Demographic trends and social policy priorities in the Russian Federation are making the implementation of active ageing concepts an increasingly urgent priority. By introducing the older generation of today to healthy and active lifestyles, to creative and social self-fulfilment, and to financial and legal literacy, we will not only address the needs of modern society, but also lay the foundations for future harmonious development and for safeguarding economic and social engagement among the public. Within this context, it is essential to identify the most effective ways to facilitate the development of an active lifestyle among the older generation, including those already tried and tested through pilot projects, and to put in place the conditions for these to be rolled out throughout Russia.
• Initial results of pilot active ageing projects
• What plans are being made regionally to support the Older Generation programme, and what are the opinions of government bodies, non-profits, and experts?
• How can we ensure that effective active ageing practices are shared between the regions?

The last two decades have seen social enterprise succeed in blurring the boundaries between the concepts of business and charity, and in creating an entirely new culture of enterprise, which enables profits to be made alongside the far more significant objective of addressing socially important issues. Social businesses can be small, local enterprises or major companies, like the world’s best known social organization, the Aravind Eye Care System in India, but all of these businesses combine a commitment to innovation, constant organizational development to support the achievement of great results, a readiness to learn new things, and adherence to social values. As is the case throughout the world, social entrepreneurs in Russia could partner with the government, business, and the third sector to address issues in healthcare, education, social welfare, culture, and the environment as conduits for innovative technologies and effective socially-oriented business models. What needs to be done in order to make this possible?
• In what areas of social development is social enterprise developing the most rapidly?
• Successful projects by social entrepreneurs: what is their secret? How can their experience benefit the third sector, big business, and state social organizations?
• What regional support measures can government bodies, big business, and development institutions offer social entrepreneurs? Which of these measures does the experience of entrepreneurs themselves indicate to be the most effective?
• How can a mechanism be built to replicate social enterprise initiatives? What are the prospects for creating a community of social entrepreneurs to exchange of experience and business case studies?

The topic of volunteering in Russia is receiving increasing amounts of attention and its development is gathering pace. In 2018, volunteering reached a new level: the Year of the Volunteer was declared, a programme was created to accelerate training and development for those behind the most successful projects in the Volunteer of Russia competition, the Russian Volunteers’ Forum, which is held in Russia every year, received international status, a federal Social Activism project was drawn up, aiming to support volunteering with RUB 7.4 billion of funding over six years, and a unified standard for corporate volunteering is now being devised by the Civic Chamber of the Russian Federation. The increasing involvement of the population in volunteering initiatives offers significant potential for the development of Russia’s social economy. By bringing together active and engaged citizens, local volunteers’ associations can become a source of creative and socially important initiatives aimed primarily at developing their own regions. What needs to be done to create a fully-fledged ecosystem for the volunteer movement?
• How do discussion participants assess the outcomes of Russia’s Year of the Volunteer?
• What conditions have already been put in place to promote the institution of volunteering and create the required infrastructure, and which need further work?
• What are the current trends in corporate volunteering?
• In what areas could international cooperation be organized?
