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, helps foster social entrepreneurship and charitable initiatives, and supports the development of the Friends for Leadership international youth movement, which is working to implement the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

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 163 economic partners; industrialists’ and entrepreneurs’ unions; and financial, trade, and business associations from 76 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.

Urbanization trends: creating cities for people
22 May 2014

The number of urban residents is growing by nearly 60 million per annum, so that by 2050 some 6.4 billion people — or seven out of every ten people — will be living in a city. This enormous demographic transition requires new approaches in urban planning and development, and cities of all sizes and in all geographies are replacing the ‘modernist’ town planning concept of the 20th century with the concept of ‘Cities for People’, where planning takes place on a ‘human-scale’. How can city planners, policy makers, businesses and other constituents best collaborate to make our cities convenient, affordable, lively, safe, and attractive to live in? How can the private sector come to benefit from this fundamental shift in approaches to urban development?
