Students and representatives of the student parliaments from the primary and secondary project schools throughout the country participated in online workshops through digital platforms, during which they designed youth actions in their communities. The workshops are organized as a part of the USAID Youth Ethnic Integration Project, in collaboration with Youth Educational Forum.
The participants analyzed ideas and discussed the issues in their surroundings together. They mapped the youth interests in their municipalities and suggested ways for improving the condition and beautifying the surroundings. At the same time, even though they hung out online, they met each other better, exchanging interesting and useful ideas.
A summer cinema in the open, an increased ecological awareness and more public recreational spaces are just a part of their ideas, which they plan to implement during the youth actions. In the following period, they will continue to think of possible solutions to the challenges in their surroundings that they face as young people.
By creating online opportunities for the students to socialize and cooperate on various civic initiatives even during the crisis situation, the USAID Youth Ethnic Integration Project fosters democratic climate and positive interactions among the young people from different ethnic communities.
This activity is part of the Youth Ethnic Integration Project, funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID).
