Winners of #WEARETOGETHER Prize to Take Part in SPIEF Youth Day 2024
All the winners of the #WEARETOGETHER international prize will receive
commemorative diplomas with invitations to take part in the Youth Day of the
St. Petersburg International Economic Forum (SPIEF), which will take place on 8
June 2024. The awards ceremony took place as part of the #WEARETOGETHER
International Forum of Civil Participation during the International RUSSIA EXPO
at VDNH in Moscow.
The #WEARETOGETHER prize is an extension of the #WEARETOGETHER mutual
assistance campaign and a nationwide platform that helps to identify, promote,
and encourage leaders of socially significant initiatives that aim to help
people and improve the quality of life in Russia and around the world. The
Roscongress Foundation is a partner of the prize.
On Volunteer Day, which Russia celebrates on 5 December, Roscongress
Foundation Chairman of the Board and CEO Alexander Stuglev noted the importance
of the activities of volunteers and their contribution to society. Particular
attention was paid to the winners of the #WEARETOGETHER international prize,
who received awards as part of the International Forum of Civil Participation.
“Participation in the Youth Day of the key congress, exhibition, and
business platform in Russia will enable the winners of the #WEARETOGETHER prize
to not only talk about their success stories, projects, and ideas, but to also
take full part in the SPIEF business programme, meet with government officials,
businessmen, and leaders of major companies and corporations, and engage in an
in-person dialogue with them. I firmly believe that for young people this is
the best start and a unique opportunity to immerse themselves in the business
environment and its atmosphere. The young people who won the #WEARETOGETHER
prizes absolutely deserve to be and should be at the SPIEF. Their work and
their initiatives are the best demonstration that anything is possible,”
Special QR codes from the Roscongress Foundation’s augmented reality
service MARMA are integrated into the diplomas that were awarded to the prize
winners. The code can be used to find out detailed information about the
activities of the Foundation and its social initiatives.
One of these projects –
‘School Friend’ – will be presented by its author and coordinator Ilya Gulidin,
who will take part in the trend session ‘Volunteering: A Method to Raise a
Harmoniously Developed Personality’ on 6 December. During the session, he will
talk about the Foundation’s social project to promote the socialization and
adaptation of children and adolescents who find themselves in difficult life
situations by integrating them into the cultural environment and creating
additional educational opportunities.
The #WEARETOGETHER International
Forum of Civil Participation is being held in Moscow on 4–8 December. The business programme includes panel
sessions, strategic sessions, discussions, and master classes with more than
150 speakers – opinion leaders, heads of non-commercial and volunteer
organizations, and representatives of commercial companies and the media.
The #WEARETOGETHER International
Forum of Civil Participation is the main event in volunteering and social
leadership. In 2023, the Forum has become part of the International RUSSIA
EXPO, a major platform that presents the country’s main achievements, technological
developments, scientific discoveries, and key successes in the industrial,
social, sports, and cultural sectors. The forum will provide an opportunity to
link all the achievements of the regions, companies, and communities with their
contribution to the overall success of volunteering and public leadership.
