Last weekend 30 young liberals gathered in Tbilisi, Georgia, for a training on political campaigning. The event brought together representatives from European youth organisations and from the Caucasus. Among them where members of the newly founded Liberal Youth Network of the South Caucasus, LYNC. The seminar was jointly organized by LYMEC and IFLRY, kindly supported by the ALDE party and FNF South Caucasus.
The goal of the seminar was to exchange best practices in political campaigning and learn from each other’s experiences. With sessions about the role of youth within a political party, how to mobilize volunteers and the theory and practice of political communication by LYMEC Vice President Vedrana Gujic, former Executive Director of IFLRY Sarah Wong and IFLRY Belarus program manager Daniel George the first day was an interesting start of the seminar. The day was closed by a guided tour through the old town of Tbilisi and a dinner at the riverside.
On the second day Inge Snip, former JOVD activist, told the participants about the influence of campaign messages on voters and what a successful campaign should look like. David Uchadze from the Young Republicans of Georgia spoke about the political situation in Georgia and the election results in October 2012. Furthermore Anna Kravtšenk from JuLis Berlin and LYMEC president Jeroen Diepemaat presented examples of successful campaigns and gave advices to the young liberals on how to run a good campaign. Last but not least Vedrana Gujic presented the social media campaign she ran for the European Elections in Croatia.
