Uladzimir Matskevich, Chairman, Eurobelarus International Consortia

This witty and daring person can hardly leave anyone indifferent. Many people dont like him because he speaks the truth. Others adore him. He is popular with young people.

Vladimir Matskevich, founder of the Humanitarian Technology Agency, describes himself as a methodologist - a person who helps to organize the process of collective truth-finding.

Matskevich specializes in role-games, which meant to develop efficient problem-solving approaches. The seminars and conferences organized by Matskevich primarily for young people are extremely exciting and of high educational value. Moreover, Vladimir Matskevich is a respected expert in education system organization. His dream is to establish a national open university that will be rooted in the best traditions of European education and provide a real alternative for young Belarusians.

After Belarus joined the European Union’s Eastern Partnership Programme, Matskevich became an active supporter of the dialogue between Belarus and Europe. He critically assesses the intellectual potential of both the Belarusian authorities and the opposition. However, he believes that common sense will finally prevail and the only thing that needs to be done is to do everything right. Some will brand this strategy as idealist, but Matskevich is a pragmatist who has succeeded in many areas so far. Most likely he will manage to do this too.
