Youth power for Arkhangelsk


Regional authorities in Arkhangelsk Oblast are ready to allocated 120 million RUB (3.3 million EUR) to two programmes on youth initiatives, one of them on the development of youth patriotism.

The unprecedented regional allocation will be channelled through the programme “Youth of Pomorie” and a new programme on youth patriotism established on an initiative from Governor Ilya Mikhalchuk, newspaper Pravda Severa reports.

Parts of the fresh funding will be spent on the establishment of a new youth centre.

As BarentsObserver recently reported, the municipalities in Arkhangelsk Oblast are now also in the process of establishing youth assemblies, which are to contribute to the development of local youth policies.
