The “Drive Democracy” project is implemented by Eastern European Centre for Multiparty Democracy (EECMD) with funding from The United States Agency for International Development and in partnership with the Economic Policy Research Centre (EPRC). The overall focus of the program is to empower and educate the Georgian voters to better understand, represent and advance their legitimate interests. This will be achieved by the innovative combination of merging capacity building of voters with policy dialogue between all regional and national stakeholders and reinforcing the process with citizen-led local projects to ensure accountability and responsiveness of elected officials in the five regions of Georgia: Tbilisi, Kakheti Shida-Kartli, Imereti and Adjara.
Open call for citizens interested in active citizenship, volunteerism, public policy and democracy in Telavi, Gori, Kutaisi, Batumi and Tbilisi have been announced. More information is available in Georgian.
“This activity is made possible by the generous support of the American people through the United States Agency for International Development (USAID).”
The project activities include intensive training courses, working on regional development roadmaps and participation in high level political dialogue meetings.
