On Thursday the 9th of September, Federal Agency for Youth Affairs in collaboration with Ulyanovsk region government and «Russia – BRICS» International Youth Cooperation Project Office will launch one of the largest international youth events in 2021 – the BRICS Youth Camp. It is noted that it will run in three shifts, when over 100 delegates and volunteers from Brazil, Russia, India, China and the Republic of South Africa will participate. The concept of the camp involves practical work in three areas: Business accelerator, creative industries and volunteering. Throughout this work the participants will form practical solutions to problems relevant to international cooperation.

It's not its first time to receive BRICS events (in 2018 there was a «time capsule» was laid here within the BRICS countries young leaders seminar framework), but the «Russkiy Bereg» eco-park transformation into BRICS countries smart city-park concept makes it an international point of attraction not just for generating new ideas, but also for practical realisation of those on the spot. Therefore, development and presentation of the BRICS countries smart city-park concept by the participants and experts, will be an important part of the programme. The building of the park has been announced for 2022.

These are the real cases of young guys representing these businesses. It is a check of our steps and search for further partners», Ivshina emphasised.
