SUPPORTING YOUTH IN CO-OPERATING ACROSS PARTY BORDERS

  • With Demo Finland’s support the political youth from all parliamentary parties of Sri Lanka have agreed to formally co-operate and engage in a constructive dialogue across party-borders for the first time in the country’s history

Demo Finland supports the youth politicians of Sri Lanka to overcome their political divisions in order to establish peaceful and constructive political dialogue among the Sri Lankan future political leaders. The workshops bring together youth politicians from the five party blocks represented in the country’s parliament to discuss, learn and search for joint solutions.

A delegation of young Finnish Memebers of Parliament visited in an educational weekend of the cooperation project in Sri Lanka in October 2016.

Demo Finland’s partner in Sri Lanka is the One-Text Iniative (OTI).
