On 25-30 September 2017, the exhibition “Seeds of Hope –Visions of sustainability, steps toward change” was showcased in the framework of the international scientific Conference titled “Globalistics-2017”. The exhibition was held at the lobby of the Russia’s Moscow State University (MSU) Fundamental Library. At the ribbon-cutting event, Dr. Ilya Ilyin, Acting Dean of Faculty of Global Processes, joined to commemorate the first-time showing of the exhibition in Russia.
This Conference, held for the fifth time this year under the auspices of UNESCO, aims to serve as a leading platform for the exchange of scientific knowledge and expertise and the development of international cooperation in the area of global studies. Initiated by MSU’s Faculty of Global Processes, it was organized in cooperation with some 17 institutions including the Institute of World Economy and International Relations (IMEMO) and the Moscow State Institute of International Relations (MGIMO). Some 1,500 scientists and researchers from 50 countries attended the conference.
The “Seeds of Hope” exhibition was created by the SGI and the Earth Charter International in 2010 and has been shown in 38 countries and territories to encourage viewers to learn, reflect, be inspired and empowered to make sustainable change.
