The Roscongress Foundation will present its social, youth, educational, and technological initiatives at the International Forum of civic involvement #WeAreTogether, which will take place from 4 to 7 December 2022 in Moscow. The stand will be dedicated both to the Foundation’s projects created to solve socially oriented tasks (the School Friend social project, the RC Skills inclusivity project, the KLUCH.PRO educational platform, and MARMA augmented reality project) and other projects supported by the Roscongress Foundation (the Country Potential testing platform, the WeAreTogether nationwide hotline, and the Right Direction charity medical care search service).
“Building trust is the main goal and value, which the Foundation confidently embodies in its initiatives and projects. Only through a caring attitude and joint efforts in various fields – science, business, charity, education and media – can we make a meaningful contribution to society. We encourage you to visit our stand and become part of the ecosystem by supporting our initiatives. We provide a space for dialogue and good deeds, where trust and understanding between people is built. It is a beautiful task that allows us to excel,” said Alexander Stuglev, Chairman and CEO of the Roscongress Foundation.
The heart of the stand will be the augmented reality themed AR photo zone, created especially for the event by the MARMA project team. In the photo zone, you will be able to take spectacular photos and videos with a 3D augmented reality heart, as well as record a video greeting from the venue and receive a small gift from AR. MARMA is an augmented reality service that allows you to add virtual objects (3D models and videos) to the real world. The service is used to promote projects, helping to extend and surprise audiences by blurring the boundaries between imagination and everyday life.
For the first time in the history of the #WeAreTogether International Awards, diplomas will be awarded using modern interactive technologies: the winners of the thematic tracks Business and Non-Profits will be able to watch a video recording of their award directly on the diploma, but in augmented reality. Diplomas are provided by the Roscongress Foundation and will enable their holders to participate in SPIEF Youth Day 2023 free of charge. And as part of the Paper Bird support campaign for hospice patients, everyone will be able to record video of New Year’s wishes, which will be attached to AR cards and sent to the recipients at the hospice.
“When moving towards goals, it is important to build and maintain strong partnerships and build strong relationships with colleagues. We are grateful to Roscongress for the long-term cooperation and for creating so many useful and important activities on the #WeAreTogether Forum platform. I am sure that Forum guests will visit our colleagues’ stand with pleasure and interest and will take memorable pictures. At the same time, the impressive innovation in the form of ‘live’ diplomas of #WeAreTogether Prize winners will become a unique symbol of the project,” Artyom Metelev, shared the Chairman of the State Duma Committee on Youth Policy, Head of the Association of Volunteer Centres and the DOBRO.RF platform.
The Roscongress Foundation stand will host daily project presentations, master classes, quizzes, and discussions with guest speakers. The following important topics will be discussed:
- mentoring for young people;
- overcoming social barriers and ensuring equal opportunities for people with disabilities;
- training of strong leaders and introduction of business tools in volunteer and charity projects;
- assisting students and young professionals in career guidance and building their careers;
- promotion of educational and public projects by means of modern technologies, etc.
