The Soobshchestvo forum was established by the Russian Civic Chamber. The two-day forum will be attended by over 3,500 people, including civil activists, representatives of socially-oriented NGOs, social entrepreneurs, and representatives of the expert and business communities, state authorities of the Russian regions and local government bodies.
This year, the main focus of the forum is on the integrated development of civil society: its links with the government, business and interaction between civil organisations.
At the forum, the President will meet with the winners of the My Project for My Country! contest of socially significant projects and the winners of the first contest of the Presidential Grants Fund.
