The Second All-Russian Youth Meeting
The second All-Russian Youth Meeting was held on December 23, 2015.
All year, thousands of the RGS volunteers had been taking an active part in the projects of the Society. Volunteers helped in organizing and conducting large-scale events - such as the II Festival of the Russian Geographical Society, a regional conference of the International Geographical Union, and the International Geographical Olympiad. They conducted organizational work, participated in volunteer expeditions.
To encourage the work of volunteers, on December 23, 2015, at Lomonosov Moscow State University was held the second All-Russian Youth Meeting of the Russian Geographical Society. Throughout the day, trainings and workshops were held. The volunteers were taught to cope with conflicts during mass events, effectively manage time, and make their own projects. Films shot under the auspices of the Russian Geographical Society were shown. Meetings were held with traveler Mikhail Kozhukhov, editor-in-chief of National Geographic Russia Alexander Grek, and television journalist of the My Planet channel Mark Podrabinek. At the Meeting, the best volunteers of 2015 were awarded. The awards to the most active boys and girls (over 80 people) were presented by a member of the Board of Trustees of the Russian Geographical Society, rector of Lomonosov Moscow State University, Academician V.A. Sadovnichy and First Vice-President of the RGS, Academician N.S. Kasimov.
