School students to hold session of Youth Model Parliament in Kyrgyzstan

Bishkek (AKIpress) - зал заседаний ЖК КРForty-four secondary school children will hold a session of the OSCE Youth Model Parliament in the hall of the Kyrgyz Parliament. The Youth Model Parliament programme is managed by the American Councils for International Education (ACTR/ACCELS) with the support of OSCE Centre in Bishkek.During the session, pupils will present their resolutions on education, culture and human rights issues that they have developed during the programme. Each resolution has been debated with peers and now the programme participants will hear feedback from experts and guests. After the presentation, they will vote for final versions of documents.

Rebecca Gordan, Country Director of American Councils, and Diana Digol, Institution-Building Officer at the OSCE Centre in Bishkek, will open the session congratulating students on completing the five week-long course.

“This programme has provided young promising girls and boys with an excellent opportunity to get familiar with democratic principles and the political system of the Kyrgyz Republic,” said Digol. “We support Kyrgyzstan in its commitments to teach democratic values in educational institutions and hope students of the programme will wisely use this opportunity to contribute to building a prosperous, stable and democratic Kyrgyzstan.”

Since June 8, participants of the OSCE Youth Model Parliament programme have been working with trainers to learn more about representative government and parliamentary democracy in the country, developing their skills in debating, leadership, team-building, conflict management and public speaking.

The participants were chosen from among 8th-, 9th- and 10th-grade students at ten high schools in Bishkek. They were selected through an open competition in which they were asked to demonstrate their motivation for participating in the programme as well as their knowledge of the government system and current events in Kyrgyzstan.
