I was given the opportunity to show the foreign participants of the World Youth Festival our favorite Polytechnic University, and it is unforgettable! I spoke about the advanced technologies and the main scientific discoveries of our university. Among the guests were engineering students, but humanities students were also interested. I am proud to be a Polytechnic University student, shared Teguh Imanullah, a volunteer of the Harmony Volunteer Center.

At the workshop, the participants created designer T-shirts

During the master class, the children created designer T-shirts: they used acrylic paints to paint the WYF symbol — Cheburashka. Delegates could take the T-shirt as a souvenir or donate it as a gift to the «basket of good» within the framework of the All-Russian campaign «UsTogether».

We exchanged contacts, discussed plans and future meetings. It was a pleasure to be a part of the World Youth Festival once again within the framework of the regional agenda. The guys promised to return to Polytechnic University and St. Petersburg, said Tatiana Nam, Director of the Harmony Dobro.Center of SPbPU.
