On 26 May 2018, the SPIEF venue will host the Youth Economic Forum organized by the Federal Agency for Youth Affairs (Rosmolodezh) in conjunction with the All-Russian Non-Governmental Organization of Small and Medium Business OPORA RUSSIA and the Talent and Success Educational Foundation.
During the forum, participants will have an opportunity to discuss key economic and political issues, including those that were examined as part of the main SPIEF business programme, with leaders of international and Russian businesses, major international experts, and scientists.
The key event of the SPIEF Youth Day programme will be the central meeting ‘Russia’s Youth Economic Agenda for 2018–2024.’ The meeting participants will discuss the development of the potential of young people as an economically active part of the population and expanding the contribution made by young entrepreneurs to GDP.
The economic sessions will focus on identifying the role of young Russian entrepreneurs on the global arena, ways for the youth business community to interact within the G20 as well as the search for unifying principles for today’s young entrepreneurs.
Tapping into the potential of young people in Russia’s current economic conditions will be a separate topic of discussion. The participants will discuss ways to enhance the efficiency of social elevators, the problem of self‑realization among young people in monotowns, and the actions of the government and business to support the professional development of young people in Russia.
A pitch-session will be held for young entrepreneurs at which they will be able to present investors with their vision for the development of new areas of project activities.
Special attention will be paid to the rise of corporate volunteering in Russia, a discussion of global practices, and the search for ways to develop a system of volunteering in the Russian regions.
A number of business programme sessions will focus on the role of information technologies in the life of new generations. Growth in the global digital economy creates new opportunities and also poses certain political risks. The discussions will focus on how to ensure global inclusiveness of the Internet space and economic cooperation online. During a separate session devoted to the computer games industry, participants will discuss ways to gamify processes in real life, tools for transferring useful skills from the game world to reality, and the use of gaming technologies to gain new knowledge and skills.
The Youth Day discussions will address both the economic component of the government’s youth policy and broader issues concerning upbringing, self-fulfilment, global responsibility. How have changes in the global economy and unlimited communication opportunities changed the system of life objectives for young people? What is school’s role in shaping the worldview of young citizens? What should the government’s strategy be in establishing values for the next generation?
