Currently “DRJUG”’s activity is concentrated around three major projects and several smaller-scale events that are held every year, supported by state authorities, civic organisations, funds and representatives of large- and medium-size businesses of Germany and Russia.
These projects are aimed at uniting the youth of the two countries to share their ideas on activating the civil society and developing the youth policies in Germany, Russia and other partner countries (Poland and Ukraine). Orgateams that represent “DRJUG” work on putting together outstanding programs, which encompass all the spheres of cooperation between the countries, finding experts, who inspire and support youth leadership, organising meetings with state authorities and keepers of the civil initiative, culturally enlightening the representatives of a guest state. This effort allows to create a network of rigid contacts among the young people, stimulates further cooperation between the representatives of civil society based on compromises achieved on debated issues and solutions proposed while discussing common problems.
