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.

Women’s Associations and Societies on the Environmental and Climate Agenda
15 October 2021
09:30—11:00
Women’s associations play a major role in supporting women’s initiatives aimed at achieving sustainable development goals, including those related to combatting climate change, responsible consumption and production, and preserving the planet’s ecosystems. Similarly, women’s communities are closely involved in promoting the environmental and climate agenda via international platforms. However, at the decision-making level, women are still underrepresented in the field, with just 33% of leadership positions at climate regulation organizations occupied by women.

How has the role of women’s communities changed with regard to shaping the environmental and climate agenda during the pandemic? And how has the agenda itself changed? What can be done to increase the influence of women and women’s communities in efforts to work towards sustainable development? What best practices aimed at popularizing the environmental and climate agenda exist?
