Engineering Werewolves Have you ever heard about committees being compared to wild animals? Dana Klimova introduces the wild, wild ITRE.
Dasha dancing, Riaan rocking, Engineers evaluating. Passing the esplosive ball, ITRE has it simply all. Sexy Paulina the lady, Athletic filmmaker and cutie Tommy. SarpÂ´s butt spelling uniforms, Standing, 69 performs. The brilliant Iaroslava, smart and lovely as Oksana, Jannis, German gentleman, get all girls is his plan. Vadim thinks outside the box, Ilya, funny fella, rocks! ITRE hugs and dance and kiss, There is no fun they would miss!
he full moon on the evening of the limo ride made a huge impact on the Intelligent Team of Radioactive Engineers. They changed into werewolves and literally got wild. What happened in the limo and what should have stayed there? Definitely the 'Never Have I Ever', 'I Am Sexy And I Know It' dance on the floor or the 'Pass the glass & shoe'. Even though their look changed back to regular in the morning, their soul stayed the same. Travelling from table to table, suffering from (foqusing) they reached decision to save a man cleaning a skyscraper window and an employee taking care of the ball. Meanwhile in other part of the ITRE world many Ninjas got killed. It all ended by building a liquor plant instead of a nuclear one in order to save the world from the Apocalypse, since it is simply cheaper and citizens will appreciate vodka more. No more Chernobyl, letÂ´s get the real threat spread to the world! Everything of course supervised and censored by the RiDa Company.
Moneybags On behalf of the media team Iana Yukhimenko proudly introduces you with the enchanting committee of Economic and Monetary Affairs, chaired by fabulous Richard Janousek.
a) b) c) d) e) f) g) h) i)
Noting with respect ECON to be a completely distinctive committee; Meeting all the deadlines due to nervous German committee members; Recognising the fact that the Limo-party was a present for Felix’s birthday; Repeatedly expressing the strong concern about the indefinite situation with the recycling of nuclear waste, by showing a Chernobyl elephant with really differently sized ears during Bibidi-Bob; Appreciating the chairpersons to share 'Alenka' chocolate and M&M’s or other for achieving your goals during committee work; Fully believing that holding 'a sexy and I know it' party (including balloons) during the cof fee brake is a perfect way to energise during committee work; Realising that during 'Magic stick' a ghost member of the committee called Dasha was spontaneously found; Recognizing the fact that Sasha got a huge slap on her ass while playing the 'Dig dag gus' and it looked fun; Bearing in mind 'that’s what I heard' quotations such as these:
- Public separate compartment bins. - A bin will never pay you back! - Write it – 'S' – s s s s s s s - So much ass sounds from the committee. - Richard: Now you need to kiss the ear... -Felix: Wait, my own ear? - I think it’s about the committee going to the wood! 5

ENVI I wall of memories Michal Rejman has the honor of introducing the superb ENVI I to the World. Dasha 'It’s so cold in here!' Savischava
ith maybe not the most exciting name, Water museum gave the committee whole loads of fun and chill. From all of the committee activities prepared by organizers this particular one was revived by HO, Zhenia Melekhovets as, quotation: 'The best activity, Misiek, Misiek ,Misiek you’re so lucky you’ll be there!' And I was, so were the members of ENVI I. Education by fun, fun by education. Playing in the mud with buckets and little plastic shovels. (Deniz: 'I’m making a river, I’m making a river!') And there’s also a cherry at the top: beautiful, sunny panorama of Kiev from old fire brigade tower on the hill in the heart of Kiyv. In-your-faces! There is an old native Americans saying: 'If you sleep too well, you’re gonna do

butt-spell'. Okechukwu, who overslept to the transfer to the CW was punished by buttspelling his name while standing on the table. Ugis quickly recognized huge potential of this device and invited ENVI I committee to play the Big Fat Pony on the table. That’s how the BFP was taken to whole new level and 10.000 hryvnias wooden table in room 106 was nearly destroyed. Beautiful girls in cocktail dresses. Handsome guys in expensive suits. Shamapgne in tall, crystal glasses. Finest Cuban cigars. Night trip in a long, shiny white limousine. Polite, trustworthy driver able to fulfill every, even the most exotic wish. Stylish interior, with seats from best quality leather. Calm music flowing discretely from the speakers. And beautiful Kyiv outside... That’s how
ENVI1 spent one of the evenings during Think Green Session. ENVI I is not for chickens. It’s highly risky business – this committee can actually have deadly consequences. For those who yet don’t know: people from room 106 at KNEU for three days had discussed issue of the highest matter: water. Simple construction of three particles with crucial influence on life of every last one of you. Why then it’s so dangerous? There is an possibility that after all those discussions they will be so fed up with water that they’ll actually stop using it. And then what? At first, social life is suffering. But eventually lack of H2O causes painful and irreversible death. Let’s hope that they’re strong enough to resist the hydrophobia. But as I see it: they’ll make it.
The developers Tua Malmberg offers you the look into the committee she described 'cute as kittens and puppies'.
uring this session the delegates of DEVE made the world a better place. Guided by Oksana Korchak, chair extraordinaire, the delegates got to know each other during one and a half, very amusing, days of teambuilding and bonded over their committee work discussions
Being a first time official I could not have asked for a better committee. The delegates welcomed me, their confused Swedish journo, with open arms. They supported me when I was having mental breakdown after mental breakdown (hopefully without
knowing it, I hope I hid them well) and they let me take as many pictures of them as I wanted, without complaining. I
want to give my thanks to the best committee ever by dedicating a special place in the paper to each and every one of its members. This is how you save the world:

