On 1st February, FORS Montenegro - Foundation for the Development of Northern Montenegro started the project "Let Me Tell You Something about the EU 2", which is funded by the European Union and aims to improve knowledge and understanding of citizens of northern Montenegro about European Union, its values, functioning of its institutions and the process of integration through a comprehensive campaign of raising awareness on this topic and the active involvement of the target groups. The project is being implemented in the municipalities of Berane, Andrijevica, Plav, Rožaje, Bijelo Polje, Zabljak, Šavnik, Plužine and Pljevlja, in cooperation with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and European Integration of Montenegro and local governments in target municipalities.
Within the project, on 25th April, in Bijelo Polje one-day peer education training for 1st grade secondary schools students from target municipalities on peer education was held.
The aim of the training was to provide students with the necessary information on the European Union and European Integration which they will transfer to their peers and primary school students through organized lectures foreseen by the project, but also in everyday life. The training was attended by teachers from target municipalities, as well, who will help the children to prepare themselves for holding lectures and support them in the implementation of this activity. The training consisted of two parts. The first part was related to the transfer of basic information on the European Union, European integration, as well as Montenegro's path towards membership, while the second part was related to the techniques of peer education, through which the students realized how much important proper communication and accurate transmission of information are.
Education is very important, especially for this population that is at the beginning of secondary education during which they will have the opportunity to pass the gained knowledge on the EU and European Integrations for at least three years.
