In Bosnia and Herzegovina, the EFF provides trainings that are based on the joint declaration of the 4 EPP observer member parties and 1 like minded party. These parties are SDA, HDZBiH, PDP, HDZ 1990 and SDS. In the past years, Bosnia and Herzegovina has seen very little progress and its population has turned pessimistic. By bringing together youth from five different political parties, the EFF wants to offer encouragement and contribute to mutual understanding by means of a practical training simulation and the exchange of knowledge. The trainings include coalition building, local government and economy and employment. Since 2014 the EFF has a new partner for Bosnia and Herzegovina: the Center for New Initiatives (CNI).
