Clean Games: MSUBS students participate in Russian-Japanese Eco-quest

On Saturday, September 9, MSUBS Bachelor students participated in Clean Games at Kuzminki park in east of Moscow. This time, the Games were different, as they were initiated by the Japanese social sports initiative, Spo-GOMI. The Russian-Japanese ecological quest was a step towards the upcoming Year of Japan in Russia. Lomonosov MSU Business School enjoys strong partnership with Japan and it is no surprise that we share common values, such as care for environment, aspiration for sustainability, team work and creative approach to social and environmental challenges.

Second year BM students take part in Clean Games within the Social and Value Aspects of Doing Business course. Besides participating in Clean Games, the course offers students a variety of opportunities to volunteer and participate in charity projects.

39 teams joined their efforts by collecting and sorting over 1,5 tonnes of trash that will later on be recycled. MSUBS students showed their best and earned two of the three top prizes. However, no doubt that the biggest winners of the Games are Kuzminki Park, its visitors and many birds and animals that have made the park their habitat. We are immensely proud of all students who have actively participated and demonstrated great tenacity and team spirit. These were not the first Clean Games we participated in, and we hope the Games shall become the school's September tradition.
