The Roscongress Foundation is a socially oriented non-financial development institution and a major organizer of international conventions; exhibitions; and business, public, 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, and 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 5000 people working in Russia and abroad. In addition, it works in close cooperation with 160 economic partners; industrialists’ and entrepreneurs’ unions; and financial, trade, and business associations from 75 countries worldwide.

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.

A World of Active Ageing: The Coming Transformation
13 October 2021
09:00—10:30
An ageing population is one of the biggest demographic challenges the world is currently facing. The UN has predicted that by 2050, people aged 65 and over will account for more than 16% of the entire population. And by 2030, the number of elderly people will reach 1.4 billion. Given these forecasts, it is already incumbent to identify new approaches to creating an environment that supports active ageing and offers good living conditions to the older population.

How will society change as life expectancy increases? What reforms should be made to healthcare and social protection? What approaches to the provision of social services are most effective? What can be done to ensure that older people play a greater role in society? How can we ensure that skills and knowledge are passed down to younger people? What best practices exist in terms of female involvement in modernizing the active ageing system?
