Informal results of the Rosatom's exhibition stand operation have been summarized after the end of the World Youth Festival 2024


The Rosatom's stand was working with the maximum load during seven days of the World Youth Festival that was held March 1-7 at the Sirius Federal Territory. The exposition of Russian atomic industry representatives extending over 2,000 sq. m was visited by 12K+ of the Festival participants from 180 countries of the world; 8K more students attended 120 events (conferences and workshops) held by the Rosatom's managers and experts. According to hosts, the stand visitors have drunk up 2.4K+ liters of tea cooked by using recipes from Rosatom's countries of operation, and have taken 1.5K selfies with the atomic fleet captains.


Among of the Festival key events is the lecture “Atomic Technologies for Sustainable Development” presented by the Rosatom's Director General Alexey Likhachev, that opened the educational marathon “Znanie.Pervye” of the All-Russian Society “Znanie”, and the selection of experts for the Rosatom's Arctic expedition to the North Pole. The expedition members will be 15 persons representing eight countries, including Uzbekistan, Cameroon, Bangladesh, Tunisia, Belarus and Russia. Ivan Kurbatov and Aleksandr Skryabin, captains of the Ural and the Arktika atomic icebreakers, gave certificates to finalists.

“Being at the Festival is an extraordinary opportunity, especially for us as the future generation [of leaders]. We were lucky to meet many experts representing a wide spectrum of business, science, and arts, and to speak with people from different countries of the World. The future has already come, and we decide what it will look like”, noted Uwase Ange Foavienne, a bachelor course student with NRNU MEPhI from Rwanda.
