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 188 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.

The Far East: How Can Socially Conscious Business, Non-Profit Organizations, and Media Partner to Improve the Quality of Life?

That’s why we always ask any non-profit organization what the aim of their media activities is. We want to know what they would like to achieve as the result of a social campaign, interview, show, or anything else

Creating Impact Content: How to Enhance the Media’s Contribution to Positive Social Change?
Thanks to non-profit organizations, we are seeing the emergence of, amongst other things, entertaining content (such as TV series and shows) which are based on the expertise of these organizations.

It arose thanks to our collaboration with more than seven non-profit organizations dedicated to problems faced by teenagers
