The story of the School for Democracy 2017

The School for Democracy is an Expert Forum program that aims to create an innovative learning environment for teachers who want to discover alternative and effective tools for active education and involvement of young people.

The School for Democracy includes a training seminar, which took place in Brasov between 4 and 9 March 2017. In May and April we support the implementation of civic projects in the schools and communities from where the 18 teachers come from in the Republic of Moldova and Romania.

Among the themes we tackle include:

Non-formal learning methods
Fundamental concepts: Democracy and the rule of law, good governance, populism, clientelism, public participation, active citizenship
Public policies and advocacy mechanisms
Writing and implementing projects, dissemination of results and best practices

Day 1 – guided tour in Brasov / the teacher as a leader


Day 2 – nonformal education methods

Day 3 – why democracy fails / documentaries as teaching method / building the public agenda / fighting fake news

Day 4 – why rule of law matter / active citizenship and the engagement of citizens

Day 5-6 – sharing experience / developing action plans
