Julia and her team have gained extensive experience in organisation training courses and study-tours for Russian mass-media, including the recent Russian-Danish media-project "To Highlight the Path to Copenhagen", which was highly appreciated by the Danish Embassy in Moscow. Another RREC project "Climate sCOOLing" has introduced innovative approaches into climate educational programmes in Russia.
