Interaktivni edukativni program za mlade o inkluziji, toleranciji, aktivizmu i komunikaciji

Interactive educational programme for young people on inclusion, non-discrimination and democratic participation

From International Arts Centre Zagreb, Romana Petrušić (actor, director and drama trainer) and Andreana Baeva-Motušić (political economist and educator in democracy and civic engagement) lead classes in artistic expression and political sciences. From U Thrive Europe, Aida Pana (emotional intelligence trainer) and Tatiana Levceva (debate and persuasion techniques trainer) lead classes in social understanding and debate.

The interactive educational programme gathered 30 young participants (15 from Croatia and 15 from Belgium) who met up once a week in Zagreb and Brussels in person and once a month the whole group would meet up in an online Zoom session. The programme was based on inclusion, non-discrimination and democratic participation and includes activities such as lectures, discussions, debates, drama, field trips and creative work.
