Meeting of the cluster ACTIVE CITIZENSHIP

Constanta, 15th and 16th Oct 2012

16 students, 8 teachers and 4 principals from 4 schools (see below) attended that meeting. The aim was to find a common project frame according to Active Citizenship with regional dimension as well as to create structures of cooperation and communication for working out project outputs in their home countries after the meeting.
The students designed concepts for Active Citizenship refering to several articles of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. The participants presented their ideas for the practice to achieve that aim.
Further activities and inputs were: Examples for Active Citizenship (presented by guests who spoke from their life experience or came as representatives from local NGOs or associations), mixed media information (presented by students and teachers about their home countries), media information (presented by the editorial team).

Following schools took part: Mihail Sadoveanu High School (Calarasi, Republic of Moldova), High School Centre (Pale, Bosnia and Herzegovina), JU Srednja mješovita škola “17. septembar” (Žabljak, Montenegro) and LICEUL “George Calinescu” (Constanta, Romania).

EYP-Cluster: Active citizenship

The following schools will cooperate: High School Centre (Pale, BIH), Liceul Teoretic ‘ Mihail Sadoveanu’ (Moldova), Liceul Teoretic ‘George Calinescu’ (Romania), Secondary Mixed School ’17 September’ (Montenegro).

On Tue 3rd July, the participants of this cluster were trained together with the people of cluster/Cultural dialogue. The workshop trainers were Danijela Petrovic and Radmila Gosovic. The topic was Active citizenship and Liquid democracy. On the basis of different textes, the complex concept of Liquid democracy was explained by the participants themselves and presented to their colleagues. Afterwards, two groups were built in order to discuss the Pro and Contra in a very concise and informative form. The participants were trained to play roles, even if their personal opinion during the discussion was different to the position they had to argue. Due to these tools ‘Liquid democracy’ became more sharpened.
