Girne Municipality Social Affairs Branch Supervisor, Misli Kadıoğlu, said that their mission was to encourage young people to be active, enthusiastic, productive, self-confident individuals, to start sustainable projects in the city and thus develop their sense of belonging.

During the last summer, 50 young people had come together and took part in social responsibility activities and had a rewarding summer season. They were planning to continue with these activities this summer with an increased number of participants. An active summer season was awaiting the youth.

Kadıoğlu also said that they were creating opportunities for the development of young people as they prepared themselves for their future lives by participating in civil society activities, online and face-to-face training, ideas meetings, workshops, and excursions.

Girne Mayor, Nidai Güngördü, said that he believed the new world will be shaped by the perspectives of young people.

He said he was ready to support young people in all kinds of ways so that they could meet and compete with the youth of the World. They aimed to involve all the young  people with activities like the Girne Municipality Children’s Assembly and through the Girne Youth Platform.

In addressing the young he said: “Your participation in these activities is of utmost value not only for your bright future but ours also. Spend the most precious time you have in the most efficient way. Grow into young people to contribute to World peace with solidarity, love and by sharing. I hope you will identify your individual self in this platform and hug you all with affection”.
