Thanks to everyone who tuned in live last week to watch my SCOLAR Talk with the talented Olesya Dovgalyuk. We had a great time chatting about everything from Ibn Sino (Avicenna) to the 400+% growth in the higher education system in contemporary Kyrgyzstan!

Thanks again to Olesya and the SCOLAR team for the invite to chat.
SCOLAR Network: we are a Beijing-based non-profit youth network, affiliated with but independent from the Secretariat of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization. We have several projects under our umbrella, through which we aim to:
- connect young people from the SCO region, including (primarily) Russia, Central Asia, China, India and Pakistan, with each other;
- bridge the gap between university graduates and professionals for career development; and, broadly,
- foster innovative collaborations for regional development and popularization of local cultural and historic heritage
Our projects include including Model SCO educational simulation game; Discussion Club, where we meet with experts and diplomats in Beijing; Ladies Circle, where we host talks with the female role figures from the region; Deep Dive, where we visit companies and institutions (including in different cities and countries) to learn about their cultures; and some others.
