We cooperates with Field
Studies Council sending groups of Russian school-children and teachers to different field
centres of this organization. According to our plan since 1997 we have sent already 7
Russian groups 12-28 participants each to 6 FSC centres all over the UK.
Usually the duration of such visits are 10-15 days and during these two weeks Russians
visit one or two field centres where they live, study, associate with the local children,
familiarize with unknown nature, new forms and methods of education, cultural and social
features of the Great Britain.
These visits are carried out on the commercial basis - local Russian schools and parents
are paying for the group transportation to the UK and their staying in FSC Centres.
Since 1996 we have arranged seven visits of
Russian school-students to Field Studies Council cenres. Short illustrated reports
