On September 15, 2010 ICHD within the scope of Euroforum east west network organized an interactive training dedicated to the International Day of Democracy. According to the UN General Assembly’s decision of 2007, 15 September of each year is observed as the International Day of Democracy. With this purpose, ICHD invited a group of young and promising individuals to debate through intellectual discussions on the principles of democracy. The participants defined a perfect leader by drawing an ideal image of a leader who is able to guide the others. Through simulation games, the participants personalized well-known politicians in Armenia by trying to represent their real and ideal image. The event included a short film watching called “Democracy through the eyes of a child”, which voiced different opinions on the current democracy level in Armenia. At the end of the event the participants wrote a ‘letter from future’ as if from 2020 by making predictions on how Armenia will look from the democratic point of view. The young people expressed hope that by 2020 media will be freer and more open, the judicial system will be improved and less corrupted, and that Armenian NGOs will evolve more active participation due to more favourable conditions as provided by the government.
