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.

Quality of Life for the Older Generation: Programme Implementation
13 February 2019
14:30—16:00

The Demographics National Project envisages the implementation of a federal project entitled ‘The Older Generation’. The key objective is to extend healthy life expectancy to 67 years and reduce Russia’s mortality rate. Achieving this will require a comprehensive approach, including ensuring access to medical care, creating a system for long-term treatment and an environment conducive to the delivery of social services, and campaigning to promote a caring attitude towards the elderly. A crucial part of this is actively engaging the older generation in the charitable sector, or so-called ‘silver volunteering’, in order to help bring the over-55s together. The Russian Association of Volunteer Centres is already implementing a federal programme entitled ‘Young at Heart’, thanks to which volunteering centres are opening in Russia’s regions and providing a foundation for training programmes and the creation of a community of leaders. What impact could the results of regional projects have on active longevity? How many citizens in the Russian Federation need long-term care services, and how much money is required for this? How should financial responsibility be distributed among citizens and the government when creating a system of long-term care? What medical services do older citizens need the most? How can we create a safe environment for the older generation to live in?
