Democracy Leader Awards
In 2015 Eastern European Centre for Multiparty Democracy (EECMD) initiated the award of Democracy Leader.
Every year organization distinguishes among graduates of Democracy School and handles the Democracy Leader Award to a person who has shown an exceptional courage, determination and characteristic of a leader in strengthening and promoting democratic values, human rights and equality.
The Democracy Leader award was initiated as a show of support and recognition of local democracy activists who sometimes do less noticeable but consequential work in their communities, cities or at a national level.
By nominating each year’s democracy leader among Democracy School graduates, EECMD encourages them to be more active and use their knowledge and skills gained through Democracy School educational program and therefore contribute to strengthening principles of democracy in Georgia.
