The forum will also include round tables and discussion platforms, an exhibition of achievements in youth programmes by Russia, Tatarstan and the international partners, a foresight session on changes in the youth community, and visits to youth centres and sports facilities.

The Global Youth Summit, held for the second year in a row, takes place in the capital of Tatarstan from August 28-30. Last year, Kazan was awarded the title ‘Youth Capital of the Organisation of Islamic Co-operation 2022’.
