Lighthouse of knowledge

About the Lighthouse

“Lighthouse of Knowledge” is a project implemented by the Association for the Affirmation of Culture – KAS ( afirmacijakulture.org ) and which encourages high school students to master the basics of writing projects and presenting them through creative and instructive multi-month work.

The “Lighthouse of Knowledge” project is a competition of 60 high school students from 15 local communities divided into teams. Each team consists of four third- and fourth-year high school students. With the expert guidance of mentors and coordinators from the youth organization, the teams will work on devising an idea that will improve life in their environment. The topics on which the projects will be designed are: tourism, public health, ecology, social activism and culture and art. 15 cities from the Republic of Serbia are participating in the project.
