SYN-THESIS | Municipal Youth Council Simulation of Katerini is a conference aiming at bringing youth in touch with the institutional procedures of the Municipal Council. It has been taking place for three consecutive years in Katerini, aiming at young people, high school students and public or resident students of Katerini up to 23 years old. By familiarizing them with the ways that the municipality operates, participants get to know the decision-making process, while acquiring administrative roles giving them the opportunity to discuss and decide on a virtual level on various issues related to local governance.
In a time of general alienation and indifference of youth regarding politics and the way it is practiced, SYN-THESIS offers a unique chance for young people to get more acquainted with the democratic institutions by promoting the idea of democracy and realizing the value of participation while expressing their views in a democratic dialogue.
