New public organization for younger generation opens in Makhachkala
Makhachkala, May 28, 2015. A new social organization promoting cultural activities for the younger generation named Ethnicon was opened yesterday at the Center of Contemporary Arts in Makhachkala.
Opening the event, one of the center’s founders, a graduate of the University of Glasgow (UK), Oxford’s master in international economics Tagir Gitinov told that in the past two years when he studied abroad, he decided to return home and make a difference in Dagestan: "Dagestan has great potential, but at the same time, it is underrated. Many European countries would envy us. We just need to learn how to use the potential good. "
He added that Ethnicon was created to attract large numbers of people to various cultural events. "Public organizations unite people with common ideas to implement the ideas and reach common goals. Thus, we plan to increase the number and quality of the activities held in Dagestan. With Ethnicon, we want to show people that great success can be achieved in small steps," Gitinov enlarged.
In the near future, they plan to tour Dagestan, "I'm sure many would like to see the beauty of Dagestan, so we decided to implement various youth projects to create a positive image of the republic. In particular, we plan to conduct guided tours of the region."
The fresh Dagestani public organization also aims at moral and patriotic education of youth, creating new platforms for personal growth and cultural activities, facilitating the youth’s creative development, inspiring patriotism, and reviving cultural and traditional values of Dagestan.
