The project of Elena Kanakova from Khabarovsk won the Agency for the Development of Human Capital in the Far East competition, according to Komsomolskaya Pravda in Khabarovsk.
Yelena Kanakova developed a standard project for developing ethnographic tourism on one hectare of land. During the Amur Youth Forum, the competition jury recognized the idea as having been well thought out and applicable for all regions of the Far East.
“We were primarily interested in the ideas that could be realistically implemented,” said Denis Kuzin, Head of the Far East Hectare project of the Agency for the Development of Human Capital in the Far East.
Yelena Kanakova’s project was the best of the total of eight competition submissions. As a prize, the author of the project received an invitation to the Eastern Economic Forum. Elena also received a Federal Agency for Youth Affairs’ grant of RUB 200,000 for the idea of developing methodological recommendations for how the people of Russia could use a Far East hectare.
