The main purpose of the visit was to discuss the cooperation between the University of Gdansk and ONU I.I. Mechnikov. The representatives of ONU student council and trade union told about their activities at the universities and discussed joint projects together with the of the University of Gdańsk representatives. The administration of the University of Gdańsk prepared an exciting program for our students. It included visits to museums of modern art, galleries, the city of Sopot to see the waterfront with beautiful views of the Baltic Sea.
In addition, the congress participants were given a tour around the Faculty of Biology, the Faculty of Social Sciences, and the library. The students learnt about the history of each campus and shown the university’s vast territory. The university representatives also attended a lecture on "Media and the war in Ukraine”. The lecture featured a story by journalist Vasylisa Stepanenko who worked in hostility spots. In their free time, the students had the opportunity to see the "heart of Gdansk" - the Old Town.
This short trip became a huge motivation for the further development of each participant.
