Participants began their journey in Diversity School 2019 in June. Young people from different parts of Georgia attended three seminars during six months. On the Kick-off seminar participants got familiar with the topics of diversity, active citizenship and democracy and formulated social initiatives to solve the problems existing in their communities. On the second seminar, better known as the Project Management Seminar, participants  developed project writing skills and finalized their project applications with the support of mentors and facilitators. 

In the months of September and October participants implemented their initiatives in different regions of Georgia and in Tbilisi. And in November they reflected on their journey and the impact they caused with their project.
