15 August 2019 - The Government of Montenegro and the Ministry of Sports and Youth are continuously working to support young people and youth organisations in the area of strengthening their skills and competences in order to become active citizens and bearers of positive social change.
The open and partnership relationship that the Ministry of Sports and Youth nurtures for young people in various fields of social life, with full respect for their ideas and creativity, is one of the best indicators of the Government of Montenegro's readiness to empower young people in their most sensitive period of maturity and transition to adulthood.
"Young people in Montenegro have the knowledge and power to contribute to positive change and must believe that through their activism they create a better future for themselves and the society to which they belong. Responsibility for improving the position of young people lies not solely with the State and its institutions, but also with the youth who need to mobilize, unite, stand in solidarity and strive to contribute to the advancement of their position in society through their actions," said Minister of Sports and Youth of Montenegro Nikola Janović on the occasion of International Youth Day – 12 August.
"Dear youth, with the sincerest congratulations on the occasion of International Youth Day, I would like to urge you, respecting the principles of equality, dialogue, tolerance, and responsibility, while fostering empathy and sensibility, understanding and acceptance of diversity, to choose activism believing in its power," reads Janović's letter speaking about youth in Montenegro.
