Friends for Leadership Community to Participate in EEF 2022

Friends for Leadership, an international community of opinion leaders and entrepreneurs will present joint initiatives and projects in the area of sustainable development at the 7th Eastern Economic Forum, which will take place on 5–8 September in Vladivostok. Community members from 15 countries will participate in business and youth programme sessions at the EEF 2022 and meet with potential investors and partners from the ranks of Russian and foreign leaders in business and finance.

“We are pleased to invite conscientious young people from different countries, including BRICS, SCO, CIS, ASEAN, APEC, African and Latin American countries, to participate in the Eastern Economic Forum. New knowledge, contacts, friendships and partnerships gained at Roscongress events will help young people become future world leaders and complete their projects to change the world for the better in the context of implementing the 2030 UN Sustainable Development Goals,” said Anton Kobyakov, Advisor to the President of the Russian Federation and Executive Secretary of the Eastern Economic Forum Organizing Committee.

The Forum will present projects and initiatives of the participants on such topics as sustainable development and energy, climate change and environmental protection, post-crisis recovery, as well as innovations in education, science, and technology. The projects are already in the implementation stage and have the potential to be scaled in Russia.

Friends for Leadership is a permanent international pool of foreign youth involved in the promotion of multilateral economic and humanitarian projects. The community was developed in 2018 through the joint efforts of the Centre for International Promotion of National Initiatives Foundation and the Roscongress Foundation at SPIEF. It now brings together project teams from more than 100 countries working to scale their solutions in 23 project groups, including the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals through 2030.

Over 100 leaders and entrepreneurs from India, China, Japan, Bangladesh, USA, Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan, Armenia, Belarus, Serbia, Nepal, Indonesia, Pakistan, Republic of Korea, Uruguay, Switzerland, Nigeria, Peru, Chile, Philippines, Croatia, Italy, Kazakhstan and Russia participated in EEF events in 2018–2021.
