The team coordinated by the Belarussian Youth Council and I was responsible for the implementation of the training. The group was consisting of Belarussian activists and an EVS volunteer.

Training methods used & main activities

During the training we used several activities from COMPASS (education for all and on the ladder). The presented institutions have been introduced through quizes, followed by a presentation and work in reflection groups.

The activity sparked new ideas for further advocacy and education activites. Additionally we collected resources for the participants to learn more about youth policy and advocacy.
