“We want a school in which students will have an equal role and would be the ones to decide, and not just be the passive receivers of knowledge.”

Secondary school students are often the driving force behind the changes our of society, and the citizens are not even aware of this. This is because we are young and believe in the force of actions that we take in order to live in an active, democratic and transparent society. The energy driving our actions is what our motto is about – we want to be involved and active.

The ACT grant will provide assurance, that in the next two years we will not have to worry about whether we will be able to monitor violations of rights and students and whether we will be able to be a link between students, teachers, parents and all other actors involved in the educational process.
This sort of reassurance is something that also generates novelties in our work – now we are working to provide support to student parliaments, which are student representations at the school level, we are working on the communication of USSSS with the public, but also long-term planning of our work in the future.
Our vision is a society in which a group comprising 70% of no matter what – will actually be recognized as relevant and be given the opportunity to say what they think. A society in which it would be heard. Within which it will be able to drive significant changes.
In order to achieve this, we are currently preparing several strategic documents, communication plans, opening new local teams throughout Serbia, organizing public events in which people of all profiles – your grandmothers, your high school principals and even the decision makers, will be able to take part in.
