Volunteer school of social design: 52 RUDN students present their social projects
52 participants of the School divided into groups, listened to lectures and attended master classes on project creation. The main speakers of the two days were President of the Association of Business Incubators of Russia Maria Sirotinina, curator of the regional programs of the Foundation for Economic Initiatives Elena Polyakova and the expert in the field of social design Valeria Gaydamaka.
During the training, students received professional advice on projects that they would like to implement on the territory of the University concerning social problems-adaptation of foreign citizens at the university, separate waste collection, creation of accessible environment for people with special needs, etc.
The final presentation of the projects together with the expert group will be held in the hall of the Main Building on September 28, at 1:00 pm.
The school is supported by the Federal Agency for Youth Affairs (Rosmolodezh).
