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.

The Role of Women in Solving Climate Challenges
14 October 2021
17:00—18:30
Combatting climate change is one of the key tasks on the international agenda. Natural disasters caused by global warming remain one of the greatest challenges facing humanity. Women have played a major role in addressing environmental issues, which has resulted in a range of measures being adopted to improve the ecology of the planet. Women’s initiatives to clean up coastal areas, refrain from using plastic carrier bags, and develop special environmental programmes for children are gaining ground. Eco projects are being implemented at both a corporate and governmental level. In particular, parliaments with a high proportion of women are more frequently ratifying international agreements on environmental protection.

What can be done to increase the number of women at organizations and associations involved in taking decisions on climate regulation? What forms of international cooperation between women on environmental matters are most effective? What can women do to impact the speed at which a green economy is built in their respective countries? What can be done to help women play a greater role in environmental research?
