NSUASE (Sibstrin) student won the Grant of  Rosmolodezh in competition at Tavrida

The educational race “Science as Art” ended at Tavrida in Crimea. 327 participants from 68 regions of Russia learned to explore the world through art and create through knowledge. The Novosibirsk region was represented at the race by 6 young people, including Anastasia Snigur. The girl not only took part in the educational program, but also successfully defended her project in the Rosmolodezh.Grants competition and was recommended by the commission for the award of grant support in the amount of 365,000 rubles.

Anastasia Snigur will send a grant of 365,000 rubles to organize the “Sintez” co-working greenhouse. On the territory of NSUASE (Sibstrin), the students themselves will create a special space, which they will turn into a greenhouse, planting various types of plants and flowers there. The coworking space will become a place for collaboration, creative master classes from Novosibirsk specialists will be held here, and lectures on construction topics with an emphasis on ecology will be held as a separate block. This symbiosis will demonstrate that there is a place for creative ideas and originality in ecology, and will help draw the attention of young people to important environmental problems and instill a thrifty attitude to nature.

 “The idea of the project arose in response to a request from NSUACE students for more places where they could communicate, work on joint projects and engage in creativity. Our eco-coworking greenhouse will be just such a place for them. The fact that students will plant plants in the greenhouse with their own hands and will take care of them in the future will help to involve young people in the environmental life. Another feature of the project is that all the furniture in the space will be created from old things by the joint efforts of students. This way we will give things a new life and develop the creative thinking of project participants and change consumer attitudes. In the future, we want to scale our project by creating roadmaps for universities in Novosibirsk and Russia and hope that there will be more such eco-spaces, and young people will become more conscious and courageous,” said Anastasia.
