How can the potential of the digital economy be harnessed to solve socially important problems in Russia and at a global level? What issues in social development and philanthropy are most current and in need of priority attention?

Which global best practices should be followed in tackling problems in the social sector? What steps should Russia take to strengthen its role as part of the global socioeconomic agenda?
