  • public lecture
  • lecture by students to young people in a local park.
3. Tell about your idea and the theme of the event to teachers in their college, school, university, other educational institution, laying out the plan on one page

5. Invite friends, family members, teachers and co-thinkers to become co-organizers and participants of the event.
