Tell me, please, briefly, what is your know-how about?

- It’s just hard to answer briefly, because it’s very easy to go to banality. Our idea is to involve young people in the active hromada life. The idea is simple, it’s quite difficult to implement it. To do this we have created a separate youth project management system. “Nothing for Youth without Youth” is about sport, science, and smart sorting of waste... This is a set of projects for millions of hryvnias run by the children themselves. Why did we focus on children? Because they are the real drivers of change! They are ready to get things, unchanged for years, moving. And for this they do not need additional motivation. It is only necessary to rally them and to convince them that they will really be able to participate in the life of the city, having received real money for their projects.
