Women from the local community shared their experience from political activities, and stressed the importance of a significant participation of women, and visibility of their actions in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
Beside presented topics students have shown particular interest in education on writing projects and business start up, so CPCD will soon organize workshops that will allow all interested students to gain the necessary skills and knowledge for a more active contribution to the local community.
