100 Ideas for the CIS described as ideas launch pad for youth

MINSK, 12 April (BelTA) – The international youth project 100 Ideas for the CIS is a great launch pad to generate ideas from youth, Belarus Deputy Prime Minister Vasily Zharko said during the opening ceremony of the expo of the winning projects of the 100 Ideas for the CIS contest and the 100 Ideas for Belarus nationwide contest, states BelTA.

“The main strategic goal of such projects coincides with one of the state’s objectives: to boost the innovative activity of young people, to unlock the youth’s intellectual potential and to unleash their enthusiasm, to create the conditions that will encourage young people to make their best ideas come true. This is why such contests and expos are the launch pad to generate ideas from youth and unleash their enthusiasm, an opportunity for them to make a statement and present their ideas to a broad audience and to be heard,” said Vasily Zharko.

He pointed out that all the contest participants chose the most important fields for their projects, namely engineering, medicine, chemistry, biology, ecology, robotic techniques, social studies. “These are the spheres that shape the technological progress, the economy of the future and are focused on improving the quality of human life. I am sure that the youth will help the CIS accomplish these important goals,” said the deputy prime minister.

Vasily Zharko also said that thanks to the state grant support system the most successful projects become a reality. “If the project is worth it, there will always be the money to support it. The boldest ideas are widely applied and merit attention not only in Belarus but also abroad,” stated Vasily Zharko.

The expo of the winning projects of the 100 Ideas for the CIS contest and the final of 100 Ideas for Belarus nationwide contest are held as part of the session of the CIS National Youth Council. The award ceremony of the nationwide contest winners took place in the BelExpo main hall.
