The target groups of CHP are children, university students, artists and architects, lawyers, tourism industry representatives, journalists, community leaders, and government bureaucrats and leaders, who are active in public education, cultural heritage protection of minorities and media mobilization.

The discussion will illustrate CHP’s difficult ten year establishment process, and its efforts to become a central advocate of civil society.
