The new campaign prepared by young people, aged between 16 and 25, for their peers, aims at increasing their interest in the upcoming elections for the self-governing regions (VÚCs). It is organised by the Stop Corruption Foundation.
Part of the campaign is also the Podzupanom.sk website meant to help visitors understand the importance of the elections which take place November 4.
“The goal is to inform young people on competences and to prove that they do not elect a passive puppet in the election but rather a person deciding on crucial issues in their closest environment,” community coordinator Klára Bernátová told the TASR newswire.
She pointed to the meaning of the campaign in connection with the findings of a poll by the Focus agency, according to which only 8 percent of people aged between 18 and 24 are determined to participate in the VÚC elections, TASR wrote.
Part of the campaign will also be communication on social networks in which famous personalities have been involved as well, Bernátová added.
