Youth: Image of Future Homeland? 'Big Read'

Editor's note

The more they speak about youth policy on television, the more subtle is the topic of the discussion. If there is any discussion at all. In different calls and reports and measures to be taken we hear only about need to build carreer escalators for elite part of the youth. What is going on in this country, is there an active position of the younger generation to themselves and to their future? In this issue we tried to make things a bit clearer.
