PROJECT FOR BORIS KOLESNOKOV FUND

Dear friends, today we would like to share with you a story about a very meaningful and an important for us cooperation.

It's all about the mission of the guests, which Agnum Event hosted in early November. 30 winners of the all-Ukrainian project “Marine Business-2019”, initiated by Boris Kolesnikov Charity Fund, arrived in The Netherlands to gain experience and inspiration. The main players - students of Ukrainian maritime universities accompanied by Ukrainian journalists, fund employees and its president, Boris Kolesnikov.

This time our challenge was to make the program interesting for everyone.

Working on this project made our hearts pound so fast, as charity is very close to us.
and for many of the guys from the group this trip was the first trip abroad - imagine the level of responsibility for the impressions!

Just as Peter I arrived in Amsterdam 322 years ago to study shipbuilding, nowadays people are going to this country by the North Sea for the most innovative solutions in maritime business.

The main purpose of the trip was the visit of the international industry forum Europort 2019, but in 4 days our guests also managed to get acquainted with the history of the country in Amsterdam, explore every corner of Europe’s largest port in Rotterdam, take a walk along the embankments of several rivers, got inspired by old barges’ constructions and port equipment from the middle of 19th and 20th centuries at the Rotterdam Harbour Museum and met with Europe's largest dry cargo terminal employees.

The happy eyes of young sailors are unforgettable! Ahoy, sailors, come again!
