A new all-Russian movement of children and youth created recently in Russia will unite all schoolchildren organizations, as said by the Education Minister Sergei Kravtsov at the IX All-Russian Parents’ Meeting. He promised that the movement would work closely with parents.
“As for parents, parents are allies here, and as much as possible we will have interaction with parents, we will create governing councils, at one time they were at schools. There is a lot of joint work here,” the Minister noted.
Earlier, Kravtsov said that on September 1, President Vladimir Putin will hold a meeting of the supervisory board of the new all-Russian movement of children and youth. On July 14, Putin signed a law on the creation of this movement. The name of the movement was not chosen at that time.
The law states that this organization is a voluntary self-governing all-Russian public-state movement that aims to promote the upbringing of children, their professional orientation, and leisure activities.
The constituent assembly of the movement was held on July 20 at the Artek summer camp, where its charter was adopted. Then it was said that the movement is designed to unite all children’s public organizations, and can include children from 6 to 18 years old.
