The Young as a Driver of Socio-Economic Development in an Era of Change
The number of opportunities is vast. In fact, young people are the ones who offer the most competitiveness in the world today. That’s because on the one hand, we have nothing to lose – we are much more able to travel light, so to speak. We are yet to have amassed the kind of capital that our older colleagues have. And on the other hand, we are much faster and more adaptable. In this sense, any crisis is a time of opportunity. Today, limitless opportunities are opening up for young people

State, Business, Creative Industries – The Ecology of Global Public Culture
It is very important that we start working with children before they’re 18, when they are much younger. We currently begin working on our agenda with children from the fifth year. On 1 June, the Big Change festival took place. We have a school competition with more than 2.5 million children from all over the country taking part. And they got together and decided that every year now on 1 June they would choose a theme for a national Children’s Year. They chose a theme called ‘The House We Have to Live in’ and dedicated it to ecology

State, Business, Creative Industries – The Ecology of Global Public Culture
Ecology needs to become understandable and accessible to modern life. […] It needs to be fashionable. And here we have a tool that will be featured just next week, for example, integration into the topic of the creative industries. Nowadays, such remarkable art is so often created from recycled waste. Tavrida will be taking place here in a week, and my colleagues and I will be launching a whole line of art sites created by young people, young artists from recycled waste. I think that formats of this kind bring the youth audience even closer to the topic of responsible consumption, to the topic of ecological culture

Mass Youth Involvement in Entrepreneurship: Current Realities and Future Potential
In addition, we are currently working with the Ministry of Digital Development, Communications and Mass Media of the Russian Federation to develop a navigation tool detailing various options. It will digitalize all forms of support available in the country, while consolidating all our grant campaigns and support measures offered by the Federal Antimonopoly Service and the Ministry of Economic Development. We are moving forward according to the principal of aggregation, of Uberization [the replacement of intermediaries with digital platforms – ed.] <...> All the ideas developed by these people have gone into the heart of the programme. There is a fairly broad range of them, which we have launched together with the Ministry of Economic Development. It will be launched this year in 30 pilot regions, and we will test the main formats until March next year. If we see that it’s working, we will roll out the programme to the whole country by the end of next year. It is made up of a few sections, with the first one being education

Mass Youth Involvement in Entrepreneurship: Current Realities and Future Potential
The trend for entrepreneurship is indeed very pronounced. However, it is vital that it does not only exist in the 18–35 age category. It is also essential that school pupils show a huge interest in entrepreneurship. <…> And this is indeed the case, given that last year the finalists of the competition [the Big Change competition for school pupils – ed.] proposed adding a new branch to it, entitled ‘Get Down to Business’. This year, it proved to be one of the most popular, with more than 400,000 of the 2.5 million entries in Big Change being in the entrepreneurial section

Business in a Post-pandemic World: Responsible Investing in the Future
Indeed, even at the St. Petersburg Forum, you can have a look at the programme and see that so much attention has never been paid to social topics, to charity, to volunteering, to people’s involvement, to mutual assistance. This also shows how the mindset <...> of the business has changed, among others. We had around 9,000 companies [during the pandemic, Ed.] <...>, from large corporations to small regional companies. <...> Just an entrepreneur, a bakery owner who made bread and delivered it to doctors at hospitals. <...> Of course, foreign companies that are represented here also contributed. McDonald's offered meals for ambulance crews, KFC provided support

Youth Entrepreneurship: Empty Hype, or the Future of the Russian Economy?
There is a small and medium-sized business project [the national project ‘Small and Medium-sized Entrepreneurship and Support for Individual Entrepreneurial Initiative’] in which we have protective measures today to support entrepreneurs in general, and the youth audience there has not been highlighted in any way

Youth Entrepreneurship: Empty Hype, or the Future of the Russian Economy?
Children aged 14–17 are attending the Forum. I think that if we’re talking about the entrepreneurial culture in general, it’s important today to create [such a culture] from childhood. Last year we launched the Big Change competition, and this year it has 2.5 million participants. We had 11 focuses, and they initiated a twelfth one themselves – entrepreneurship. Children want to do this
