EKSI 25 Training on Youth Rights and Social Participation in Eskisehir, Turkey
Back in February 2020, EKSI 25 organised a training on democratic rights, legal means and social participation mechanism.
Specifically, it was dedicated to voluntary students with the objective to raise young people’s awareness on the government structure, civil rights, legal recourse mechanisms, and the various forms of participation in social life. As an active youth advocacy NGO, EKSI 25 has contributed a lot in creating, implementing and adapting Partibridges modules to the local context.
A lot of positive feedback was received from the young people who participated to this voluntary training. Through interactive activities such as group discussion, case studies and fun games, they were stimulated to think critically on the concept of citizenship, to be aware of their rights, to understand their capacities and how to contribute to the society.
The training also adopted an inclusive approach where youths from diverse backgrounds and status (e.g. immigrants, refugees) were welcomed to join in.
