The New Generation program implemented by Rossotrudnichestvo provides you with a unique opportunity not only to visit and discover Russia, but also to establish professional contacts and build long-term partnerships with Russian state and non-state structures, youth and public organizations.

What is “New Generation"?

It is the leading youth presidential program, which has been implemented by Rossotrudnichestvo Federal Agency since 2011 on an annual basis. The program aims to create conditions for a sustainable dialogue between young professionals from Russia and other countries. In the framework of this Program, young representatives of public circles, the media, diplomacy, science and culture from various countries take part in various events in Russia, which include international educational forums, training and special sessions, as well as sports and cultural events. Over the past 9 years, over 7,000 active young leaders from more than 130 countries took part in the program of short-term educational trips to Russia.

Each ‘shift’ of the program is a unique event with its individual business and cultural agenda, developed by Rossotrudnichestvo in close cooperation with a wide range of partners. It includes meetings with prominent representatives of science and culture, leading news agencies, visits to government bodies and public organizations, as well as a rich cultural program.
