The NGO Novi Horizont completed the educational training program “Strengthening competencies for civic participation”, in which participated 23 youth activists from Ulcinj.
This program included a series of five one-day seminars, study visits, training for surveyors as well as direct participation of young people in conducting field research.
During the five-month period, program participants had the opportunity to broaden their knowledge on the concept of local self-government, its role on the government structures, the position of the local parliament, mayor and local government entities – the competencies and functions of the local government and feasible ways for citizens to use the services of public administration entities, to access the information of public significance, etc.
These activities result from the wider scope of the project “MY VOICE IN MY MUNICIPALITY”, which is implemented by New Horizon NGO in partnership with NGO “Ul info” and the City Library – Ulcinj. This project is financially supported from the Ministry of Public Administration of Montenegro within the framework of the public competition “e-Democracy – Participate, Propose, Change”, in the field of public administration reform.
