"…while democracies share common features, there is no single model of democracy and that democracy does not belong to any country or region...

…democracy is a universal value based on the freely-expressed will of people to determine their own political, economic, social and cultural systems, and their full participation in all aspects of life." (UN Resolution, 2007)
"We can not speak about democracy without thinking about education. Young people are the future of our democracy and this is why we need to focus on building skills and attitudes for their tomorrow. Our actions of today have a direct impact on their tomorrow." (Gabriel Brezoiu, General Manager of GEYC and PRISMA European Network)
