On 30 December in Youth office in Belgrade Milena Milićević from The Faculty of Engineering Management held a lecture where she shared her impressions from One Young World Summit (OYW) in Johannesburg where she represented Serbia in October 2013. She explained to the motivated people, students and young professionals, in which international projects they can take part.

The international Summit ''One Young World'' was initiated by Kate Robertson and David Jones, working at media agency Havas so that young people, aged 18-30 get engaged in projects and start developing their leadership skills and international communication. Summit One Young World is because of the quality of young delegates and councellors conceptualized like ’’Davos for 25-year olds.’’ During OYW prominent councellors worked with delegates, including Richard Branson, Nobel Laureatte Mohammed Yunus, Arianna Huffington, Bob Geldof, Kofi Annan, Boris Becker, Jamie Oliver and other people.

In her lecture, Milena Milićević introduced global initiatives and knowledge that she obtained in the following fields: fundraising, community organizing, gender equality and health protection for youth, entrepreneurship, sustainable development, travels for youth and media. Moreover, Milena thanked to her friends who helped her go to Summit due to Indiegogo campaign and to companies which donated money for her endeavour: EXIT Foundation, Telekom Serbia, Elektrovojvodina and Infostud.

In 2014 we should expect lectures about entrepreneurship, sustainable development and gender equality from Milena and her team so that we encourage initiatives of young people in Serbia and that we become part of regional and global projects within the organization ''One Young World.''
