After each lecture, youth participants provide their feedback and ask questions requiring clarification. Questions asked relate either to the lecture as such or to any related field.

According to them, this training helps them understand the functioning of their respective political organisations, their rights and obligations. It also provides them with the opportunity to be informed about the power sharing principle and to acquire general knowledge on world affairs.

They are convinced that following this training is important not only for them but also for their respective political organisations. They assert that they have just acquired a wealth of knowledge in different areas even though they have been following the training for two weeks only.
