Students develop creative routes for Petrozavodsk

Participants in the All-Russian Student Competition “Your Move” – ​​a new project of the presidential platform “Russia – the Land of Opportunities” – will be able to choose for their development various professional spheres that are most in demand in modern society. A total of 11 areas are provided – from sports and volunteerism to business development and high-tech industries.
From mid-August, experts from the Tourism Office, the Tourist Information Center, the Petrozavodsk Administration, the Karjala Territorial Development Fund and the creative community CreatePtz will evaluate student projects and choose the best ones.

Undergraduate and specialist students studying in a non-graduated semester will compete for the main prizes. 200 children will receive grants in the amount of 1 million rubles for training, launching a startup or improving housing conditions. Of these, 50 top winners are additional grants in the amount of 2.5 million rubles, which can be directed to the development of their faculty or university. The best contestants will travel to Russia and receive invitations to internships with the country’s leading companies.

On July 15, a presentation of cases to solve to students took place. Among the experts are Rosatom, PJSC Norilsk Nickel and Russian Railways and others. Experts from Petrozavodsk presented the students with a case study on the creation of creative tours in the city (the “Opening the Country” direction for those who intend to lay new routes and create a tourism brand, develop domestic tourism and services). The case does not have a specific solution. Students are given complete freedom to be creative.

The Tourist Information Center of the Republic of Karelia and CreatePtz are actively involved in the development of the city of Petrozavodsk as a creative center in the Barents Region. In creative tourism, there is an opportunity to attract more interesting people to the city, who will contribute to the development of the competencies of local “creatives” – designers, architects, marketers, IT specialists, fashion designers, gastro designers, art curators.

At the same time, Petrozavodsk already has its own creative potential, which can surprise not only Russian, but also international colleagues.

The organizers of the site report that creative tourism has become a tool for the growth of creative industries in Russian cities, and Petrozavodsk has been taken as a model city so that the solutions developed here can be applied throughout the country.

Students can try their hand at any field, even not corresponding to the main specialization of study. At the same time, the guys themselves decide: to develop in one or in several directions of the “Your Move” competition .

The organizers of the All-Russian competition “Your Hod” are ANO “Russia – the country of opportunities” and the National League of Student Clubs with the support of the Ministry of Education and Science of Russia, Rosmolodezh and Rosturizm.

The competition is held for students of higher educational institutions of Russia with the aim of developing professional competencies, leadership qualities, creative and scientific potential of young people.
