The Roscongress Foundation is a socially oriented non-financial development institution and a major organizer of nationwide and international conventions; exhibitions; and business, public, youth, sporting, and cultural events. It was established in pursuance of a decision by the President of the Russian Federation.

The Foundation was established in 2007 with the aim of facilitating the development of Russia’s economic potential, promoting its national interests, and strengthening the country’s image. One of the roles of the Foundation is to comprehensively evaluate, analyse, and cover issues on the Russian and global economic agendas. It also offers administrative services, provides promotional support for business projects and attracting investment, helps foster social entrepreneurship and charitable initiatives.

Each year, the Foundation’s events draw participants from 208 countries and territories, with more than 15,000 media representatives working on-site at Roscongress’ various venues. The Foundation benefits from analytical and professional expertise provided by 5,000 people working in Russia and abroad.

The Foundation works alongside various UN departments and other international organizations, and is building multi-format cooperation with 173 economic partners, including industrialists’ and entrepreneurs’ unions, financial, trade, and business associations from 78 countries worldwide, and 188 Russian public organizations, federal and legislative agencies, and federal subjects.

The Roscongress Foundation has Telegram channels in Russian t.me/Roscongress, English – t.me/RoscongressDirect, and Spanish t.me/RoscongressEsp. Official website and Information and Analytical System of the Roscongress Foundation: roscongress.org.

Snowy Homes: Pecualirities of Developing the Environment of Northern Cities
6 September 2022
Russia’s Arctic territories cover an area of roughly 4.8 million km² (28% of the country’s territory). The region is home to 11% of the nation’s income and more than 20% of its exports. In addition, the Russian Arctic is the most urbanized region of the country, with more than 90% of local residents living in cities. Despite this, no more than 2.6 million people (less than 2% of Russia’s population) live in Arctic cities, and the population numbers have drastically declined in recent decades. Such a trend could eventually lead to a recession in the economy of the macro-region and the country as a whole, and, most importantly, the deterioration of the living conditions of people living there who do not plan to leave. To stop this trend, people not only need to have their basic needs met for heat and water as well as the availability of kindergartens and schools, but also need a comfortable urban environment, a service sector, and a creative cluster of the economy, including all types of arts as well as an IT and tourism sector.
● How can we incorporate the design code of the Arctic territories, which aims to polish the environment in the settlements of these zones, when working with the urban fabric?
● What other comprehensive tools exist for creating a comfortable environment given the harsh climatic conditions? What design solutions can be used for architecture and landscaping?
● How can we preserve the region’s identity despite the similarity of all the challenges and the design solutions that are taken in response? Most importantly, how much will all these transformations cost given the inaccessibility of building resources?
