MUNRFE HAS CONDUCTED A FORUM "RUSSIA ON THE WAY TO SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT"
On May 14, MUNRFE organized the "Russia on the Way to Sustainable Development: Inclusive and Equitable Quality Education" forum in partnership with the Far Eastern Branch of the Russkiy Mir Foundation.
The event was conducted in a hybrid format. It started with the Plenary Session where participants were introduced to the agenda of the forum. After the opening remarks, they proceeded to group work in three thematic sessions: "The impact of the COVID-19 on education in Russia", "Elimination of illiteracy in Russia" and "Russia's contribution to the development of science and culture abroad."
12 groups of participants have explored the root causes of the problems of illiteracy, brain drain, lack of teachers in remote areas, promotion of higher education institutions, and access to digital technologies. Later all groups presented their solutions to everyone during the closing remarks. The proposals varied from special education programs for disabled children to the elimination of gender-based stereotypes and ways to encourage young people to get higher education.
MUNRFE thanks the participants and partners of the event and expresses its hope for further productive collaborations.
