The Institute for Youth Development KULT and the Educational-Leisure Centre SPAJALICA organised a second â€śCoffee Withâ€¦â€ť professor Damir Marjanovi? â€“ former Education, Science and Youth Minister of Canton Sarajevo â€“ within the frame of the critical thinking with youth on politics and youth in politics empowerment with the aim to increase youth electorate.
â€žOur duty is not to tell youth what they should do, but to tell them to start thinking. Unfortunately, we are creating a so-called â€śParrot Generationâ€ť, and then fall for the wise students who memorise a couple of professorâ€™s phrases and repeat our words. This happens because the professors like hearing their words repeated. That kind of self-centredness does not cost us much. Todayâ€™s students need to be encouraged to think and use information and if they did not judge someone on the basis of their words but their deeds, things would be a little different. This would breed creativity contest among youthâ€ť, stated professor Damir Marjanovi? at SPAJALICA.
An inspirational dialogue and the â€śCoffee Withâ€ť time spent with professor Damir Marjanovi? had a pleasant atmosphere, especially for the presence of the educational sector representatives heating up the working atmosphere at SPAJALICA, in addition to young people present.
