increasing political literacy of youth

NATIONAL CABINETS

National Cabinets is a training simulation of Pakistan’s governing institutes that engages youth to learn about governance and democracy. National and provincial assemblies, special commisions, and regulatory bodies are simulated in which participants play the role of political leaders, civil society activists, and stakeholders pursuing dialogue, research, and documentation pertaining to issues of strategic national interests.

Previously, OpenMic had simulated two conferences of National Cabinets at NED University, impacting 800+ youth. In 2019, OpenMic decided to democratize the movement, and scaled down in number to make te activity more impactful by partnering up with public sector and non-profit academic institutes.

FEEDBACK

“Events like National Cabinets have a great future, and need to be scaled up”

– Dr. Kiran Rafique, Student Advisor, Institute of Pharmaceutical Sciences, JSMU

“The best thing about National Cabinets was that there was no language barrier and we could speak in Urdu. Unlike other public speaking events in the city that only happen in English Language, Openmic should conduct more events in Urdu only to encourage students like has who have weak language skills but want to participate and gain exposure through such activities.”

– Beensih Khalid, Participant, JSMU

“I have recently attended National Cabinets events and I really feel empowered after attending it because it really made me aware of the political issues in Pakistan as well as relating to Pakistan and I really feel the need to know more about it.”
