The Russian Geographical Society as an all-Russian non-governmental organization brings together scientists, explorers, school teachers, post-graduates, students and many others around the common goal – to study the geography of Russia and share this knowledge.
Besides publishing, educating, running grant programs Russian Geographical Society has been always organizing its own research works and throughout its history cooperating with the geographical societies of other countries.
The science is international by its spirit and results in a worldwide rapidly developing international scientific cooperation.
Thereupon an international archeological-geographical expedition “Kyzyl-Kuragino” has been initiated by the Russian Geographical Society with the support of the Russian business and academic circles. There are two regions of the Russian Federation – the Republic of Tuva and Krasnoyarsk region – and they meet the volunteers of the expedition targeted in the field diggings of the ancient settlements, the research and preservation of unique artifacts dating back to the Scythian period in history.
More than 1,000 young people from all over the world took part in this project within last 2 years – American, European, Latin American and of course Russian volunteers were among them.
We invite all young people eager to adventures, new discoveries and new friends from different countries to participate in the third field season of the expedition that is going to be arranged next summer 2013.
