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 155 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.

The UN, Society, and the World’s Young People: Working together to Solve Global Problems
The skills that we need to teach [young people] now are teamwork, collaboration, the ability to share information, and problem solving. These are the things that require direct involvement, joint work with them as well as networking and collaboration. So, we need to introduce the systems now and lay the foundation of respect and trust so that later young people can make their contribution to society [...] We must prepare our young people for such possible interruptions in economic activity, and we must provide them with solidarity and support across all generations. And this is precisely the work that UNICEF is doing now. We provide digital online education for young people and parents. We talk about how to properly communicate with adolescents, especially in a world that is rapidly changing and shows no signs of slowing down

The UN, Society, and the World’s Young People: Working together to Solve Global Problems
If we look at the next generation of young people, they will become the greatest cohort of young people that has ever existed in the history of mankind. Maybe we don’t see this in Europe, but globally this is exactly what it looks like. There are more young people than ever [...] And when we look at the most troubling problems of the current generation, regardless of whether it’s climate change or opportunities for new education or new skills, we understand that most young people don’t even know what profession they will have or who they will be working as in 20 years

The engagement and involvement of young people and youth is part of the new UN strategy until 2030, which emphasizes the full involvement of young people in achieving goals related to people, the planet, prosperity, peace, and partnership, as well as the sustainable development goals. [...] We must consider the opportunities for getting young people systematically involved in the affairs of society, and it all starts from a young age. UNICEF supports concrete, practical ways in which young people can access local and global opportunities for participation

The Challenges and Prospects of Youth Entrepreneurship
We are confident that entrepreneurship is a skill that needs to be trained and developed at the school level. It is important to develop critical thinking, decision making, communication skills, financial literacy, and other skills that are crucial both for team work and for developing one’s own company. It is essential for young people to have digital skills to help them truly unleash their entrepreneurial potential. Governments should come up with adequate school programmes, but entrepreneurial skills should also be developed through private training programmes

The Architecture of Public Health: International Experience and National Priorities
We recognize the importance of primary healthcare as a first step, but we also recognize that universal health coverage cannot be achieved without a consortium of stakeholders, and a better-informed public, for which the media is key

The Architecture of Public Health: International Experience and National Priorities
UNICEF is calling for far greater investment in children’s health. We see it not only as a moral imperative, but an economic one as well. The highest economic returns come from investments in a child’s earliest moments
