The symposium of the year

Security and wellbeing are multifaceted concepts as evidenced by their conceptualization, areas of application, discourse practices and a multitude of components. Security and wellbeing are linked to synchronicity of becoming a particular individual and, accordingly, to “traces” of journeys through life, specific features of education and character. Security and wellbeing set the “tone” and sustainability of attitudes to the world where a variety of man-world relationships works as a linchpin resulting in the harmonization of this individual life.

It is no accident that this is the 10th time that the university has hosted the symposium addressing the issues of security since it, as universally acknowledged value, remains a field of debates involving both academicians and practitioners. More than 100 professors and students from leading universities of Yekaterinburg, Moscow, Krasnoyarsk, Tyumen, Perm, Tula, and the invited lecturers from Israel, Czechia, Cyprus, Uzbekistan, and Kazakhstan participated in the symposium.
The Russian Academy of Education and Moscow State University after M. V. Lomonosov co-hosted and supported the symposium. This academic event included plenary and section sessions, thematic seminars, master-classes, pieces of training, roundtable discussions in line with the section’s topics.
