We continue to publish the results of the civic engagement projects implemented by students within the framework of the ‘’Civic Engagement School 2022’’.

This time we will tell you about the project of Batumi Shota Rustaveli State University students: Nana Gvarishvili, Sulkhan Sirabidze, and Keti Jakeli. Students implemented the project ‘’Strengthening Civil Society in Keda Municipality’’, which aimed to increase the engagement of young girls living in Keda municipality in civil activism and local self-government.

To achieve the aim of the project, pieces of training were organized by the authors, where the following issues were discussed: the functions and forms of local self-government, skills, and resources needed to conduct public meetings and presentations.

Participants also met with the representatives of the Keda municipality assembly: Mukhran Saladze, Rezo Turmanidze, and Jemal Takidze. The guests talked about the activities, functions, and duties of the city hall and city assembly.
