Growth Points: At the Start of the Science and Technology Decade

“People power and civic activism are massive, and we as a society are ready. Today, 19% of people in Russia identify themselves as volunteers. More importantly, 27% are ready to become volunteers, but are yet to do so. So, the potential is huge. In terms of science, the situation is the same. The priority has been set forth, and nobody disputes it, particularly in light of the challenges which we face today. And if this priority, this objective, has been set forth, then why not use this technology to get more and more people into the funnel? Perhaps not everyone wants to become scientists and dedicate their lives to it, but they may nevertheless want to experience something great and important

Creating Impact Content: How to Enhance the Media’s Contribution to Positive Social Change?
Ask any company, channel, or newspaper whether they focus on the social sphere and cover issues in society, and they’ll all naturally say that they do. They’ll say that the content is there, articles are published, videos are made, and so on. However, one sometimes gets the impression that these efforts are spread very thinly across a huge number of problems. Sometimes, as we see it, our work on covering social problems could be made effective if there was some attempt to work in concert

Reset “S”: How will Social Programmes Change in the New Reality?
Business today... complements the state in so many ways; it improves people’s lives and accepts its responsibility for this process. [...] The crisis has exposed problems and forced everyone – foundations, companies, and the state – to move much faster and to look for new approaches

Business in a Post-pandemic World: Responsible Investing in the Future
COVID-19 has become an unprecedented challenge for the whole planet. It demanded a comprehensive response, efforts by authorities and business, but such large-scale problems always open up new opportunities. The pandemic gave a great boost to the realization that it is important for business not only to earn money, but also to develop its regions, human capital, and carry out social functions. This is not just a tribute to fashion anymore, this is a real demand from people and from society. Some analysts <...> believe that in a few years companies that are not involved in activities related to sustainable development and CSR [corporate social responsibility, Ed.] will not be able even to raise borrowed capital

A Model for Raising Investment: Focusing on ESG
Today, colleagues talked about young people. I myself am a young person and I know that for us the values of justice, conscience, environmental protection, human rights, and so on are crucial factors in decision making. For example, according to a recent study, 64% of millennials today will not accept a job offer if the potential employer does not practice CSR [corporate social responsibility, — Ed.]
