Youth gets activated in Vidin

Within the “ACTIVate YOUrself” youth exchange covered by the “Erasmus+” program, youngsters from six different countries visited the deputy governor’s office in the municipality of Vidin. As part of the process of learning about active citizenship, participants from Romania, Macedonia, Germany, Bulgaria, Turkey and Spainon 23 June 2017 had the opportunity to interface the current work of the regional administration of Vidin. Being aware of the low rates of the civil activity of young people and their participation in democratic life, Bulgarian Youth Forum made this youth exchange happen, therefore seized the opportunity to make a program where knowledge and skills are conducted on this subject. The deputy governor stated that the administration always assists in the implementation of youth projects within the frame of their competences and encourages the civic activity and social inclusion of young people in the public life of the district.
