As the year of 2019 and the achievement of the title of the European Youth Capital is approaching, I am happy to see that every day, there are more and more enthusiasts, that the projects are better and better and their ideals more and more sustainable.”
Our city is the best example of how the policy got close to young people, directly to them and they are now completely included in the process of making decisions on the issues of the status and position of young people in the city, through dozens youth organisations with the support of the city.
