On September 30-August 2, a training camp for participants from the Kyiv region was held in Vinnytsia. 25 active students joined the Leadership Program to meet interesting people, learn a lot, and create their own projects.
The training began with a lecture by Marian Zablocki. He told the participants about economic freedom and leadership in politics.
Daniil Lubkin introduced students to the basics of economics., and Valentin Krasnopyorov told students about the basics of political science. Participants were also able to learn why it is worth studying philosophy. Viktor Kozlovsky, a lecturer at the Kyiv-Mohyla Academy, told them about this.
In addition, one of the lectures on the Leadership Program was dedicated to self-development. Ivan Omelyan taught students how to set goals and achieve them.
