The message reads, in part:
“In recent years, your project has responded to popular demand, playing a significant role in its participants’ lives and acquiring a truly nationwide status. Of course, it is equally gratifying that a cutting-edge year-round Mashuk knowledge centre is being launched in Pyatigorsk today. Young men and women from all over Russia, aspiring education sector professionals and students alike, will be able to use their time at the forum and outside its programme to share best practices, build professional relationships, and discuss professional issues, of which the most important are creating better educational and outreach technologies, and harmonising the inter-cultural and interethnic dialogue in our country.
It is important that young people want to draw on their potential for the benefit of others. This proactive civic stance deserves support and respect.”
