On the 21st of June, GFSIS held a graduation ceremony of the educational program Youth for Changes in Batumi. Project alumni represent the youth wings of political parties, NGO, and the media sector. In the framework of the program, training alumni attended lectures on nationwide issues and practical capacity-building seminars. Participants represented Batumi as well as Mountainous Adjara, namely Khulo and Ghorjomi.
Youth for changes encourages participants for carrying out constructive dialogue on disputed issues and elevate the political discourse. Engagement of the young people in the capacity-building activities and hot issue discussions makes them part of the policy processes and strengthens their analytical and policy elaboration skills. Participants gained specific knowledge on political ideologies, policy analysis, advocacy, mass media and communication, ethnic and gender politics, IR, national security, and more.
