UNDEF-MCCE: Project Citizen Workshops
UNDEF Project: Engaging Civil Society and Youth in Public Policy Dialogue Project Citizen Workshops:
As part of its regular workshops for youth and civil society leaders and under the framework of the Project “Engaging Civil Society and Youth in Public Policy Dialogue in North Africa” funded by The United Nations Democracy Fund (UNDEF), the Moroccan Center for Civic Education organized two parallel workshops for a group of eminent Moroccan NGOs and youth in both Kenitra and Marrakesh.
During three days, participants were heavily involved in skill building and training activities on how to use the highly successful Project Citizen Curriculum to engage in informed dialogue about public policy; advocate for issues in which they believe, and influence public authorities to address their needs and maximize their roles in the management of local affairs.
Feedback from the two workshops was very positive and participants greatly enjoyed taking part in such action learning events, the opportunity to meet like-minded people, to network and explore ideas.
