For a year, the city of oil refiners will become the central platform for the implementation of youth initiatives, innovative projects and events for boys and girls. And just since 2016, when this mass initiative began, Baranovichi and Polotsk, Mogilev and Orsha, Pinsk and Grodno have already become its epicenters.
The opening ceremony of the project, according to the agency, brought together guys from all regions of the Republic of Belarus. Friends made a sort of trip through the history of the oil town, as the townspeople call it. The youth travel blog leafed through the pages of the past – from the birth of the city and the first builders’ tents to today’s large industrial and educational center.
It is worth noting that the main street of Novopolotsk, which stretches like a large artery through the whole city, is called Molodyozhnaya. As noted by the mayor of the city, Dmitry Demidov, schoolchildren, students and young workers will do their best to wear the honorary title with dignity and pass the baton.
And the Minister of Education, Andrei Ivanets, who took part in the opening ceremony of the project, noted the inexhaustible energy of youth, which is always felt at such events. “Youth is that part of society that is constantly bubbling – with emotions, energy, ideas, thoughts. We would very much like to see all this potential directed towards peace and creation, so that our country becomes even more more prosperous, and our grandfathers and great-grandfathers would be proud of us,” stressed Andrei Ivanets and acknowledged that Vitebsk spent the past year with dignity, being the youth capital of Belarus.
