Amidst the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, EECMD continues to promote and develop democracy education in Georgia.
On April 22-23, 2020, the first trainings were held for the participants of Gori and Batumi Democracy Schools. Traditionally, the meetings were opened by the Executive Director of the EECMD, Levan Tsutskiridze, who also gave a lecture about the issues and importance of democracy.
Participants for the training program were selected based on a competition announced on our website and social networks, which consisted of two stages.
For the first time in 10 years, that schooling has started remotely, but the digital format has not slowed the organization down. The EECMD has transferred entirely into the online realm and is successfully adjusting to the existing reality.
The Democracy School is an intensive educational program for active citizens interested in contemporary politics, urban development, and democracy.
Over the past ten years, EECMD’s Democracy Schools count more than 700 alumni in 5 regions of Georgia.
This project is supported by the Embassy of the Netherlands in Georgia.
