The Democracy Workshop programme, implemented by the Parliament of Montenegro, is designed as a program of civic education with primary students to teach them about the basic principles of democracy and parliamentary processes with the intention to promote interest in politics and democratic processes among the youth population. Through an interactive program and in a manner suitable to their age, with the help of selected and trained teachers/trainers, children from eight to fifteen years of age learn through play how democracy functions. The children write about their obtained knowledge and experience in journalistic essay which is later integrated in Democracy Workshops newspapers or present it in the form of a radio or TV broadcast. In addition to learning, the program’s aim is to explain the other two conditions for political participation, media competence and willingness to express an opinion. At the moment, there are three modules being implemented, “Democracy and Parliament”, “EU” and “Human Rights”, the latter being developed with the previous support of the Mission. http://www.demokratskeradionice.me
