On September 30, the EURASIA KIDS project, the Department of Happiness of the Eurasian Peoples' Assembly and the Center for Supporting Creative Initiatives “Zhuraveinik +” organized a conference for young journalists from different regions.

Young journalists learned about the history of the Festival, about the prospects, and most importantly, have been given a boost of vigor and positivity.

The “Sunflower” Festival celebrates its 16th anniversary this year. This year the Festival has changed its name, from now on it is a festival of family media creativity. All this time, the Festival has been held under the patronage of the Deputy of the State Duma of the Russian Federation Valery Buzilov.

In 2018, the delegation of the Eurasian Peoples' Assembly became a guest of the Festival and it was then that the Assembly supported the initiative of children and adults to create the EURASIA KIDS project. Today this humanitarian project has become one of the main and favorite in a series of the Eurasian Peoples' Assembly projects.

EURASIA KIDS project unites children from different countries. On the site of the Eurasian Peoples' Assembly, children, parents and teachers meet interesting people and realize their dreams. One of realized dreams is a journalism textbook for blind children. The initiative to write such a textbook was made by Anton Ponomarev, a blind student who dreams of becoming a journalist.
