Way of the Council Awareness Campaign

way of the council

From the 10th to the 14th of October, Inter Alia travelled to Epirus to the region of Arta and the surrounding areas for the Awareness Campaign of the “Way of the Council” project in local high schools. Inter Alia offered training sessions and discussed issues of democratic participation with the 1st and 2nd grade of the lyceums of Arta (2 sessions), Thesprotiko, Kompoti and Ano Kalentini.

Students were also introduced to the concept of the Youth Council and the potentials it can offer to young people and in specific to young people in countries and regions that their democratic institutions are severely struck by the Euro-crisis. Responsiveness to the initiative of Inter Alia to kick-start a youth council in the region was satisfactory. The next step is for students that volunteered for the creation of such council(s) to propose the structure, decision-making mechanisms and feasible 1st projects. Inter Alia is constantly supporting them with know-how and problem-solving support.
