Applications are now being accepted to take part in the 10th Nevsky International Ecological Congress, which will be held on 25–26 May 2023 at the Tauride Palace in St. Petersburg. The main theme of the Congress this year is ‘Ecology: A Right, Not a Privilege’.
The conditions for participation and the procedure for the submission and consideration of applications are available on the Congress’s official website. The participant package is provided free of charge and includes participation in all events of the business programme on 25–26 May, free access to business networking areas, and information support. The Congress events will be held in a mixed format with both in-person and remote participation using video conferencing and simultaneous interpreting. The participation package does not grant the right to attend the Congress’s plenary session, for which a special invitation is required. Access to events by special invitation and areas where such events are held is also limited.
The Nevsky International Ecological Congress is a key platform for shaping the environmental agenda. As part of an open international dialogue, the Congress will provide an opportunity to discuss the most pressing and relevant environmental issues as well as strengthen inter-parliamentary cooperation in ensuring environmental safety and harmonizing environmental legislation.
“Protecting the environment is a problem that countries must seriously and jointly address, regardless of political affiliations. This year, the Congress’s extensive business programme will cover a wide range of the most pressing scientific and practical environmental issues in Russia and around the world. Participants will be provided with all the conditions needed to work effectively,” said Anton Kobyakov, Adviser to the Russian President and Executive Secretary of the Organizing Committee of the 10th Nevsky International Ecological Congress.
The Congress is being organized by the Russian Federation Council, the Inter-Parliamentary Assembly of the CIS Member States, and the Russian Ministry of Natural Resources and the Environment. The Roscongress Foundation is in charge of preparing for and holding the event.
