2010 European Year of Local Democracy Week

 

Tarsus Municipality is one of the four municipalities that participated in the week celebrated for the first time in our country in 2010 under the coordination of Turkish Municipalities Union. As AYDH-related climate change in 2010, 250 students from 5 elementary schools were given training on environmental renewable energy, climate change and global warming in the environmental class.

 

 2011 Annual Local Democracy Week

 

In 2011, the AYDH theme was designated as human rights. The events we participated in as "common city" in 2010 were celebrated in 2011 as part of a "12 star city" to participate with a wider activity. In order to celebrate this week as the Municipality of Tarsus, a program has been formed in cooperation with Tarsus Painters Association, Tarsus Bar Association Women's Rights Representative Lawyer Ünzile Küçüköner and Tarsus Bar Association Children's Rights Representative Lawyer Tülay Sevgi Can. In the direction of the program, 5 village schools gave presentations on children's rights first, and then painting works with different techniques with children. These events were also attended by a group from the delegation of the brother city of Langen.
