To reduce absenteeism in electoral processes
Website of the organisation: www.cm-lousada.pt
ABOUT THE PROJECT:
Maximum objective is to reduce absenteeism in electoral processes and get voters to get involved.
Activity Description - The activity “Small Deputies, Great Ideas” is based on the constitution of an assembly with representatives of the 4th, 6th and 9th grade students, where they can present the prob-lems and concerns that most concern them.
This initiative also intends to make known the room where the ses-sions of the Municipal Assembly are held, the meaning of the munici-pal mandate, the rules of the municipal debate and the decision pro-cess of the Municipal Assembly.
Promote democratic debate, respect for diversity of opinions and rules for the formation of decisions, encourage reflection and debate on the problems of the municipality, provide the experience of partic-ipation in electoral processes, educate for citizenship, stimulate the capacities of expression and arguments in defense of ideas, with re-spect for the values of tolerance and the formation of the will of the majority are other objectives of this initiative.
Each school selects one student for each teaching cycle, which rep-resents the students of that school. The representative should collect the ideas and concerns of all colleagues, with the help of the teacher.
