Hey, how’s it going? Participating Organizations of RADA-CAMP 2017 tell us about their achievements
Each year Еducational summer RADA-CAMP gathers representatives of RADA’s friend organizations in order to get to know each other, share experience, discuss topical problems and determine the directions of further cooperation. The youth work became one of the main topics of the Summer Camp, which was held from 15 to 21 July 2017. And social projects aimed at promotion of the organizations and their communication with young people acted as the main result of RADA CAMP.
Half a year after we approached the participants with the only question: How is it going?
Belarusian Students’ Association (BSA or ZBS): about their media, cooperation with the “Living Library” and Wandering Sketchbook
ZBS continues the issue of the newspaper “Student thoughts” (in print and electronic versions). However, since February 2018 the newspaper exists exclusively in digital space.
«Belarus still has no student media. We are going to occupy this niche by publishing Belarusian and international student news, original analytical materials, event previews, entertaining texts, – ZBS says. – We are not continuing issuing the print version of the newspaper. We will use the name “Student thoughts” for a student-youth news digital portal. And, thus, we will be able to focus all our attention on the development of portal rather than working on both print and electronic version, as it was until now.”
We should also note a successful cooperation between ZBS and “Living Library”. Their partnership became an inspiration for new journalistic materials (you can find interviews with the “books” in October and November issues of the “Student thoughts”) and the joint project – Wandering Sketchbook. ZBS and “Living Library” released the Sketchbook in the beginning of current school year. Everybody can leave a comment in the Sketchbook connected with the topic “How is it – to be a Belarusian student?”. According to the conditions, each person has 3 days to fill it in. After all the blank pages come to their end, the organizers expect to arrange a presentation.
Here you can join the ZBS team, catch the Wandering Sketchbook and also follow the other activities of ZBS and “Living Library”:
YPA «Historica» launched a website and became widely recognized!

Vitebsk4Me creates a map for students
The map “Vitebsk for students” is not only about where to eat and where to go. Due to the project, Vitebsk students can learn about useful objects, services and facilities, independent public initiatives and important city events. At the same time, Vitebsk organizations got a chance to tell about themselves and attract young people.
The map is distributed by volunteers of Vitebsk4Me. But where? You can find out here:
