“Our club has been operating for more than five years. During this time, we managed to implement several initiatives, turning them into successful annual projects: forums, conferences, festivals, international debates, teleconferences and much more. We want our new members not only to be members of the club, but also to take advantage of various international opportunities, participate in Speaking Clubs, the School for Foreign Affairs, the School for Buddy, the Open Lectorium and other projects, becoming active members of our large international team!”
