Visoko, 15.11. – 17.11.2019.
The first module of the sixth generation of the APO is finished. Participants of the Academy spent the weekend at the St. Bonaventure Monastery in Visoko. The aim of this Academy is to educate young people and prepare them for political work, promoting dialogue and moral and responsible policies.
Topics discussed include: socialization of political cultures, green transitions and populism as a contemporary political challenge. Special emphasis was put onto the issue of populism in the economy and media. We also talked about a regional political portrait of Boris Divković.
Global political portraits of female Nobel Peace Prize winners introduced us into the third day of the programme. The rest of the final day we discussed politics, civil society and education with our friend Zilka Spahić Šiljak, PhD in gender studies (TPO Foundation, Sarajevo).
Through this programme, BDF wishes to contribute to the development of a new political culture, as an indispensable precondition for the effective functioning of political structures and peaceful coexistence in B&H, by educating a new, young generation of politicians from parties and organizations with different political backgrounds and ideologies, and discussing topics not so common in public discourse.
We had a wonderful weekend from which carried useful and important lessons, until our next meeting.
