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 163 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.

‘Russia in Search of Ideas’. The ‘Raise Russia’ and ‘Russia in Miniature’ projects
12 September 2018
11:45—12:40
KEY CONCLUSIONS
The ‘Raise Russia’ and ‘Russia in Miniature’ projects, which are part of the ‘Russia in Search of Ideas’ humanitarian and educational project, were selected by the Presidential Grants Foundation for the ‘People’s Diplomacy’ focus.

As part of the ‘People’s Diplomacy’, we have selected 70 projects this year — Innokentiy Dementyev, Deputy General Director, Presidential Grants for Civil Society Development Foundation.

The humanitarian project ‘Russia in Search of Ideas’ is designed to unite people

We do not understand what the country looks like, what kind of people live in it, what they want, and what expectations they have for the future. We cannot choose a course until we can unite people with at least an understanding of the open spaces — Alexander Zamyslov, Producer, ‘Russia in Search of Ideas’ Multimedia Portal .

‘Russia in Search of Ideas’ helps with communication between the authorities and the public

The authorities do not communicate effectively with the public. Business has difficult communication processes with the authorities. Just like citizens with business. It’s impossible to start a communication process if we don’t understand in which country we live — Alexander Zamyslov, Producer, ‘Russia in Search of Ideas’ Multimedia Portal .

Our project, which emerged from the bottom up, proved to be needed for civil and is important to the authorities. Communication between the authorities and the public has begun — Rodion Shein, Member of the Board, Saint Luke (Voino-Yasenetsky) Charitable Foundation.

The world's largest hot-air balloon will be built as part of the ‘Raise Russia’ project

At the initiative of Fedor Konyukhov, the largest hot-air balloon on the planet is currently being built. We called it ‘Russia’. Its flight will be the culmination of our ‘Raise Russia’ project. But I hope the project will not end on this note and will grow into a broad movement — Mikhail Argamakov, Head of the ‘Russia in Search of Ideas’ Project; Chairperson of the Board, Saint Luke (Voino-Yasenetsky) Charitable Foundation .

The ‘Russia in Miniature’ project will help people learn about the country’s nature and choose a vacation spot

The ‘Russia in Miniature’ project will introduce people to the different nature conditions in the country in one hour — Vladislav Yashkin, Head of the ‘Raise Russia’ Project; Director, Fedor Konyukhov’s Zelenaya Planeta (Green Planet) Charitable Foundation.

People who visit the ‘Russia in Miniature’ part will not only get to know their own region, but will be able to choose vacation spots — Viktor Zhilenko, Director, Bakhchisaray Park Crimea in Miniature.

The Union of Journalists will help the ‘Russia in Search of Ideas’ project

The Union of Journalists will help, provide their own ideas, and get involved, and if the project succeeds, it will be very cool — Vladimir Soloviev, Chairperson, Russian Union of Journalists .
