From 15 to 31 October, the city of Pyatigorsk hosted the MASHUK-2021 Youth Forum.
Held since 2010, MASHUK is one of the largest Russian forums for young people. Its primary mission is to create a single environment for young people from the country’s different regions to seek partnerships, meet like-minded people, receive public and state support, and establish contacts with the authorities.
This year, MASHUK had an unusual format. For the first time ever, the event took place in October, and its participants lived in huts instead of tents. The forum combined online and offline meetings and brought together about 200,000 participants in total. Its program covered various topics from good neighborly relations and cross-cultural ties to new technologies and modern media spheres.
As an active supporter of local youth, Aqualine sponsored the forum. According to the MASHUK organizers, “knowledge is absorbed easier with Legenda Gor ARKHYZ and PSYZH mineral waters.”
