Abstract [en]

Two roads to promote the development of a democratic culture in Veliky Novgorod in post-Soviet Russia are described. The development of home owner partnerships in the city means privatisation of apartment houses which previously were state property. This required considerable support from city administration to establish both funding, loan and proper economic and administrative routines. Educational programmes were run to develop the competence needed among those to work in the new partnerships. Responsibility for the houses as well as surrounding territory resulted in considerably improved housing conditions. These included effective sharing of common property, better and cheaper maintenance and services, and a better social situation. Secondly the creation of a folk high school or "Peoples university" in Novgorod, in cooperation with the Swedish city of Örebro, is described. Also here the focus is on democratisation especially in practical life. The subjects studied include new communication technologies, foreign languages, and political education. The promotion of culture is important. The education also has a goal to promote employment, e.g. in public health, services or environmental work.
