Students of the High School of Graphic Technologies, Design and Multimedia attended a workshop on topic “Processes and Actors in the Political System” instead of attending the usual Democracy and Human Rights class. The Institute for Youth Development KULT in collaboration with the Municipality of IlidĹľa, through activities from Youth Strategy, held the workshop aiming to introduce the students with important topics about which they usually do not have the opportunity to listen. According to Selma Suljevi? from the Institute for Youth Development KULT, the students are introduced with the elections system in Bosnia and Herzegovina. “We discussed elections, general and local, which are held in our country. Through interaction with the students, we discussed the actors that are involved in the elections and their role” – says Selma Suljevi? from the Institute for Youth Development KULT. She adds that the students, after the short lecture, personally experienced the different roles of actors in the election process. “Having heard the general information, the students were divided into 3 groups. The first group was the political parties, the second represented the civil society, and the third was the media. Thus, through a practical simulation, they learned a lot” – concluded Selma Suljevi?.
The aim of the held workshop was to indicate to youth to the decission-making process in the BiH institutions and thus help them with involving themselves in social trends. All for the purpose of turning them into active members of the civil society.
