Yuri Gubarevich, responsible for NAM's regional development, about the program:

“In independent Belarus, the first shoots of real self-government were destroyed in the mid-1990s. The vertical of power created by the regime was unable to respond to the problems and demands of the local population.

Despite the long absence of a representative institution, during the events of 2020, the Belarusans uncovered the mass potential of self-organization, creation of backyard and city communities, distribution of responsibilities, solidarity and mutual assistance actions, taking responsibility for solving local problems - all the things that are the basis of real self-government.

Such programs lay a solid foundation for reform in the New Belarus. New specialists, trained on the basis of the modern European experience, will find their rightful place in the joint work on rebuilding our country”.

Don't miss the opportunity to get the knowledge you need to build the New Belarus!
