Three volunteers from the Youth European Society Association took part in a Videmocracy training course in Tirana, Albania, between June 7th and June 14th.
The main purpose of the course was to introduce young people to democracy, civil society and various methods by which democracy can be depicted – through simulations, videos, paintings, games, etc. The methods that have been used have given and will enable young people in the future to develop their capacity and critical thinking in the society in which they live. The participants were from Albania (host), Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo, Northern Macedonia, Serbia and Turkey.
During each training day, the youngsters were able to share their ideas that were related to the project theme as well as many of them related to their future development as regards the better development of democracy in each country. Last but not least – the Bulgarian youths managed to create many multinational friendships and enriched their multicultural knowledge.
The project is co-funded under the Erasmus + program of the European Commission.
