Within the Kosovo Youth Participation – KYP project from 26th to 27th September, CARE Deutschland e.V. and SHL-Kosova conducted the first training on Capacity Building and Awareness Raising on Human Rights, Representation, Advocacy, Activism and Youth Mobilization.
Consultants, Kushtrim Palushi and Blerina Ramaj, trained youngsters from Rahovec (age 15 – 25) on: “Human rights, separation of powers and governance in Kosovo” and “Advocacy, Mobilization and Youth Activism”. The 2-day training aim was to increase the capacity of knowledge on human rights, representation, advocacy, and activism of youngsters from the eight target municipalities aiming at making positive changes in the community.
Moreover, during this training, the young participants were informed about human rights, democratic values, the importance of participation in the social process and decision-making process on all levels, as well as advocacy techniques. For a better understanding of the advocacy and importance of active citizenship, they learned the steps from some of the best civic practices and initiatives that have been taken in and out of the country.
This training will be conducted to the youngsters from eight target municipalities: Deçan/Dečani, Fushë Kosova/Kosovo Polje, Gjakova/Đakovica, Junik/Junik, Obiliq/Obilić, Peja/Peć, Rahovec/Orahovac and Suharekë/Suva Reka.
This activity is organized within the framework of the Kosovo Youth Participation – KYP project with the financial support of the European Union office in Kosovo.
