Electionville in Korca

23 May 2021, 1.00 PM

In the framework of #EuropeWeeks2021 we are pleased to invite you to the play of the game Electionville in Korca on 23 May 2021, from 13.00 to 17:00 at Youth Park (Parkun e Rinisë).

The Swedish Embassy in collaboration with the Swedish Institute and the United Nations Association Albania, EU delegation in Albania and Municipality of Korca will play the game Electionville.

Electionville is a fictional city in the shape of an educational floor game, where the participants take on the challenging role of county council members. The purpose of the game is to educate and provide insights into local governance and democratic processes necessary for a functioning democracy. The game will be followed by group discussions about the issues raised in the game and what we can do to increase democracy in our communities. 

This year, we intend to extend ElectionVille and offer participants a broader experience. On the afternoon of May 22nd, we will be organizing a Coffee Talk event at the Japanese Park in Korça, designed as an interactive space for participants to discuss local democracy and how it ties in with concepts of local governance, democratic processes, policymaking, public services and the EU Integration Process. The discussion will be followed by a training session on the ElectionVille game rules and general flow, in order to ease pressure for first-time participants.

The actual game will take place at the Youth Park, May 23rd. Targeting the young people of Korça, aged 15-27 years years old, we will welcome 20 participants, grouped into five parties. For the grande finale, we have planned a casual conversation with participants and partners of the event.
