FAQs and Useful Links


Do I need to know Russian? No! Even though you'll be working closely with Eco-Reps in Russia, you do not need to know anything about Russian, because interpreters will be available every step of the way.

Can I work alone, or do I have to be part of a team? If you'd like to work alone, you are able to. You will be paired up with Russian Eco-Reps who have interests similar to yours, but you won't be working on a project with them, you'll just be able to talk with them throughout the year as you develop your project.

Am I able to participate without developing a project? Yes! If you're interested in learning about sustainability, but don't want to develop a project, you are still welcome to sit in on the webinars as our participants learn more about sustainability. If this is something you're interested in, send an email to kgrumbles@ku.edu.
