The issue about the number of opened clubs will be solved in the beginning of the next year.
According to the words of the president of the foundation for development of science, culture, education, sport and tourism «Cooperation» of Tyumen Oblast Yelena Suleymanova, now about 100 UNESCO clubs work in Russia. They are situated predominantly in Sverdlovsk, Chelyabinsk Oblasts and Bashkiria on the basis of schools.
