Noored Ühiskonna Heaks (NYH) is promoting a call for participants for a Youth Exchange called “Democracy Lab No.1: Youth movement for democracy!” which will take place in 04th until 12th April 2014 in Struga, Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (Macedonia).
The main aim of the project is to provide an opportunity for young people to understand better the concept of democracy through analyzing different political systems and to spread that knowledge in order to make positive contribution in their communities. Thus, the project will involve youngsters from different backgrounds to share their ideas and opinions about the advantages and disadvantages of different political systems and by that, to put an accent on the importance of understanding the benefits and opportunities of living in a democratic society.
Therefore, through non-formal educational methods, such as role plays, open discussions, skills development workshops, etc., this project will enable participants to gain knowledge about the proposed political systems in order to realize the differences between them, which aims to better understanding of democracy as the most common political system used in the European countries.
The event will be held in English. There are 6 vacancies available and participants should have minimum 18 years old. There will be 30 young people from European Union and South East Europe involved in the event.
