The 5th ceremony of the Crystal Compass Award took place on May 19 in Sochi (Krasnodar Krai, Russia).

This year, the applicants from 68 regions of Russia and seven other countries (Azerbaijan, Armenia, Belarus, India, Monaco, Norway, and the USA) submitted 389 projects, which is an absolute record in the history of the prize.

The ceremony started with a welcoming speech by Vladimir Kotlyakov—a chairperson of the expert council, honorary president of the Russian Geographical Society, academician, and Nobel laureate—who thanked all participants for the work they do.

The winners were selected in 11 categories.

The “Study and protection of ancient rock drawings (Oglahty Mountain Range, Khakassia)” project submitted by Khakassky Reserve and the “Russian Protected Steppes” project of the Khakass branch of the Russian Geographical Society became the finalists in the “Best social media project on conservation of natural, historical and cultural heritage” category. By the decision of the expert council, the Crystal Compass Award in this category was presented to the “Russian Protected Steppes” project.

This is the second Crystal Compass Award received by the Khakass branch of the Russian Geographical Society. Previous award was received in 2013 for the “Yenisey River Day” project in the “Best Regional Project” category.

“Receiving a second Crystal Compass Award is both a great honor and great responsibility,” said Irina Sannikova, chairperson of the Khakass branch of the Russian Geographical Society.

The Russian Protected Steppes media festival initiated and supported by the Khakass branch of the Russian Geographical Society took place on July 6—October 14, 2016, in four protected areas of Russia—Khakassky Reserve, Kirzinsky Wildlife Refuge, Orenburg Nature Reserve, and Daursky Nature Reserve. The program of the festival included press tours, scientific conferences, contests and exhibitions. The main goal was to promote ideas of protected areas organizations, and develop a responsible attitude towards the nature and steppe areas of Russia in particular.

Today, live visualization of educational programs is one of the main trends in youth tourism. Analysis of educational programs shows that most of the regions in Russia have potential for organizing live lessons in history, geography, biology, literature, physics, chemistry, mathematics and other subjects; and tourism can be part of educational and creative development of children.

“We worked hard to design the lesson about biodiversity that we present here today. We studied the subject, then drew a plan of the lesson several times. We tried the plan, changed it again, and discussed all nuances,” shared Olga Kirilyuk, a teacher of biology from the School #50 of Abaza.

“There is no standard approach to live lessons. Designing such lesson is a creative process, and the result depends on a teacher’s passion for the subject,” said Lyudmila Mankovskaya, teaching methods specialist from the Department of Secondary Education of the Khakass Institute of Education Development and Vocational Training.

The first live lesson in Khakassia gathered students of classes 9 and 10 from the School #50 of Abaza. Children and invited guests were divided into groups—botanists, zoologists, ecologists, and artists. Then, each group was given various tasks to solve—puzzles, creative tasks, and tests.

“It is obvious that outdoor lessons are more interesting for students. When you work on a task and observe the result in real life, it is easier to learn than when you study the topic in a classroom,” noticed Viktoriya Trofimova, a student of the School #50 of Abaza.

After the presentation, the participants discussed how live lessons can be integrated in educational programs and environmental tourism projects.

“We started in Abaza, because here we have several schools, nature reserve and tourist agencies closely located. If we do everything right, live lessons will become a great tourist product in Khakassia with a complex set of services,” reported Angelika Cheltygmasheva, a representative of the State Committee for Tourism of Khakassia.

Teachers and Khakassky Reserve’s specialists agreed that environmental education complexes of the reserve can become a good platform for live lessons in biology, geography, ecology, history, and other subjects.

The next steps of the organizations involved in development of educational toursim in Khakassa will be aimed at promoting environmental tourism, providing material and technical resources, designing plans of live lessons, and finding or creating new locations for such lessons.
