Maty Mihaľko


Vienna, Austria/Bratislava, Slovakia


I am currently working as a project coordinator and communication officer in YouthWatch, organisation that monitors trends in lives of young people, innovations in youth work and education, supports the engagement of young people and influences youth policy. I got into nonformal education and youth work through my own participation in various programmes and many trainings aimed at developing skills. In 2017, I became a youth delegate from the Slovak Republic to the Congress of Local and Regional Authorities of the Council of Europe in Strasbourg. I have been cooperating with YouthWatch since 2020 on innovative projects which combine trends of young people and Futures Literacy. My motivation to apply for Danube Youth Council is to bring my knowledge of youth trends and innovative youth work to strengthen the role of young people in the Danube region.
