The aim of the project is to raise awareness of youth living in Kakheti region on foreign policy priorities and national security challenges facing Georgia. In order to ensure the effective implementation of the project GCSD organizes comprehensive training sessions for youth as well as local non-governmental organizations in order to deepen their knowledge on practical aspects of foreign policy and national security of the country. Moreover, to stimulate further interest and engagement of youth in above-mentioned area, GCSD will organize participant’s study visit to Tbilisi and arrange meetings with relevant state institutions, international organizations and local NGOs. The participants will be provided with a unique opportunity to observe the foreign and national security policy in the making, express their ideas and concerns directly with policy makers.
In addition, GCSD will support small-scale projects, designed by participating youth, by awarding small grants. The projects will be aimed at peer education on foreign and national security policy matters and any other relevant activities developed by the participants.
