From those who already become a part of a global dialogue
Vanig Konjan
The anchor of TV and Radio Company of Syria
Because of the events that unfold in recent times, Syria has ceased to be perceived as an ancient state with a rich history. I am proud of my country and I pray for peace and safety every day, and about the point, that all of this come to an end. I pray for the day, when such a Forum, aimed at establishing a cross cultural dialogue, will be held in Syria.

Maria Batischeva
The student of Vladivostok State University of Economics and Service
I met here my old friends and found new ones, with whom I will definitely continue to communicate even divided by a distance of 9,000 kilometers. It does not matter you are 18 or 60, everyone here will learn something new. I came to the Forum from Vladivostok alone, it was quite difficult to do this way, but it was worth it.
Manuel Guijarrubia
The host of the CN-24 Channel, Argentina.
It's great when there is an opportunity to learn what excites colleagues from other countries, how they present information. Truly, it makes you move on. You understand that it is necessary to not stop on things that you have already achieved, but to embody your ideas and plans in life.
Isidora Danic
Correspondent of the Newsweek magazine, Serbia.
Thank you for this chance to become a part of such an exciting event, thanks to which I met colleagues from all over the world. This journey became a great inspiration for me: it was my first time, and I hope not the last one, I visited Russia. Before visiting your country, I thought that there was strict censorship here, and I am very glad that it was misperception.
