Youth of 15-25 years often lack confidence in democratic institutions and information on promotion of democratic principles in life. The aim of the project is to support active participation of youth in civic life and promotion of democratic values. The goal of the project is to initiate interest of youth at participation in civic life, support development of existing youth groups and support development of good governance on local level. The participants from 5 microregions will be trained at 6 trainings, aimed at active participation in civic life, support of civic activism and peer mediation in resolution of civic conflicts with accent at inter-ethnic relations. The youth group will afterwards lead informational and educational peer activities and create documentary movies reflecting their experience with local activism and participation in civic life. The project will support use of democratic principles on local level and will create an example of good practice on national level.
