Multilingualism in Cyberspace. The National Trajectory of Creative Industries

2021 is the International Year of the Creative Economy for Sustainable Development.
2022–2032 is the International Decade of Indigenous Languages

Creative industries are a sector of the economy that unites creative businesses, many of which reflect and promote the values of local communities as well as preserve and promote heritage and traditions. Creative industries are able to create new meanings and values where different themes and disciplines intersect and draw increasing attention to things in the world that might otherwise go unnoticed.
Language plays a decisive role in everyday life, communication, education, and social integration. But language is also a repository of the unique identity, folklore, history, traditions, and memory of each person. Of the nearly 7,000 languages that exist, most are indigenous languages, which represent much of the world’s cultural diversity. Many of these languages are gradually disappearing, which is tantamount to the loss of some of the cultural diversity and the ecological, economic, and socio-cultural contribution that they make to our world.
We can preserve languages and develop linguistic and cultural diversity in part through creative industries that invent new things both in the space of traditions and in cyberspace.
- What projects to preserve indigenous languages already exist in cyberspace? What is the potential for the development of such projects?
- What projects can be implemented at the federal, regional, and municipal levels?
- Which of the existing approaches will be in demand? Reading contests in indigenous languages? Supporting indigenous writers, bloggers, authors, and performers? How can these approaches be encouraged and developed?
- What support is needed for federal and regional sectoral research working on ethnic materials?

Joint Session of the VEB.RF State Development Corporation and the Friends for Leadership Programme of Young Leaders and Entrepreneurs on the Theme: ‘Projects – Emotions’

What is a modern and comfortable city? It has new public transport, clean water, uninterrupted power supply, and green walking areas. It offers highly qualified jobs in various industries with decent wages as well as the opportunity for residents to enjoy their time after work and on weekends.
Each of these components directly affects the mood of residents and their level of happiness. VEB.RF is already working with the country’s largest cities on matters concerning the urban economy. But today we understand that it is also essential to fill cities with emotions, so we decided to launch ‘Projects-Emotions’.
Together with representatives of the Friends for Leadership international community of leaders and entrepreneurs, we will discuss such projects and initiatives as well as mechanisms for sharing and implementing best practices.

Children’s Health: Enhancing the Effectiveness of Healthcare

Session sponsored by Vernoe Napravlenie ANPO

In an effort to be more efficient, the healthcare system is constantly looking for new approaches to protecting children’s health, including approaches that require more attention and specific care. One way to develop healthcare is a comprehensive multidisciplinary approach, which not only ensures that a patient interacts with doctors with multiple areas of expertise, but also specialists in related profiles, such as social workers, teachers, or psychologists, and this ensures the best result. A multidisciplinary team demonstrates a high level of efficiency in cases where it is essential to optimize the diagnosis and treatment processes, find an unconventional approach, reduce the risks of complications, and form a comprehensive strategy for long-term care. Children with severe and sometimes incurable diagnoses continue to live, and any approach to helping such children should cover all facets of life, including not only helping the child, but also providing the whole family with the necessary support. However, in practice, the specialists one needs are not always available, and the actions of the interested parties are often not coordinated.
• How should we build an optimal healthcare system that takes into account the interests of all parties and, above all, patients?
• What problems are hindering the integration of an interdisciplinary approach into everyday medical practice and how can we eliminate interdepartmental barriers to introducing the principle of multidisciplinary interaction?
• Which countries have a standard practice of using multidisciplinary teams to care for seriously ill children? How can we transfer multidisciplinary practices to Russia?
• What successful multidisciplinary approach practices are used in Russia, including in the regions of the Far Eastern Federal District?
• How and where should we organize the training of specialists of multidisciplinary teams?
• How can we attract the necessary personnel and get them settled in the regions?

The Far East on a Course for 2030: Allocating the Responsibilities of Government, Business, and Society

Russia will be unable to achieve its National Development Goals without joining the efforts of the state, business, and NPOs. According to various estimates, when making financial decisions, 70–95% of institutional investors take into account the risks and risk-prevention actions of companies in management, the environment, and the social sector. Almost 86% of them note that they feel pressure and expectations from the public. Recently, two systems of target indicators have been provided for the efforts of companies, public organizations, and the state: the UN SDG agenda and the list of Russia’s National Development Goals. But what progress has the Far Eastern Federal District made and what is the action plan for the next nine years?
- Russia’s National Development Goals and the UN SDGs: What is the best way to align the expectations, actions, and resources of the state, business, and society?
- Who is encouraging responsible consumption and a sustainable lifestyle among residents of the Far East today and how?
- Why is it important to involve business in the social development of the state?
