The World Festival of Youth and Students will starts in Sochi, Russia 14th of October

This year, Russia will host the 2017 World Festival of Youth and Students. On 14-22 October, young people from all around the world will come to Sochi to participate in this great event.

The World Festival of Youth and Students has been active since 1947. In 1957 and 1985, the Festival was held in Moscow. The 1957 Festival in Moscow was the biggest event in its history unting 34,000 delegates from 131 countries. In 2017, we expect around 30,000 from 150 countries to attend the event!

The World Festival of Youth and Students is an international event, organized by the World Federation of Democratic Youth  (WFDY), a United Nations-recognized international youth non-governmental organization, jointly with the International Union of Students since 1947.

The festival has been held regularly since 1947 as an event of global youth solidarity for democracy and against war and imperialism. The largest festival was the sixth, held in 1957 in Moscow, when 34,000 young people from 131 countries attended the event. This festival also marked the international debut of the song «Moscow Nights», which subsequently went on to become perhaps the most widely recognized Russian song in the world. In terms of the number of the attending countries, the largest festival was the 13th, held in 1989 in Pyongyang when 177 countries attended the event.

The World Federation of Democratic Youth was founded to bring together young people of both the socialist and capitalist countries to promote peaceful cooperation and mutual rejection of war. However, with the onset of the Cold War soon after, the organization and the festivals became a matter of contention within the rivalry. Because of the enormous expenditure and coordination required to support a youth festival, most of the early festivals were held in cities in the socialist countries of Europe. However, many festivals, both then and more so since, have been held in non-socialist countries, affirming the commitment to peaceful coexistence between the peoples living under the different systems.

Aslo St. Petersburg is preparing  to hold 22nd SPIMUN conference (26—28 March 2018) organized by Gymnasium 157founded by Princess of Oldenburg in 1868 and located in the center of St.Petersburg. SPIMUN is one of the United Nations Models affiliated to The Hague International Model United Nations with the same rules of procedure. The conference is a three-day-long simulation of the work of the United Nations. The structure of SPIMUN includes the Security Council, the General Assembly (4 Committees), the ECOSOC and the Special Conference. SPIMUN is designed for high school students (14 — 19 years old).

The object of the conference is to seek through discussion, negotiation and debate solutions to the various problems of the world dealing with economic, social, environmental and cultural issues. The young delegates in seeking solutions to these problems can learn to break away from narrow national interests and to develop true international cooperation.

At SPIMUN, students play the roles of diplomats and learn to negotiate and debate in the formal way of the UN. According to the rules, every delegation can represent any member-state of the UN, except their own one. Before the conference participants should research and prepare draft resolutions on the issues of the agenda (from the view of the country they represent). The official language of SPIMUN is English. Therefore, for learners of English as a foreign language a MUN conference gives the opportunity to improve their knowledge.

SPIMUN 2016 brought together more than 700 delegates and teachers from  Bahrain, Cyprus, Canada, France, Denmark,  Germany, South Africa, Egypt, Belarus, Germany, Greece, India, Italy,  the USA, Turkey, United Arab Emirates.

Attendance at SPIMUN will mean much more than just doing another MUN. You will be able to discover the splendour of St.Petersburg, one of the world's most beautiful cities.