Lera Mashiro – saves the world by being intelligent and extrovert.
Flavius Balauca – saves the world by having a great sense of humor and a very deep voice. Lara-Alexa Nagel – saves the world by having really cool hair and a friendliness about her.
Miroslav Shapovalov – saves the world by having the most epic laughter ever. Oksana Korchak – saves the world by being ever so nice and ever so supporting. Olga Havrulyk – saves the world by being charismatic and a lot of fun.
Andreas Bueb – saves the world by being a great listener as well as a great speaker. Olga Bubenova – saves the world by wanting to explore the world. Angelina Tarashevska – saves the world by being diplo-
The environmentalists In line with this sessions main theme, Valentina Marin gives you the fashionably green ENVI II.
et me tell you the story of ENVI II, the committee that randomly starts creating songs by playing not musical instruments (at which they are talented as well) but actually forks, knives and everything else that they can find on the table. It started out just as a
joke, but ENVI II delis are becoming more and more excited about a very promising album coming out possibly soon after the session. You might have heard only a demo yesterday at lunch; they are taking their time for the grand debut.
One other thing that this awesome committee is bringing to the table is Godlike ninja skills, Maria being the last round’s winner. All of the delegates have made their contribution and are unique in their own way. Maybe this will give you just a hint about how awesome they all really are:
› Christoph mentioned being into 9gag and had a laugh with the rest about meme faces in real life; › Dinh said ‘Challenge accept-
thought about bringing more color to the committee by designing the new image of ENVI II; › Corina made media team

proud when surprised by the camera excitingly reading the newspaper; › Olha showed her strong character during CW › Yaraslav laid low and become the proud winner of the Silent Game. It’s not a Nobel Prize, but it’s something!
cret Garden are only a few of his favorite artists. › Arne could be seen as the genius in the shadows, always saying the right thing at the right time. › Olesia was also fascinated by the ‘dancing’ squirrel that they saw at the zoo.
The true Writing about Gods in anciet history is one thing. Valentina Marin & Michal Rejman had to interview our very own demi-goddesses. We cannot ignore the fact that you are constantly avoiding media. Any comments? Z: We hate journalism; we hate you, abusive paparazzi. We actually didn't want you to come, but we were forced to. T: That's true. We have so much dirty stuff going on around here and we really didn't want anybody to find out about it. We are doing so much inappropriate things during the session.
How long have you been preparing that? (both) Woow.. Really.. ? Wooow. We hadn't noticed that.. It took us like two hours. We had three rehearsals. We decided to sing together, we chose the song.. But we agreed that just standing and sitting is boring, so we decided to invite Vitalij to entertain us during performance.
Yeah, suure... Anyway, which was the biggest challenge you had to face as Head-Orga during this session? Z: I would say that it was hiding expenditures like renting limos from the sponsors. (laughs) T: It was definitely the Euroconcert. The facility had to be rented weeks in advance but we managed to do everything in just two hours prior to the concert. During this time we also had to do our usual jobs as Head-Orgas: taking care of everyone, our session's babies.
of silence we actually thought: 'Yeah. Why not?' We checked if it's possible.. And you know the rest. Actually it's how it works: we get some stupid idea and use it. By this particular one you raised the bar quite high. Should delegates expect other surprise? T: Well.. Nearly nothing can compare to limos. We unfortunately won't be able to rent a space shuttle. But maybe that's good, we still need to save something for the next session.
Can you give us one random reason that made you smile during these past few days? T: Actually, I'll go for the one when we had to do the video for Riaan. It was 4 a.m. and at first we were really tired and simply filming the scenes that Riaan asked After the concert you rented us us to. At some point, though, we the limos. Crazy.

So if the EYP is family-like that makes you the parents of the session. Who’s the mommy and who’s the daddy? (together laughing) Who's Your Daddy?! T: Well, probably, probably I'm the dad. I usually do this boring work: Schedules, transports, preparing venues.. And Zhenia is more like an inspirational one. We divided tasks.

That's when it hit me: 'Wow, we are actually doing what we've been planning and struggling to do for the past few months!' What’s next? T: It'll be session in Odessa RS 11
-something completely different. Another place, people and venues. But we already know: challenge with the limos is accepted and don't be surprised if after Euroconcert you'll end up on yacht. Z: Indeed, it's going to be a really good session, especially considering the fact that the head organizers will have had more experience than us both have. Maybe they will be able to handle the things that could have gone better during this session in a different way than ours.
POST SCRIPTUM: After the interview we found out that in order to give this interview Zhenia decided not to show up on a very life-important meeting at the Polish embassy. She basically put session over her personal life. This is just an example of how much effort did those girls put into event sometimes sacrificing something valuable. Zhenia, Tania - I think I’m speaking in the name of every participant of Kiyv RS - Without you we wouldn’t be here. You did an amazing job. And for that: thank you.

The TRANtastics Have you ever thought that future looks bright for humanity? Artem Gumeniuk surely thinks so.

which literally brings the spice. After the first rounds of dancing the show was about to burst out to its fullest. Ear to ear, head to head, back to back and finally People to people! After getting closer to each other the party got hot and sexy. The reason for that was another game, which was the high time for girls. From the two teams competing for the longest clothes row, Dr. Flowers chose the winner.
right? Unfortunately, Pia wasn´t the only one for the Turkish delight. At some point we actually stopped counting the number of girls he danced with. Apart from that, those not being eager to dance had a chance to enjoy themselves playing various space games or wandering around the exceptional venue. We must admit that the music was just perfect to party hard awaiting the Apocalypse.
