My main participation motive in this program was to get into the international community with people who are interested in development of North-east Asia region. By making new connections, we can make ourselves more openminded to the new ways of thinking. Second motive was to listen to specialists out of different spheres. By listening way of how people making their thoughts in a system make yourself better. Especially helped that field of course is interdisciplinary, and you might take new knowledge that differ from your major (for example, ecology is not close to me). But by understanding of how we can connect different spheres; we get new ways of research. Ecological history is actual now. Lecture of prof. KATO gives us perfect example of how we can use it. Such new views help history (as scientific field) see alternative turns of way of human genus (non-Europe-oriented view), important and forbidden parts of the world (where was active connections between each other and unique systems). Humanity is on stage of developing each territory and resource it has. North-east Asia (especially northern part) is new in high developed world system, but already it takes important place to progress (economical, cultural, etc.). From this course I already got new idea for future article. Such ideas came in mind always inside hard-working process. Creative Many of Q&A stage gave opportunity to connect and make discussion between people. Also, I should say about working in groups. I was a leader of my group, and it was perfect addition to my new skills. To make decision is very hard, especially in international community. But my group helped me a lot and we were working as a team in each case. I think that we made our work on maximum of our possibilities. Sometimes we had discussion about cultures after classes. Such non-formal opportunities are upgrading your skills in language and multicultural communication. In one discussion I got the question, who we are to each other? Neighbours, opponents? I got the thought that our nature already answered who we are. We are close in material world, some hours to get into the Japan or Russia. Isn’t nature gave us answer already that we should be closer as people?
