Hamedan in the first special program of this festival from Central Radio and Televisionform
Abbas_Soufi, the director of the Hamedan Top Citizens Festival, said in the first special program of the festival from the Hamedan Central Radio and Television: the ideal city will be achieved by promoting a culture of citizenship. Top citizens are good paradigms in the city that should be introduced to promote a culture of citizenship. A good city requires good citizens. In 2018, at the beginning of the urban management period, one of the topics that the urban management group was supposed to work on, was the discussion of creating a culture of citizenship behavior in various topics and areas.
In this regard, this culture-building needed to introduce citizens who are well known in this field and obliged themselves to be citizens in the field of citizenship behavior. In 2018, the first period of the Top Citizen Festival was launched and out of one thousand participants, the jury selected 68 people in various fields. In 2019, out of 1,500 people who registered, the jury nominated 18 people. This year, with the outbreak of the corona virus, the holding of the third festival of selected citizens was postponed, but in various meetings in the Islamic Council of Hamadan, the holding of this festival was emphasized. Promoting culture and explaining the duties of citizenship is one of the goals of the festival. Identifying, introducing and encouraging citizens in different dimensions, modeling selected citizens at the community level and creating a database of Hamedan elites in various fields, are other goals of the festival.
