This year, the Agency for Legislative Initiatives presented the organization at the Atlas Weekend Festival. Our team carried out rapid testing for those who are interested in democracy.
From now on, more Ukrainians will know how democracy really works, who decides and how to overcome difficulties. Indeed, democracy is not only the freedom of speech and deeds. First and foremost, this is an instrument that should be used correctly: if there is a problem, then it is necessary to initiate its solution by yourself, instead of waiting until someone else, higher in the vertical power will do it.
Civic education, even if it is during the festival, is a vaccine against populism for teenagers and young Ukrainians who liked our activities.
During the festival, we met many active and knowledgeable people – Ukrainians and foreigners, open to knowledge and ready for action. We understood more of what the youth needs in order to be interested in social and political processes. The youth, in turn, has learned how to find the right way out of the situation and to distinguish power of the Government and Parliament.
It was a valuable experience for the Agency. We hope that not the last one.
