About our network

Short history

The idea to establish the sub-regional network of Red Cross young volunteers was appeared during European Co-operation Meeting in 2003. Then it turned into reality in 2005 at Regional Youth Forum in Minsk. To foster co-operation the Regional Co-ordination Council (RCC) was elected by young leaders from three National Societies of the sub-region.

The Regional Co-ordination Council

RCC is consisted of 3 representatives from each participating National Society making up nine in total. Usually RCC serves during one year between Regional Youth Forums. The first RCC was established in February 2006 in Minsk, the second and current one was elected in November of the same year in Kiev.

But we always welcome guests from abroad representatives from International Federation of RCRC, International Committee of RC as well as from Danish, Italian, Russian, Turkmenistan and Latvian National Societies already took part in three past forums.

Coming soon

Youth contribution to local communities development will be the main theme of presentations and discussions during the event. As expected the experience presented helps develop new initiatives and joint campaigns for 2008.
