Staying at the International Youth History School is a unique opportunity to expand one’s knowledge of the history and culture of Russia and the CIS countries, to meet with renowned researchers, heads of academic institutes, universities, and major archives. The issues of preserving and developing cross-cultural communications, strengthening interaction between youth of the CIS countries, developing socio-economic ties, and identifying promising areas of Eurasian cooperation were posed before the School participants. All events were aimed at countering the falsification of history and preserving the collective memory of peoples.
Within the framework of four tracks – “Memory”, “Knowledge”, “Connections” and “Culture”, – an intensive educational program was organized: round tables and discussions with leading Russian and Kyrgyz scientists, a project competition, as well as educational tours to historical places in Bishkek.
