Last weekend, 23 to 26 August, Democracy Forum 2012 took place in Repino just outside St Petersburg. The forum was organized by the Swedish International Liberal Centre (SILC) together with the St Petersburg branch of the Russian Democratic Party Yabloko and invited a long range of NGOs active in St Petersburg. I attended the event together with company from Liberal Youth, SILC and Liberal Party colleague Haralampos Karatzas.
Besides listening to alot of interesting presentations and participating in democracy workshops, I delivered a presentation together with Haralampos on the organization and budget process of Haninge municipality. Instead of boring my readers with the contents of that, here are some nice pictures of my fellow democrats in Russia.
