Fresh prospective of problems and challenges. The concept of the Eurasian Women's Forum 2021 was announced.

Organizing Committee of the third Eurasian Women's Forum, which is scheduled for autumn 2021, decided on the concept and program of a large-scale international event.

Today, politics and economics have a need for reset, a fresh prospective of problems and challenges, and that is why the role of women, who are able to bring novelty in these processes, is significantly growing. It is no coincidence that the EWF program will be aimed at promoting young talented girls and educating them as leaders.

'The subject of the Forum 'Women: a global mission in a new reality' is in line with current international agenda. I believe that our discussion priority should be increasing contribution of women to economy, digital transformation, to development of healthcare and resolving problems of ecology, that is, to those areas, where women can achieve very high results,' Valentina Matvienko, Chairperson of the Federation Council of the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation said at the opening the meeting participants of the EWF Organizing Committee.

In addition, women can play an important role in peaceful resolution of conflicts: the UN declared 2021st the International Year of Peace and Trust.

As Deputy Chairperson of the Federation Council Galina Karelova said, among the key topics of the business part of the Forum are: 'Inter-parliamentary dialogue. Women's Mission in Development of Diplomacy of Peace and Trust', 'Social Changes 2030. Women's Mission in Achieving Inclusive Sustainable Development', 'Digital World. Points of Growth and Opportunities for Women', 'Women's Strategic Mission: Together for a Healthy Present and Future', 'Women for Preservation of the Planet: Creating Our Future'.

During the discussion of the event concept, a proposal was made to pay attention to the role of women in global healthcare in the face of epidemiological threats and from the prospective of alternative ways of organizing labor using IT. According to Deputy Chairperson of the Government of the Russian Federation Tatyana Golikova, various forms of remote work already contribute to professional development of women.

In addition, Deputy Minister of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation Gulnaz Kadyrova proposed to organize Creative Lounge within the framework of the EWF: a single space that unites immersive exhibition of products of folk crafts in collaboration with modern Russian designers. A similar platform was successfully presented at Russian creative week, which recently took place in Moscow. .

'An expert session 'Heritage Based Creative Industry: Development Factors and the Role of Women' will be organized, as analysis of global trends prove that this area is growing faster compared to other sectors of the economy,' Gulnaz Kadyrova said.

Since the ideas of the Forum are in line with the social agenda, which is a sphere of activities of Roskongress Foundation and its social platform — the Innosocium Foundation, the data of the organizations will also take an active part in preparation of events of the third Eurasian Women's Forum.
