- Oenef- Association of active youths of Florina
The efficient and correct function of the norms and grades of the elected, regional and peripheral local government is a fundamental prerequisite for the correct function of a democratic society that everybody wishes. The problems that young people face today in every aspect of their social and professional level are intense and various. Therefore, the regions and their norms should further contribute into the support of young citizens. Consequently, young people should and must be more active participants.
OENEF was founded because of the need for active participation of the youth in public and for further contribution in sociological, cultural and environmental issues. Furthermore OENEF has the ambition to push young people into activities through dialogue, consideration and exchange of ideas as well as finding solutions and suggestions to issues that concern our society. OENEF’s ultimate aim is the real enhancement of the norms that already exist.
