The Civic Action School (CAS) – project organized by Civic Action™ with the support of Council of Europe and under the Patronage of the President of Georgia HE Giorgi Margvelashvili, aims to create an independent, democratic, youth-led platform representing Young Leaders from all around Georgia.
The CAS aims to empower young people to actively participate in their respective communities and the society, in general, to improve their lives by representing and advocating their needs and interests.
The CAS united the most outstanding students from major universities in Tbilisi – organizers, inventors, leaders, and more – the people who are altering the civic engagement landscape. Our goal is to help students discover their potential and to help the people who are interested in becoming more involved in civic life but don’t know where to start.
Within the programme of The Civic Action School, students will learn 5 main subjects that are critical for a leader: Political ideologies, International Relations, Economics, Law, and Security. Participants will be divided into five main group according to their sphere of interests and will work on improving their potential. They will be part of training, debates, sessions, goals of which are their personal development and improvement of leadership skills.
Our mission is to inspire and empower people to change their world. From leaders who are already making an impact, to people who are interested in becoming more involved, but don’t know where to start, our goal is to make our programs accessible to anyone, anywhere. We will equip civic innovators, young leaders, and everyday citizens with the skills and tools they need to create change in their communities.
The first stream of participants have already successfully finished their training and have created the final document – the position of Georgian Youth on several contemporary issues.
