The aim of the project is to strengthen the culture of democracy in Latvian schools by improving the understanding and knowledge of the participants of the educational process, as well as purposefully promoting the creation and strengthening of a democracy-supporting environment at school.

The project supports a clear YES! from sides of schools for a pro-democratic culture in schools throughout Latvia, being aware that it is not enough to teach about democracy, on must live in democracy.

The project is designed to support pupil, parents, teachers and school administration to join in with their YES! and strengthen democracy, active citizenship and participation. A "Democratic and Civic Education Centre "DemokrātiJĀ!""will be created to provide support for a multi-faceable, strategic, systematic and sustainable setting, including issues reaching from institutional to very individual and emotional topics.

The project will include methodological and organisational support covering the didactic triangle: content, pupil, teacher, not forgetting the special role of parents and school leadership. The activities are grouped into 4 modules: module No.1. Plan (focusing on school documents and strategy with their implementation and the aim to strengthen a democratic school culture), No.2. Wisdom (focusing on training for trainers/teachers), No.3. Breath (focusing on strengthening the democratic competences among young people), No.4. Freedom (individual solutions and approaches at all levels of education).

As a result of the project will have a direct impact on the daily lives of not less than 10 000 young people and educators, strengthening the culture of democracy in the daily life of the school and promoting active citizenship.
