Diversity School is an educational program for active citizenship. It was first piloted in 2012.
Diversity School strives for a pluralistic society and strengthening democratic values in Georgia. It's a program for young people who are interested in civic activism, want to develop their skills and execute their own initiatives and projects ideas.
Diversity School promotes a pluralism of identities enabling members of different social groups in Georgia to better understand each other. We empower young people to use the potential offered by diversity to shape Georgia's future as a country with space for a variety of ethnic groups, each possessing a broad range of aspirations and beliefs. Through our activities we support the efforts of Georgian civil society in taking steps to foster the respectful interaction between all kinds of minorities and the majority of society. The program language is Georgian.
Diversity School is executed by the Georgian non-governmental organization Iris Group - Managing Diversity in a partnership with Robert Bosch Stiftung and MitOst e.V. in the frame of Theodor-Heuss-Kolleg program. Diversity School is financed by German Federal Foreign Ministry.
Diversity School is a product of Joint Civic Education program.
