Green Crew Team Has a Chance to Join the Russia Youth Environmental Program
The Green Crew has taken part in the quests of the Association of Green Universities of Russia and thus has a chance to join the Russia Youth Environmental Program.
The Russia Youth Environmental Program is a two-week-long internship in the USA that provides students an opportunity to discuss topical issues of ecology and sustainable development at the international level.
The program is designed to introduce the concept of sustainable development, which provides for a harmonious development of society considering the economic, ecological, and social factors. Participants learn about environmental responsibility across the entire society, study the most significant youth environmental and social projects and local communities’ initiatives.
Of 394 applicants, the committee of the program has selected the works by Maria Dochinets (the 1st year student of the International Relations program) and Dmitry Kurakin (the 2nd year student of the Ecology and Natural Resource Use program).
The principal aim of the program is the development of an environmental project that can be implemented at home.
“We will use the experience we gain from the participation in this program to make Petrozavodsk cleaner, more pleasant and eco-friendly city for both local citizens and guests of the capital of Karelia”, said the students.
