Student elections on TV

A Regional Summer Academy team from the 4th Primary school in Varaždin, Croatia wanted to vitalize the student council. The elections campaign ended up being covered on TV.

The school team worked out their action plan while at the Regional Summer Academy Human Rights in Action in Montenegro this summer. The problem they wanted to address was that the election process for the Students' Council was superficial and that the council did not really have any influence.

Once back at school they gave all the teachers 3 lesson plans with information about what a real Student Council should be and how students should be involved in everyday school life. They also gave them information about how to organize an election campaign and the election day itself. 

The elections were later carried out successfully and were even covered on the news. The Regional Summer Academy team has later shared their experiences at the Teachers' County Academic Council.
