Student Election Reporting and Local Elections Academy Workshop

Student Election Reporting and Local Elections Academy Workshop

At their third and final workshop in Sarajevo, 30 university students from all over the country learned  the basics of political journalism and practiced reporting on elections through traditional and new media.  They also developed an action plan for recruiting new members  to share the knowledge they gained at the workshop so that they can increase civic engagement among young people and jointly advocate for youth issues in their local communities.  The participants also plan to participate in election monitoring during the October 1st elections.  CIVITAS Sarajevo organized the program with support from an ESF-Civic Education grant.
