Tinatin Nibloshvili said, “It is an honour for us to host the Caucasus International University within the framework of the Winter School on Local Self-Government. The participation of young people in the process of self-government implementation – is the most important.”

“I am sure the experience of City Council members will help students learn more about local government activities. “That is why the meeting is attended by people who directly participate in the process of local self-government and are the decision-makers,” Tinatin Nibloshvili noted.

In the second part, Levan Zhorzholiani, chairman of Tbilisi Municipal Council’s Legal Issues and Human Rights Protection Commission, presented to the audience.

During the meeting, the school students had the opportunity to discuss actual issues facing the capital with the members of the City Council, ask questions, and share recommendations.

The Winter School will continue until February 10, during which Caucasus International University will host the main lecture days, and the final day is planned in Rustavi Municipality. Within the school, experts in the field and mayors of different cities will present their reports in front of the audience.
