AGRID (The Association for Geopolitics, International Relations and Diplomacy) is a non-governmental non-profit organization which aims to contribute to the overall well-being of the Romanian society in general and young people in particular by spreading democratic values and sharing inter-cultural knowledge.
Our mission is to promote and bring added value to participative education and active citizenship, while developing solid partnerships with institutions, organizations and individuals that have an activity corresponding to our values and objectives. The actions of AGRID are always according to the highest of moral standards and social values and so is our mission.
We want to show a new perspective of the world that we live in, based on geopolitical principles, through workshops, seminars, conferences, international exchanges, all planed to be offered to national and international interested organizations and individuals. We wish to be an agent that facilitates the positive exchange of experiences between young people in order to raise the level of information, the geopolitical analysis capacity, the overall tolerance and the unity in diversity.
A key aspect is to ensure the visibility of our activities and to stimulate the active participation of our members and collaborators through round-tables, discussion groups, but also through the online platform for geopolitics that we design.
Here is a list with some aspects of our work:
- motivating young people to increase their mobility;
- raising the cultural and information level of young people;
- promoting the cooperation between institutions, NGOs and citizens of different states through tolerance and solidarity in a European context;
- stimulating cultural activities and raising awareness about the importance of education, at European and worldwide level;
- creating a network of young professionals, volunteers, institutional and NGO representatives for debating themes related to international politics (conflict resolution, human rights, peace education, etc).
We are a group of enthusiastic people and this is something that anyone who wants to do great things needs it.
We believe that networking is the best solution for achieving great things.
