YOUNG PEOPLE FROM SMOLYAN REGION SHARED THEIR VIEW FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF AN ACTION PLAN FOR THE YOUNG PEOPLE ON THE EVE OF 2015
In the frame of “Sustainable NGOs for adequate youth policy” project, implemented by “Ecoworld Rodopi” association, youths whose interests are focused on youth policies were familiar with the work of municipal councils and the opportunities that citizens have. The subject enjoyed great interest and young people reported its topicality. Specific programs were developed by the youngsters in the practical-oriented training. The participants revealed their conception for working with young people in the municipalities. Participation of young people (16-20 years old) with different status – students, workers, unemployed, young mothers, young people with disabilities gave the opportunity to look at both the problems of young people in the particular municipality and at the opportunities to attract the attention of the municipalities and the municipal councils to solve them. Materials that were created on the training will be presented on a district conference. Through this project, the “Ecoworld Rodopi” association aims to support enterprising young people and youth NGOs from Smolyan region in building competencies and confidence to contribute themselves for their better future.
