Our colleagues from International IDEA Myanmar launched the Myanmar Youth Democracy Academy – an online self-guided training course that offers fundamental knowledge of democracy.

The course is designed to equip the public, and particularly young people, from all communities in Myanmar with the civic knowledge and skills needed to effectively participate in and contribute to the consolidation and strengthening of democracy in the country.

The Youth Democracy Academy is composed of seven thematic courses:
• Introduction to Democracy
• Elections
• Political Parties
• Parliaments
• Introduction to Local Governance
• Inclusion and Human Rights
• Negotiating Democracy (developed in cooperation with Sea-Change Partners)

All courses are available in both Burmese and English languages. Participants who complete each course and pass all quizzes will receive a certificate.
