URU Connect is working with the Birmingham Metropolitan College and the Social Initiatives Support Fund, Uzbekistan to provide a unique chance for young British designers who are studying at the college to attend this prestigious event. We hope that the visit will result in stronger links between the educational establishments in Uzbekistan and UK to benefit young professionals in both countries.
