***DETAILS ON THE SEMINAR

The dissemination workshop will entail presentation of findings from representative areas of the country’s four sub-regions; Gulu (Northern sub-region), Soroti (Eastern sub-region), Mukono (Central sub-region) and Kyenjojo (Western sub-region), and also from media practitioners. These findings follow interactions between the project team and key stakeholders, who shared their views on the understanding and appreciation of four key national symbols; the flag, anthem, court of arms and the 1995 constitution. In addition, the discussions entailed an analysis of the country’s core values of unity, peace, equality, democracy, freedom, social justice and progress as laid down in the preamble of the constitution.

The research dissemination workshop will therefore present another opportunity for participants to further appreciate the aforementioned symbols and values in relation to patriotism and national development.
