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 179 Russian public organizations, federal and legislative agencies, and federal subjects.

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.

Promoting a Socially Oriented Sustainable Future
16 June 2022
15:00—16:15
The social component of sustainable development requires solutions to society's current problems, as well as a clear understanding of the consequences these solutions bring, plus their long-term impact. Staking on short-term profits, wasteful use of resources, and social inequality must give way to the growth of an educated, informed, and aware society. For the development of this sector, especially in difficult economic conditions, bets are placed on internal resources and the formation of socially responsible thinking within the society. Human development, the accumulation of human capital, and the provision of greater social justice are the main vectors of moving toward social sustainability and the achievement of strategic social policy goals. What priorities does the state set for social stability? What changes in social policy are needed in the coming years? How can technology provide new standards for social services? How can a systemic partnership between the government, business, and non-profits be established? And how can the ‘third sector’ contribute to the implementation of the most important social innovations? How can communities of active citizens influence the attraction of social investments to their territories?
