Minsk, 14 June (BelTA) – Belarusian youth invited peers from over 20 countries to visit Minsk during the 2nd European Games, BelTA learned from BRSM Central Committee Secretary Yulia Zinkevich.
On 4-9 June, Russia's Stavropol hosted the 3rd BRICS and SCO Student Spring International Festival which brought together some 2,500 young people from 23 countries. The Belarusian delegation included active members of the BRSM Youth Union, winners of Belarusian and international projects.
“The Belarusian delegation was one of the largest ones. We had an opportunity to tell other participants about BRSM and its activities, exchange experience in training youth leaders, and perform on the biggest stages of the festival. The event was perfect to communicate with peers from other countries and we invited them to the 2nd European Games in Minsk," Yulia Zinkevich said.
According to her, the festival enabled members of the BRSM Youth Union to get familiar with volunteer work in the BRICS and SCO member states. “We have studied informal education, new methods to develop social competence. In turn, the Belarusian delegation presented the Belarus Remembers patriotic project,” Yulia Zinkevich noted.
