Follow up project: (Non) Respect for the rights of LGBT + people
📢Participant of our “School of Civic Education” Anida Bosović studied the topic of human rights more closely during the school, and for her follow-up project at the school she conducted a survey on the topic of human rights violations by LGBT + people.
The survey called “(NOT) respect for the rights of LGBT + persons” had a sample of 100 students from the Gimnazija “Niko Rolović” in Bar. The aim of the survey is to raise awareness about the problem of violating the rights of LGBT + people, both students of her school and other young people through social networks.

Follow up project: Workshop on women’s rights
💡Another initiative, which is a product of the Civic Education School, was organised by Jana Jovićević and Monika Mitrić. At the end of December, they held a workshop on the position of women in Montenegrin society, which was attended by 18 young people from Montenegro. Although the workshop was held through the Zoom application, it provided participants with useful information and encouraged them to think about important topics such as heteropatriarchy, the double burden of women and selective abortions.
♀️Great support to the girls was provided by Maja Raičević from the Center for Women’s Rights, who shared her many years of experience and thus helped the participants to see the situation in our society from a different perspective.
Follow up project: Youth for Human Rights
🕊Nejra Polovina organized an online workshop on human rights – Youth for Human Rights, where she shared her acquired knowledge with 20 students from the high school “Tanasije Pejatović”. The workshop was joined by Marinko Vujanović, a graduate psychologist from the Center for Social Work, as a guest lecturer.
Through 5 workshops, participants had the opportunity to expand their knowledge about human rights, how to protect them, and how to recognize their violation.
🌍Respect for human rights is a burning global issue, and we are pleased to see that our participants are focused on raising the awareness of their peers.
Follow up project: Eco Aware
Another initiative that brought together 11 great participants from the Civic Education School is Eco-Aware! Their campaign, which lasted from January 11 to February 5 and gathered over 100 participants both through online workshops and at the Mehmed Fatih Madrasa, spoke about the importance of environmental protection.
🌱This hard-working team started its project with a social media campaign and a competition in which 60 young people aged 14 to 25 participated, while the selected winners won symbolic prizes.
📚Three members from Rožaje, Hurija and our two Aminas, organised a workshop on environmental protection, which was attended by 15 high school students, while the team from Pljevlja, consisting of Marko, Katarina and Ema, shared their experiences with peers from the class. Also, the entire “Eco-Aware” team organised an online workshop led by Andjela Lekovic, which was attended by 20 young people. They ended the campaign with a workshop “Think globally, work locally”, led by Semir Gutić, which was followed by 15 young people.
