Over one thousand students from 30 schools in Moldova learned about democratic practices from the trainers of the Centre for Continuous Electoral Training (CCET) with the support of United Nations Development Program (UNDP) within the project “Improving the Quality of Moldovan Democracy through Parliamentary and Electoral Support”.

Civic education seminars were conducted during November and December. Natalia Iuras, CCET Director explained that teenagers in rural areas face deficit of information.

“Students from 7th, 8th and 9th grades learned what a democratic election implies, how they can engage in decision making and which tools may be used to promote their views. The purpose of this project was to improve democratic practices in schools and to educate youth in the spirit of democratic values and principles,” CCET Director, Natalia Iuras, said.  

In the spring of this year, young voters - high school students from all rayon centers received training with the support of United Nations Development Program (UNDP) within the project “Improving the Quality of Moldovan Democracy through Parliamentary and Electoral Support”. Within the first round of seminars called "Democracy Umbrella" students learned about elections and electoral processes, about e-learning platform and about employment and volunteering opportunities at the CCET.
