Training course within the project “Advancing Social Accountability”

The Palestinian Center for Democracy and Conflict Resolution implemented a training course to develop and hone the skills of young people, equip them with many basic skills that will qualify them to be engaged in social accountability within the Ministry of Local Government.

The training course, part of the project “Advancing Social Accountability”, funded by the National Endowment for Democracy, included 100 young people. This project is  a considerable and unique step in which the young people will cooperate with municipalities and PCDCR, focusing on some social issues and providing solutions according to the points of view of citizens and municipality.

The idea of the program came from the center’s vision of the positive role of young people as a strategic partner in planning and work to develop performance and keep up with reformative policies of the local government sector through exerting all the efforts to achieve the project’s goals.
