20 August 2018

Over 1000 participants from Russia and foreign countries will attend International Youth Educational Forum “Eurasia”, which will take place on September 4-10 in the Orenburg region. As planned, guests of the large-scale event will include Minister of Foreign Affairs of Russia Sergey Lavrov, Ambassador of Belarus to Russia Igor Petrishenko and Deputy Chairman of the State Duma of Russia Pyotr Tolstoy.

Rossiyskaya gazeta writes about that:

“According to the Organizing Committee, the mission of the Orenburg forum is to unite youth from different countries around the idea of the Russian world. For three years “Eurasia” has been providing a platform for a productive dialogue of youth organizations and youth activists on the continent, who are ready for real-life cooperation and interaction.

This time, the educational program of the forum will be structured based on such thematic areas as “New Horizons”, “Eurasia in the Center of Events”, “Global Challenges”, “New Opportunities”, “Russia for the World”, and “Creating the Future Together”. “Molodezhka ONF” will also present its educational platform.

In addition to that, Russia and foreign participants will be able to present here their socially-significant projects and receive financial support for their implementation. The total amount of the grant support, provided within the All-Russian Contest of Youth Projects of Rosmolodezh also with the support of the Alexander Gorchakov Public Diplomacy Fund, is 3.5 million rubles.

This being said

This year, participation of the following guests in forum “Eurasa” has been planned: Head of the Federal Agency for Youth Affairs Alexander Bugayev, head of Rossotrudnichestvo Eleonora Mitrofanova, Chairman of the Committee for Foreign Affairs of the Federation Council of the Federal Assembly of Russia Konstantin Kosachev, Chairman of the Committee for Foreign Affairs of the State Duma of the Federal Assembly of Russia Leonid Slutsky, Governor of the Orenburg region Yuri Berg, member of the Committee for Physical Training, Sport, Tourism and Youth Affairs of the State Duma of the Federal Assembly of Russia Natalia Kuvshinova.

We would like to remind that in July the Gorchakov Fund announced a grant competition as part of International Youth Educational Forum “Eurasia”.

The grant competition was organized by the Gorchakov Fund with the support of the Organizing Committee of the forum, Rosmolodezh and Rossotrudnichestvo. Over 150 young leaders from all over the world will arrive as part of the “New Generation” program and will also be able to take part in the grant competition. The contest committee will include top experts in foreign affairs, representatives of government agencies and international youth organizations.

A “conveyor of projects” with grants for individuals in the amount of 150 000-300 000 rubles will be held during the forum. The Gorchakov Fund will sponsor the best three projects of the foreign participants for the total amount of 600 000 rubles.

The competition will be organized in two stages: by mail and in person (defense of a project) stages.
