Betzavta is a method for learning about democracy which was developed by the Adam Institute in Israel. It is an internationally renowned democracy education programme used in schools and non-school educational institutions.

During The Basic Betzvata Training participants will have a chance to become familiar with the Betzavta method. Through a number of games and interactive activities they are going to explore the democratic decision-making process in a more personal way, and eventually get a more fundamental understanding of democracy.

In order to further build on the knowledge gained during The Basic Betzavta Training, The Advanced Betzavta Training will offer a chance for participants to focus on their own role as a Betzavta facilitator and ways in which the method can be applied in different working environments.

Furthermore, the international composition of both trainings fosters development of intercultural cooperation on the international level. Thus, both trainings offer to multipliers a platform for exchange of ideas regarding their understanding of democracy.
