It has been 60 years since the VI Festival of Youth and Students in Moscow, and Russia welcomes again young people from around the world for the XIX World Festival of Youth and Students, which will be held in Sochi, in October of 2017.
The symbol of the festival – the dove of peace – embodies the desire of youth of all the continents to communicate, and calls for mutual understanding in shaping the common future of the planet.
Sochi is the longest city in Europe, the best health and resort city in Russia, the capital of the 22nd Winter Olympic Games, and the 11th Paralympic Games. From October 16 to 21 of 2017 our resort city hosts the XIX World Festival of Youth and Students. The city will become a center of attraction for talented young people from all over the world and a place of energy concentration, senses, and ideas of the future.
We are pleased to invite you to participate in the international architecture and urban planning competition for youth Sochi 2035 – The Image of the Future through the Eyes of the Young, which will be held in Sochi during the XIX World Festival of Youth and Students. The final arrangements of the competition are included in the Festival’s educational program Planning the Future: Architecture and Design. The winners of the competition – 78 young architects, designers, environmental scientists, sociologists – will become participants of the Festival.
The main goal of the competition is to see the future image of Sochi as a resort city as well as the way to its realization in creative ideas of youth from around the world.
