September was especially busy for youth initiative groups. Within the framework of the sub-grant program, the youth club at Tskaltybo public school No 4 implemented the project "BRAIN-ROOM - youth space for informing the society".

The project participants developed a thematic painting for the banner, which should become the main attribute of BRAIN-ROOM. Informational meetings were held within the framework of the project. The guests were the representatives of the City Hall and City Council of Tskaltubo municipality. Young people heard information about youth programs, gender issues, social policy of the City Hall.

“Interaction in the language of “street art” - this is how the members of Senaki youth initiative group called the project carried out within the framework of the sub-grant program and used the format of street art to communicate with the public. The members of the group developed a thematic model and selected phrases. Then the idea moved to the wall of Senaki Public School No 7. Youth messages call for the need for peace, leadership, education, activism.

Young people organized a public lecture, workshops, invited students from various schools in Senaki.

 - What we know about self-government, its structure, programs, budget, what does the decentralization mean - these issues turned out to be interesting for the participants.

The project is completed, although young people will continue to interact with the public through the messages remaining on the wall.
