The experience of the past forum will be used, in performing which great attention was paid to the ancient towns and villages of the Ryazan region: to development of tourism, ethnography, economy, volunteerism, best practices for preserving the cultural heritage of ancient settlements, directions and results of research by historians and local lore specialists, as well as strengthening contacts with the sister cities. The work of volunteers will be expanded as much as possible. The volunteer clean-up programme called subbotniks will be held at the cultural heritage sites of ancient settlements and in memorable places of the region, as well as meetings with local lore specialists.
