Thank you for your interest in the festival, I am sure that it will be interesting and fruitful and will open new horizons in your life. You will have the opportunity to offer something new that you and your community need, the opportunity to influence the environment. Go for it and remember: we are together, and together we will go to the future!" USUE Rector Yakov Silin addressed the participants of the Urban-fest with a welcoming speech.
