On January 21 was held an extended meeting of the working group of the Council of the Federation of the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation for cooperation with the organizers of the XIX World Festival of Youth and Students.

For the first time the desire of our country to return the Youth Festival once again was expressed in document by the upper chamber of the Russian Parliament. Russian senators from profile committees and representatives of profile ministries and agencies, such as the Department for Education and Science of the Ministry of Culture of Russia, the Federal Agency for Nationality Affairs, the Department for Humanitarian Cooperation and Human Rights of the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, are actively getting involved in the work on preparation for the biggest youth event of 2017.

During the meeting the participants were able to discuss the key points of discussion, cultural and sports programs, stages of selection of participants and volunteers, logistics issues. Among the agenda issues – financing regions for participation in the Festival and including the Chamber of young legislators of the Council of Federation into the work. The participants also actively offered their ideas to be added in the discussion program of the Festival, including the involvement of young people of the country in the development of the state development strategy.

«It is essentially important that during the preparation of such a large-scale event the principle of effective interdepartmental cooperation should be the basis of all processes. That's why we rely on your experience and your support.  We are able to make this Festival no less bright and memorable than those that our country has already hosted earlier. To make it interesting for young people, useful and filled with interesting ideas» - emphasized the Acting Head of the Federal Agency for Youth Affairs Alexei Palamarchuk.
