29 January 2019

The German-Russian Forum and the Alexander Gorchakov Public Diplomacy Fund begin accepting applications for participation in the IV Youth Forum of the Potsdam Meetings. The topic of the coming event is “Development of Digital Cities in Russia and Germany – a New Way to Cooperation”.

Over the past years the topic of digitization and how it can help to improve people’s lives has been becoming more and more important. This topic involves different groups of population – politicians, youth, public figures and business.
