Conference 2017

The event will unite Russian and foreign experts and practitioners. They will discuss the most relevant problems of elderly people in Russia and in the whole world. The key topics in 2017 are: how to live a full life in adulthood and what can prevent it; how to create an effective assistance system for the elderly by the family, society and state services.

In 2017 the Society for All Ages National Conference will be held for the fifth time. Public authorities, businessmen, non-profit organizations, journalists, doctors, writers, artists, social workers will get together to share their ideas and develop new ways to address the needs of senior people. The results of this work will make a real contribution to the elderly people support system under state guidance.

Each year the agenda includes the most urgent aspects of aging in Russia. The main task in 2017 is to discuss the importance of old people for the state, society and family.

Maria Morozova, Timchenko Foundation, CEO: “Real conditions for active long life in Russia may be created only after recognising the value of old people for the society. To give the right answer to the question “What are the best ways to render assistance and to interact?” it is important to understand, who needs assistance and what it should be like. At the conference we will analyse in this context the most important problems that affect the quality of life of the older generation.”

How do the state and the society perceive the older generation? Is the attitude to age changing in our country and how does it influence the quality of life and self-perception of old people of the 21st century? What role do social and hi-tech changes play? The participants will discuss these and other topics at the plenary discussion, workshops and thematic sessions.

The conference will be held on 5—6 October in the international multimedia press-centre of MIA Rossiya Segodnya (4 Zubovskiy bulvar, Moscow). The Ministry of Labour and Social Protection of the Russian Federation (Mintrud), The Ministry of Industry and Trade (Minpromtorg), the Elena and Gennady Timchenko Charitable Foundation and a number of Russian and international organizations give support to the conference.
