Humans of the Balkans

Inspired by the well-known Humans of New York, the Humans of the Balkans (HoB) team will be bringing the audiences in the region a regular dose of positivity, empathy, and humanity. Humans of the Balkans will function as an online platform showcasing photo, text and video stories of people living in Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo, Macedonia, Montenegro and Serbia, by showcasing their stories in text, photo and video format. The project seeks to change the attitude of people living in the Western Balkans when thinking of one another, and the diversity of nationalities, cultures, languages or religions represented by sharing the positive narratives that exist. HoB will focus on measuring impact by tracking online statistics including website visits, time spent on different stories and qualitative and quantitative social media engagement.
