The Youth Pioneer Society concluded the second phase of the sixth edition of its Young Parliamentarian Program with a simulation game workshop.

The workshop was conducted by Crisp Berlin, a world leader in policy-based simulation games, and was supported by the program’s partner, the Konrad Adenauer Stiftung (KAS).

The workshop, which was presented by Mohamed Najeeb Rahmi and Anastasia Haliko, trainers at Crisp Berlin, focused on providing realistic opportunities for training and learning on negotiation methods and skills, formulating public policies, presentation skills and effective communication, as well as methods that help develop opportunities for cooperation with all parties.

Abdullah Zada, the general coordinator of the program, explained that the second phase of the program was of a practical nature, as the participants of the program were able to apply the skills and experiences they acquired through discussion sessions and round table dialogues. During these sessions, they discussed several topics dealing with media, public opinion, the art of legislation and decision-making, in addition to topics focusing on current issues. Zada further explained that the program will conclude with the Parliamentary Youth Forum and the closing ceremony, in addition to a visit by a group of distinguished participants on an educational trip to Brussels and a visit to the European Parliament and civil society institutions.

The Young Parliamentarian program is organized by the Youth Pioneer Society in its sixth edition under the patronage of His Excellency Mr. Ali bin Saleh Al Saleh, the Chairman of the Shura Council, and in strategic

partnership with the European Union and the German Konrad Adenauer Stiftung Institute for the second consecutive year.

The program is a valuable initiative that is helping to build the future leaders of Bahrain. It is providing young people with the skills and knowledge they need to make a positive contribution to their country.
