Advocacy and Lobbying Tools: What Diplomatic Steps Are Necessary to Convert a Police State Into a Democratic State?
Ta Politika / Round Table
Through this activity, the facilitators want to make a simulation regarding the political situation in Belarus and how EU society can help Belarusians reach democracy one day. The facilitators (who have actual experience) want to demonstrate to EU youth how it is to live in a police state, or how it feels like when your every step in life is being managed. The aim of the activity is to develop skills in lobbying and advocating and show some facts about life in Belarus.
