Where will your idea take place?

Sambir, Ukraine

Why does Europe need your idea?

The problem is the low social activity of young people because of the lack of places for active exchange of ideas, intellectual conducting meetings using creative methods and approaches. In such circumstances, young people have no opportunities to develop their skills and can not find adherents. They either leave the city or spend time aimlessly and alcohol abuse. In the absence of an active community in city there is no social initiatives, public control and active movement for development.

What is your impact?

Solving this problem will be creation of the "Youth Space" –intended and adapted surroundings to the cultural and intellectual exchange, implementation of ideas to solve local problems. The young people will meet regularly to generate new ideas and implement them together. They will become the young elite of the city and will participate in the cultural life of the city. The number projects will increase. The level of alcohol abuse will decrease. The youth cross-border cooperation will improve.
