‘Russia in Search of Ideas’. The ‘Raise Russia’ and ‘Russia in Miniature’ projects
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.
