Promoting participatory democracy by informing and motivating citizens
The project is aimed at fostering a civic attitude among young voters especially in the rural communities of the Republic of Moldova. This goal is to be achieved by providing young voters in rural communities with unbiased and updated information on political and electoral developments and securing the future of democracy by educating and involving youth in the electoral process. As part of the project an off-line user friendly and appealing to youth version of the www.e-democracy.md website will be developed and installed in Community Centers of Access to Information and Training and other similar centers. Also, a Virtual School of the Young Voter aimed at educating would-be and first time voters on the importance of being informed citizens, the responsibility of voting to sustain democracy and building good citizenship skills, shall be developed. The project is supported by Soros-Moldova Foundation.
