09 Oct Agreement between IPMA and IPMA Serbia on the implementation of the IPMA Kids project in Serbia was signed
At the recently held Council of delegates from 71 national associations for project management within IPMA, in Seville, from September 23 to 24, 2023, an agreement was signed between IPMA and IPMA Serbia on the implementation of the IPMA Kids project in Serbia. This is a new IPMA project aimed at the youngest and is an informal learning program aimed at developing project management skills in children of different ages. The program is designed so that through workshops and games, knowledge is acquired, creativity and initiative are developed, curiosity is nurtured, and teamwork and communication are practiced. By signing this agreement, IPMA Serbia joined the group of over 20 national associations from project management within IPMA, which also expressed their desire to bring the basics of project thinking closer to the youngest through workshops and learning through play.
To successfully implement the IPMA Kids project globally, it is important to build a network of key partners, namely the national associations for project management within IPMA, which implement the project at the local level. The project is designed for schools, teachers, companies, institutions, and volunteers who want to work on popularizing project management among young people. The IPMA Kids project contributes to the fulfillment of IPMA’s vision to promote project management competencies at a global level in order to develop an environment in which all projects are successful. Through this and other IPMA projects, IPMA works on joint creation and uses the diversity of the IPMA global network in order to achieve benefits for the profession, the economy, society, and the environment. IPMA strongly believes that children should learn how to use project management, develop their flexibility, and use the potential they have in the agile world that surrounds us.
In the following period, IPMA Serbia will actively work on the development of a plan and the implementation of the IPMA Kids project in Serbia in order to create a stimulating environment for the development of competences in the field of project management from an early age through continuous interaction with the youngest.
