a Citizens’ Dialogue in Ljubljana, which is part of a full day conference entirely devoted to youth, youth work, youth employment and the active participation of youth in society.

The event will bring together several NGOs involved in youth work from Slovenia who have led projects, backed by EU funds, to help young people gain skills, enter the labour market, open their own business and to make their voice heard.

Live web streaming is available with interpretation from Slovenian into English.

More details on the Dialogue, including registration, are available online(For more information: Nathalie Vandystadt – Tel.: +32 229 67083 and Joseph Waldstein – Tel.: +32 229 56184).
