On the first day of RTNF, over 70 representatives of civil sector and youth from Western Balkans and Turkey had the opportunity to gain knowledge on new possibilities for cooperation among different actors in the region, but also to participate in simulation of joined activities for integration in the EU on the regional level.

The Forum was opened by Arbjan Mazniku, Deputy Mayor of Tirana, Sokol Dedja, Deputy Minister of European and International Affairs from Albania, and Antonella Valmorbida, Secretary General of ALDA. During the opening remarks, it was emphasized that the recognition of joined similarities and overbridging the differences is very important for the progress of the Western Balkans.
