Daniil Kosyakov  was a member of  the Russian delegation at the Japanese-Russian Youth Forum in the Land of the Rising Sun. The event was organized by the Japanese-Russian Center for Youth Exchanges, the subordinate institution of Rosmolodezh, the International Youth Center, which performs the functions of the Bureau of Russian-Japanese Youth Exchanges. The initiative was supported by the Ministry of Education and Science of Russia, the Federal Agency for Youth Affairs, and the Embassy of Japan in Russia. The participants discussed the topical issues of youth cooperation in three areas - "Regional Reconstruction and Revitalization", "Multicultural Society and Cultural Diversity", "Tourism, Transport and Logistics".

A student of the USU Faculty of Culture and Art , a member of the media center Daniil Kosyakov made a presentation on  the mobile application "Eight Words about Russia", whose goal is to make the Russian cultural space more understandable and accessible to the people of Japan. The program is built on the game principle  - to memorize foreign words, it uses concepts from thematic headings and their explanations. To go to the next level, you need to pass the test for the first eight words.

"The global objective of this application is to overcome the cultural misunderstanding between two different peoples, as well as to increase the attractiveness of our country in the eyes of  Japanese guests. For a convenient form, I picked eight words, besides, "eight" is a lucky number for Japan, " said the author of the application.
