Department of Public and External Relations of the Khanty-Mansiysk Autonomous Okrug – Ugra informs:
On December 7-8, the 4th International Humanitarian Forum “Civil Initiatives of the Regions of the 60th Parallel” will be held in Ugra.
For a few days, the industrial capital of Ugra will become a unique platform for interaction and exchange of experience for representatives of the non-profit sector, business and government. The Forum participants will discuss issues of public control and human rights activities, share ideas of involving the population in local self-governance, and present best practices of civic initiatives. The program of the Forum includes a plenary session, foresight sessions, lectures, panel discussions, a training workshop as well as the award ceremony for the winners of the competition of socially significant projects and successful civil practices “2019 Recognition Prize.”
The Forum is organized by the District Department for Public and External Relations, the District Public Chamber and the Foundation “Ugra Centre for Civil and Social Initiatives.”
It should be noted that the first forum of civil initiatives was held in Khanty-Mansiysk in 2016. Even then, the forum participants presented the best practices for the development of the social services market, volunteering and the common digital space. At the same time, they adopted the Charter for Civil Participation in the Development of the Arctic and Northern Regions, which is still being followed today.
The philosophy of the Forum is based on geographical fact: regions of Russia and the state located in close proximity to the 60th parallel to the northern latitude, form a conditional “necklace” of exciting ideas and projects. The organizers of the Forum are convinced that the development of communication between people living in the vast northern spaces, as well as a creative approach to activity can change the world for the better: to influence the development of economy and politics, education and culture, traditional crafts and modern technologies, to identify ways of solving urgent social problems.
Registration is open on the Forum website.
