The POINT conference marks the 10th year – let’s round it together!

We made it to our first double-digit! Our joint persistence made 10 years of our existence. It is indeed an amazing feeling to keep seeing dedicated, hardworking young people who are pioneers in this field and are constantly innovating and using technology and other means to inspire and achieve change! Unique ideas, inspiring stories, positive energy and courageous young people are the reason for this success – and that is how we want to enter the new decade of POINT!  

This year, the conference will be held on June 2nd and 3rd, at Sarajevo’s Dom mladih.
