Youth Day at the International Arctic Forum
Russia’s Federal Agency for Youth Affairs (Rosmolodezh) is co-organizing a Youth Day on 8 April at the ‘Arctic: Territory of Dialogue’ International Arctic Forum.
Building communication is the fundamental idea of the forum’s entire Youth Day programme. Youth Day will kick off with a networking session in a unique format that combines networking and education. Participants will be able to get to know each other, share their experience, and socialize with people from the business and science communities.
During the Youth Day business programme, the participants will discuss prospects and problems inherent in developing oil and gas fields in the Arctic, the role of alternative energy in the development of the Arctic, environmental activities among young people in the North, infrastructure development in the Far North, opportunities for self-fulfilment and career growth for young people, and support for youth entrepreneurship in the Arctic.
“The main job of the Federal Agency for Youth Affairs is to maximize opportunities for the self-fulfilment of young people in our country and help them in the activities that are now in demand. The participation of young people in such major international events helps to achieve this goal”, Rosmolodezh Director Alexander Bugayev said.
Leading scientists from the Kurchatov Institute Research Center will hold lectures on the environmental and radiation situation in the region, the processing and recycling of municipal solid waste, bioenergy, and life-support technologies, among other things.
The Mentor Lounge will be open to students, entrepreneurs, and specialists at the Rosmolodezh booth over the entire duration of the Forum. Experienced mentors will help diagnose problems faced by young entrepreneurs and find solutions for business.
Graduates from the ‘Arctic. Made in Russia’ International Youth Educational Forum 2017 will take active part in the Youth Day.

The ‘Arctic: Territory of Dialogue’ Forum was first held in 2010 and was devoted to contemporary problems of the Arctic region. The second forum was held in 2011 and focused on issues of developing transport systems in the Arctic. In 2013the key themes considered included environmental protection, while in 2017 the Forum’s theme was ‘People and the Arctic’. The key theme of the forthcoming 5th International Arctic Forum will be ‘The Arctic: An Ocean of Opportunity’. Three pillars will form the basis of the business programme: ‘Coastal Regions’, ‘The Open Ocean’, and ‘Sustainable Development’.
