The government of the Russian Federation summed up the results of the All-Russian contest “Best municipal practice”. In the nomination “Strengthening of interethnic peace and harmony, implementation of other measures in the field of national policy at the municipal level” the contest commission considered 168 applications from 58 subjects of the Russian Federation. The town Izhevsk won among urban districts and urban settlements, the second place was taken by Gorno-Altaisk, the third — by Stavropol. Seven municipalities, which presented interesting developments and successful practices and were literally one step away from the victory, will receive letters of gratitude from the Federal Agency for affairs of nationalities. The town Labytnangi from Yamal-Nenets Autonomous Okrug is among them.
The town presented the project “Dialogue of cultures: Russia-France” being implemented for the eleventh year under the patronage of the department of external relations of Yamal-Nenets Autonomous Okrug. The project established friendly relations between the upper secondary school of Labytnangi and the French Lyceum Bertran de Born. In particular, students of the French Lyceum visit Yamal, and schoolchildren from Labytnangi go to visit their coevals in the city of Perigueux. Joint educational, linguistic and local history projects are the main asset of each school exchange, as the administration of Labytnangi reports. For example, the projects “Yamal through the eyes of French travelers-researchers”, “Nenets people: present, past, future”, “Culinary calendar” were implemented in French. In addition, the story by a writer from Yamal Ivan Istomin “Yolka v Zapolyarye” (“The Christmas Tree in the Polar Region”) was translated into French. Also, the schoolchildren of Labytnangi together with the students of the French Lyceum created the cultural project “Fairy tales of my land”.
The project “Dialogue of cultures: Russia-France” allowed extending the boundaries of cooperation, increasing motivation of the students of the two countries to study Russian and French, improving educational results of the students. It can be implemented in any educational institution in Russia, where pupils study French. The prospects of the project are connected with introduction of new forms of interaction. Among them — the international distance Olympiad “Linguistic voyage” in Russian and French as a second foreign language.
