On July 7, nine young people aged 15 to 25 tested innovative training instruments for overcoming anti-democratic sentiment among disadvantaged young people and learning about the principles of democracy, tolerance and fundamental human rights through play.
The young people drew the animal of democracy and in this way showed and told what democracy is for them:
They discussed the main features of a democratic state. They then presented in drawings and guessed the basic human rights according to the United Nations Declaration of Human Rights. They also discussed with interest the functions of the various institutions in the country, as well as the political parties.
The young people shared that the way the information was presented was extremely pleasant and fun for them and provoked them to think and learn things on a topic that until recently seemed boring or distant.
The training methods and materials were created under the Reach Youth
