8th NSC of EYP Belarus will be held on 15-18 November. It's almost winter, br-r-r

Belarus isn't a really warm country, it's pretty close to Britain's climate. By the way, Minsk is more rainy than London. SURPRISE 🚿

So, prepare warm clothes for our session – the temperature will be about 2°C. Our belarusian bird, called white stork (we even have black storks in Belarus, they are very-very rare), has 5-6 months of vacation every year, from early September to March. Usually it prefers India and Africa. Just look how they relax under the sun in Congo. This is so beautiful!

Hey! Only 2 days left to apply as a Chair, Editorial Assistant, Journalist or Jury!

We have Reason #2 for you to visit Minsk!

Have you ever wanted to travel to the USSR? Unfortunately, it doesn't exist anymore, BUT we have an alternative for you!

Minsk is known among Europeans as "the island of USSR". For example, our main avenue was built in the 50s. And it is indeed remarkable, guys! Must-see! ⭐️

Also, it isn't hard to find Lenin or any other soviet symbolics in Minsk. It's practically everywhere! So come and see it with your own eyes.
