General Information: 

UNIVERSI is non-governmental, non-profit voluntary organization that was established in Slovenia in 2010 with the purpose to bring together young people that believe in cross-European co-operation and intercultural experience, and that are wishing to get more experience in this field through developing projects in the frames of various European Programmes working on raising youth awareness, citizenship, international mobility and participation of young people at international level.

Mission and Objectives: 

In UNIVERSI we follow the philosophy that can be expressed in: “non-formal education”, “life-long learning”, “mobility”, “volunteering” and “cooperation”. We strongly believe in the role of non-formal education within life-long learning and that the active participation of young people can empower them their friends and the society around them.
Our main aim is to give youth possibilities for creative development, spreading of European culture in the field of international Youth Exchanges, European Volunteer Service, promotion of realisation of cultural, art and sport projects, spreading information about and for youth. We like to exchange different tools and methodologies that we can put into practice in our activities related to education and culture.

Main Projects / Activities: 

The regular activities of UNIVERSI aim at supporting our philosophy and promoting European values. The activities include various meetings at local and international level, exchanges, trainings, seminars, debates, exhibitions, concerts, fair stands, sport activities and so on. Many of these activities have the financial support from the European Commission’s programs. During our activities we are dealing with topics, e.g. European citizenship, civic participation, eco-citizenship, art, urban culture, media etc. and the projects that we are working on aim at promoting participation and empowering young-adult people with fewer opportunities aged between 18 and 30 years who do not have any special educational background, who have difficult social, economical or family situation, who have never had the opportunity to be abroad and benefit from intercultural experience.

How can you contribute to the Network in your country?: 

We are going to contribute in shaping the work of the ALF National Network in a competent and knowledgeable way. At the same time w will share our know-how and experiences, mainly our project leading and management skills to other organizations in the national network.

Why do you want to join the ALF Network?: 

We would like to be part of ALF Network as we share the same values: acceptance of pluralism and cultural diversity, mutual respect between societies, religions and beliefs, acknowledgment of rule of law and fundamental freedoms. Being part of the Network at the same time also means a way to network between organizations, to strengthening the cooperation between organisations of the Euro-Mediterranean region. We would also like to take advantage of being an ALF member - apply for a grant or other ALF activities. It will be also an opportunity for us, to share ideas and interact with members of our network.
