In early February 2020, 55 SSIO members from five cities in Northwest Russia attended the 19th Conference of the northwest region. The theme of the conference was “Unity is Divinity – Purity is Enlightenment”. SSIO activities during 2019 were reviewed through music, video, games, and presentations. It was reported that several newspapers showcased the work of the SSIO in Russian cities. Two seminars were held, and the day ended with  games and contests. The second day of the conference opened with a workshop on human values. Inspiring performances with skits and songs were also presented.
