Countdown to XIX World Festival of Youth and Students is On

Date of material placement: 17-10-2016, 12:32.

Students of the NCFU joined a large-scale campaign (1 year to the Festival) as there is about one year left before the start of the XIX World Festival of Youth and Students, which is to be held in Sochi (Russia) on October 14-22, 2017.


The Festival is to bring together over 20,000 youngsters (aged 18-35) from 150 countries with 10,000 of them representing Russia’s 85 regions. The purpose of the Festival is to consolidate the youth community all over the world thus promoting intercultural interaction.


This will be an event for those representing NGOs, journalists, teachers, youth political parties, sports clubs, IT-experts, entrepreneurs, and just creative youngsters.


And already now, a year before, thousands of students can feel their belonging to the event as the Federal Universities have installed Festival Chamomiles – clocks counting time down to the start of the Festival.


Part of the preparation activities before the Festival was an academic Forum FESTIVAL ’17 held at the Lomonosov Moscow State University where the best students represented the NCFU as selected by the Student Council.
