On 5–8 September

junior section, which will bring together schoolchildren, global business leaders

Content Foundation, which will hold the EEF Junior as part of the Point Junior

and other regions of the country engaged in project and inventive activities.
The event’s business programme is designed with the interests and opinions of
the Forum’s young delegates in mind, who will take an active part in panel
discussions, public talks, and roundtables on such relevant topics as the
development of the social and cultural spheres in the Far East, transformation
of the education system and career opportunities, development of youth
entrepreneurship and support ecosystems.
Junior will become the space for discussing and implementing ideas of the
younger generation. It will help young experts join this large international
event as equal participants and get to feel full responsibility for the future
of the Far East and the country,” said Anton Kobyakov, Adviser to the President
of the Russian Federation.
As part of
the business programme, young experts will meet with Alexei Chekunkov, Minister
of the Russian Federation for the Development of the Far East and the Arctic,
and take part in open discussions with heads of Far Eastern towns and regions.
A cross-cutting event throughout the Forum will be the project laboratory ‘The
Far East as a Space for Implementing New Generation’s Ideas’, where
participants, with expert support, will develop project solutions reflecting
the real needs and interests of the Far East region.
more than ever, a new impetus for development, especially in a region as large
and important as the Russian Far East, requires fresh, creative, and in some
places naive and provocative ideas. This is why we believe the task of our
project is so important. On the one hand, we need to give promising
representatives of the younger generation the floor at the highest level, which
will help their ideas get heard. On the other hand, we need to prevent adult
participants from forgetting who the future is being built for and who will
live with the decisions made at the Forum,” said Elena Sokolova, Director of
the Content Foundation.
