In order to fulfil its commitment to strengthen the cohesion between its community members, young leaders, public servants, civil society activists, researchers, policy activists, students and professionals from all countries of the Western Balkans, EFB organized its first Community Meeting in Zagreb in the period between 11-14 of October, 2012.
The three days of excellent networking opportunities, helped to create links for future co-operation among the 100 Community members from all over the Balkans and the rest of Europe . They were all joined at the meeting which offered three days of stimulating discussions and the opportunity to share ideas with popular speakers about the current issues in Europe.
