Activism has many different forms, and it can be fun and productive. Let’s prove together that being active is not equal to “being boring”!
AECY PUZZLE is a non-profit organization for the education of children and youth that acts independently across the Republic of Macedonia, but most of the activities are carried out in the municipality of Gevgelija.
AECY PUZZLE invites you to take part in the project Me and My Society if you are 16-27 years old and you live in Gevgelija or Belgrade. Write an essay up to 450 words on the topic: YOU CAN (NOT) BE AN ACTIVE CITIZEN! The best ten essays will take part in a three-day workshop in Gevgelija, Macedonia, starting 22-24 November.
In Gevgelija there will be three days to discuss topics related to active citizens and project management. This is going to be a chance for young people from Macedonia (Gevgelija) and Serbia (Belgrade) to exchange their experiences and ideas and familiarize them with the different viewpoints of the same problem. The workshop will be hеld in relaxed non-formal atmosphere and it will include interactive educational games. The official language of the workshop will be English.
Accommodation and two meals (lunch and dinner) will be covered. Travel costs for participants from Belgrade will be covered up to 45 EUR.
Apply by sending your creative essay that will include your viewpoint of the civil engagement and youth activism in your living place, along with your CV on the e-mail email@example.com until 5 November 2013.
