Belarus’ youth worry about employment and education

Belarus’ youth worry about employment and education. The statement is based on the results of the sociological survey. The information is provided by Dmitry Subteslny, the chairman of ROO “Belarusian Association of UNESCO clubs”, at the round table meeting arranged by “Belaruskaya Dumka” magazine.

European countries conduct “Euro barometer” surveys similar to the one conducted in Belarus. The results show that both European and Belarusian young people worry about employment. The youth do not want to be dependents. Even sixteen-year old teenagers long for independence from parents and state allowances.

European and Belarusian young people are also interested in high quality education. The expert says the youth are aware that to get a good job you should have a good education enabling you to realize yourself in modern labour conditions. One more question of young people deals with mobility. But mobility is the matter of discussion for European youth mainly.

In Dmitry Subteslny’s words, the list of values of Belarusian young people includes self-fulfillment: they want their opinion to be heard by the society and state. Other values are family, health and others.

Natalia Pshenichnaya, the head of the youth’s office of the Education Ministry, says that Belarusian youth reflect a specific Slavonic character trait – they want to be a part of a team, group. In Europe young people are more individualized.
