SNAU Students Took Part in the Project “TheConscientious”
On November 1, SNAU students and staff took part in the project “The Conscientious”. Its purpose is to involve Sumy region youth in socio-political processes by discussing relevant and important issues.
It’s a joint project of Sumy Center for Development of Local Self-Government, Youth and Sports Management of Sumy Regional State Administration, the media-platform “Spetskor Media” and “Vidikon” TV channel. Within this framework, a discussion platform has been created, where the integration of young people into public life is conducted on a live basis through discussion of urgent issues, explanations of complex concepts and informational and educational campaigns.
So, on November 1, there was a live discussion of the issues of filling and distributing the budget. Students were told that the country's money is the taxes of its inhabitants, so young people had the right to be interested in and get to know where the money is spent.
The Deputy Head of Sumy Regional State Administration Vadym Akperov said that since decentralization processes are taking place in our country, the lion's share of funds was transferred to the united territorial communities. In turn, UTC chairman of Krasnopillya district Yuriy Yaremchuk noted that since next year the community budget has increased three times.
SNAU conscientiousstudents assert that young people should have an opportunity for more sayand understand what processes are taking place now, not only in the city or region, but also throughout the country.
