Events held as part of the festival, which is taking place in the Olympic Park in Sochi, have brought together some 25,000 young people from 188 countries. Five thousand volunteers from Russia and 76 other countries helped to organise the largest youth event of the year.
During the festival week, students and young experts from every continent have been discussing issues such as global politics and international security, industry and the future economy, and the environment. Each day of the festival was dedicated to one of the world’s macroregions: America, the Middle East, Asia and Oceania, and Europe. The festival will hold Russia Day on October 21.
