Center for Democracy and Human Rights – CEDEM is implementing a project “Civic and Political Participation of Young People” with financial support by the Hanns Seidel Foundation.
In order to encourage active involvement in decision-making processes, policy making and their implementation in areas important for the lives of young people, and in order to improve knowledge and skills of young people on the ways of participating in decision-making processes and improving the knowledge about and dialogue of young people with the institutions, CEDEM will, in cooperation with the most relevant experts, along with the representatives of the executive power and the representatives of different embassies, hold the “Civic and Political Participation of Young People” Academy from 14th to 17th of December at the Bianca Hotel in Kolašin.
In addition to the lecturers, Ministers in the Government of Montenegro and representatives of different embassies will take part in the Academy. The participants will thus have the opportunity to discuss and ask questions to the Ministers related to their respective competences as well as to hear examples of good practice in relation to civic and political participation of young people through lectures and discussions with the ambassadors.
