The Positive Energy of Young People
On the Youth section of the Second Eurasian Women's Forum
The open debate ‘The Positive Energy of Young People’ will take place as a part of the Second Eurasian Women's Forum. Yelena Afanasyeva, Deputy Chair of the Federation Council Committee on Constitutional Legislation and State Building, spoke about its preparation. The senator takes an active part in the organization of the section.
For the first time the Forum hosts the youth section. Its participants will be socially active young ladies. During the meeting, they will discuss the existing modern mechanisms of supporting and promoting the ideas put forward by girls and young women, and share personal advancement practices.
Yelena Afanasyeva noted that many young women taking part in this section are interested in issues related to their future. They need to understand how they can stay engaged in public life when they start their career, get married, have a child. In this regard, the senator states, the meeting needs to focus on the mechanisms of maintaining a social component in the life of a woman.
Yelena Afanasyeva also proposed to touch upon the topic of women mentoring during the discussion.
The participants of the Second Eurasian Women’s Forum are positive examples for girls and young women as they inspire creativity and pro-active attitude in different spheres.
The Federal Agency for Youth Affairs of the Russian Federation, non-profit organization Russian Union of Youth, and the Chamber of Young Legislators under the Federation Council will support the open discussion.
