The NGO D@dalos based in Sarajevo offers a 6-month trainers training for participants from Croatia, Serbia and Montenegro, Kosovo, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Albania, Bulgaria and Romanian. The course language is German. Details: >From June 2004 to January 2005, we offer a distance learning course in German language. Main aims are to deal with the topics of democracy, political parties and European Union as well as to get acquainted with tasks, contents and methods of civic education. In addition to that, cross-cutting key qualifications such as presentation skills are taught.
