Of course :)!
My name is Marin, I am 24 and come from beautiful Croatia. I study Business and Economics.
I’m fresh in politics and believe in changes for better. Currently I am the envoy of a young group of my party.
Beyond your civic commitment, can you tell us what are your favorite activities / leisure activities ?
I’ve been very active in the biggest student union in my country. I have organized youth oriented projects about corruption, unemployment and many humanitarian activities. I have been granted with the Rector’s and the Dean’s award for my work.
I used to train rowing. I love long walks and running. I listen to R’n’B and Hip Hop music the most. I am a huge fan of Star trek and SF in general. I enjoy watching political series – Borgen and House of Cards are my favourite! I’m real foodie!
The elected team, widely renewed around Miroslava Calegari, is at work for almost 3 months now. Can you tell us the reasons for your involvement in the movement and your mission in this team?
I am honoured to be a member of this team. Together we can be the voice of this generation. Young people are not present enough in politics. We, young people, need to be more involved in the decision making process and our voice must be heard more clearly and that’s why I made a commitment to this team – I want to make a change!
Within the team, I work on projects and memberships & partnerships. I work on bringing in new members to YDE, finding new partners to work with, as well as different projects, mostly those involved with a burning Europe problem- youth unemployment.
Finally, according to you, what should be the priority for Europe and the YDE for these next 2 years?
The priority of Europe is strong economy, fighting youth and general unemployment, lowering inequality, and same civic rights for all. Europe must be strong at the international level and become more relevant globally.
YDE’s priority is to involve young people and make them participate and aware of these priorities, make sure they are heard and not ignored! Also, to connect the voice of young people to the authorities.
