More than 35 activists, heads of organizations and initiative groups of the town came to the seminar "Project management Basics" which was held on February 21 at the Town Palace of Culture. Participants of the training practiced skills how to determine the goals and objectives of the social project, formulate problems, develop activities and budget of the project.

"Contest "We Improve Our City" is a good opportunity for citizens to be active and implement their ideas. We have interesting plans but they need to be drawn up correctly. At the seminar there was a lot of useful information that would help to prepare a project of better quality and perhaps to win", the seminar participant Inna Zarubina, employee of Khartsyzsk town library, no-ticed.

The main purpose of the training is to teach students to move from idea to its immediate imple-mentation. The more literate the project will be written, the higher its chances of winning are. Past experience shows that if we have a good idea and information and are not afraid of difficulties, we’ll certainly attain success", manager of KHARTSYZSK PIPE Regional Development Sergey Simonov summed up the seminar.
