Thus, on 7 February we will hold an exhibition of posters on occasion of the 30 years of ZOI 84. Unfortunately, Sarajevo bears the scars of the 20th century, but we want to send a message to the world that Sarajevo is entering the 21st century with a new idea of Sarajevo, and EYOWF 2017 is an excellent opportunity’’, he said.
