Young Governor's School

Recently, a trend has emerged in Russia for projects aimed at identifying and training competent young leaders. Well-trained specialists are needed in any field, and such initiatives could not bypass managerial positions. Involving the younger generation in entrepreneurship and public administration issues will make it possible to form people in the future who will be able to solve any problems, already having experience and knowledge. One of such events aimed at preparing the younger generation for management is an open conversation between EEF Junior participants and the heads of Russian regions, where they can ask topical questions.
- How to become a governor?
- What does it take to set the right goal? and how to get there?
- Is it easy to be a governor?
- Where to study to become a governor?
- What personal qualities should a manager have?

Panel discussion

Reserving Personnel from School: Focus on the East

Supported by Udokan Copper

Over the past three decades, there has been a rapid decline in the share of young people in the Russian Far East due to migration outflow from 24.4% in 1990 to 18.6% in 2018. In the Far East, the process of reducing the share of young people in the structure of the population is going on more intensively than the average for Russia - by 5.8%, while in Russia - by 4.3%. During the session, issues of forming mechanisms for “retaining” young people and increasing the attractiveness of the region for schoolchildren will be discussed in order to continue their education at universities in the region, and then work at enterprises in the Far East.
- The image of the Far East as a “silicon valley” for schoolchildren. What attracts schoolchildren to stay in the region: a strong university, interesting projects, class work?
- Is the university brand important in the life of a student in the Far East? The role of the university in the life of a student;
- Career in the region: the image of employers in the Far East among students and graduates;
- Industries in which Far Eastern graduates work;
Agro-industrial complex: a demanded industry for graduates;
- Migration of highly qualified personnel to the Far East: career and life opportunities.
