RGS Summer School 2019
The RGS International Summer School was held from August 17 to 25 in Moscow and the Kaluga Region.
Within the framework of the program, participants exchanged experience, knowledge and ideas of public initiatives in the field of geography and related sciences, met with well-known public figures, increased their competence, developed universal leadership qualities, learned effective project management methods and working with human capital, and also gained public skills speeches and presentations.
The project program was divided into thematic parts:
- Russian Geographical Society: "We Discover Russia Again. Together!";
- "Youth in the Field of Humanitarian International Cooperation";
- "Geography for All";
- "Design Laboratory";
- "Laboratory for the Development of Competencies."
Based on the results of the Summer School, the organizers drew up an individual activity plan for each participant. For those who did their best during the project, they prepared a special award - the title "Ambassador of the Russian Geographical Society", an opportunity to undertake an internship in the Executive Directorate of the Russian Geographical Society and take part in the preparation and implementation of the Society's projects. The winners were also offered to open a representative office of the RGS - the Youth Club or the RGS Center abroad.
