The Roscongress Foundation is a socially oriented non-financial development institution and a major organizer of nationwide and international conventions; exhibitions; and business, public, youth, 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.

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 5,000 people working in Russia and abroad.

The Foundation works alongside various UN departments and other international organizations, and is building multi-format cooperation with 173 economic partners, including industrialists’ and entrepreneurs’ unions, financial, trade, and business associations from 78 countries worldwide, and 188 Russian public organizations, federal and legislative agencies, and federal subjects.

A Better Life for Future Generations
26 May 2018
11:45—13:00

The World Expo 2025 site will leave a valuable legacy: it will be transformed into a smart city, a living laboratory to introduce and test innovative urban planning, resource management, and municipal governance ideas and technologies. The city will provide a safe, comfortable, and nurturing environment, focused on individual residents. By establishing a number of educational and research centres, the city will be able to attract a predominantly young population. Technologies that prove their worth in this experiment will help improve the quality of life in other cities in Russia and globally. What factors should be considered when engineering and building cities of the future and what are the possible challenges to be faced? How can we ensure harmony between the man-made environment and nature? What would the ideal urban community look like? What knowledge should we be transmitting to children and by which means? How can an independent and efficient urban economy be built and smooth intercultural communication established?
