This 6-day training workshop, organized in Bujumbura (Burundi) from 14 to 19 July 2014, will focus on various themes related to peace education, citizenship and the electoral process. It targets youth leaders belonging to political parties and young women and men from civil society organisations.

The objective of the seminar is to strengthen the capacity of young Burundians, opinion leaders, to make "role models" willing to say no to violence; and enable them to become true agents of change and social transformation through their peers by contributing to the preparation of free, peaceful and transparent elections.
