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 159 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.

Leading for the Future: Education in a Multi-Pandemic World
5 June 2021

In 2015 Irina Bokova, the first female Director General of UNESCO, anticipated the unprecedented disruption wrought by the COVID-19 crisis five years later, when she aptly observed that education today must be about «learning to live on a planet under pressure.» This entails both cultivation of skills and competencies needed to thrive in all facets of life — socially, economically, physically, and mentally — and engagement in domains outside the traditional purview of education, including societal and environmental justice. Now, spurred on by the pandemic, a new generation of education leaders, practitioners and policymakers alongside, is deploying innovative tools and ideas to shape the next class of global citizens and leaders, who promise a path to a brighter future. This session will explore the future of leadership and what this next generation of education leaders need to know to be ‘future-literate’ and lead the future of learning in light of the uncertainty brought about by multiple, concurrent global pandemics, including public health crises, systemic social injustice, economic inequality and climate change. More specifically, how can leaders and policymakers use this once in a generation disruptor — COVID-19 — as a starting point to practically and meaningfully change systems and mindsets, which in many cases and contexts have never served our students or our world well, to redesign learning so it is both relevant and impactful to learners?
