The article is devoted to the analysis of the organization of patriotic upbringing of young citizens living in the city of Novosibirsk, their attitude to citizenship, patriotism as a result of such upbringing. The connection between the young people’s understanding of the state and processes of citizenship and patriotism and their actions in society is determined. Patriotism is understood by the authors as one of the deep and stable feelings that are brought up in young people and which can be one of the reasons for the successful development of the individual. Citizenship is considered as a fundamental personal quality, with which patriotic feelings are inextricably linked, and on the basis of which the traits of a full-fledged citizen are formed, striving for active positive development. The article analyzes the organization and conduct of events for the education of citizenship and patriotism and the attitude of young people to them. The possibilities of civil-patriotic activities, including those related to official state holidays and events in the formation of civil qualities and patriotic feelings of the personality of a young person, are studied. The purpose of the article is to study what is the impact of event of a civil-patriotic orientation, as a component of patriotic upbringing on the formation of civil-patriotic qualities in young people and the attitude of young people to citizenship and patriotism. Research methodology and methods. The methodological basis of the research is the understanding of citizenship as a fundamental personal quality and patriotism as one of the deepest and most significant feelings that have an indissoluble connection. This unity becomes the most important element of the social behavior of a young person, allowing him, on the one hand, to be included in the life of society, to fulfill his duties, to enjoy rights, to take actions aimed at improving the life of society. One of the leading elements here is the responsibility of the individual, which is a component of citizenship and patriotism and is manifested (should be manifested) in the real actions of a young person. The study used theoretical (analysis and synthesis) and empirical (questionnaire) methods. The survey was carried out in two ways: online survey on the Internet and personal survey of respondents. The results of the study. The authors believe that despite the generally positive perception of youth activities aimed at educating citizenship and patriotism, among young people there are multidirectional trends both in understanding and in relation to the concepts of “citizenship”, “patriotism”, to their components and to their direct manifestations. Often there are misconceptions about the content of the activity, ignoring both the important events themselves and social activities in general. In conclusion, it is concluded that it is necessary to strengthen the work on introducing into the youth environment an understanding of the essential content of the concepts of citizenship and patriotism, as well as aimed at directly involving young people in activities and participation in society. It is necessary to move from the mainly military orientation in the education of patriotism to a broader activity and the formation of civil qualities of the individual in direct connection with the activities in society.
