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.
The competition Sochi 2035 – The Image of the Future through the Eyes of the Young is a great opportunity for students and graduates from both Russian and foreign universities to represent their ideas on this matter.
The aim of the organizers of the contest is to see the advanced options for the post-Olympic development of Sochi, to attract global attention as well as investors to the prospects of the resort city, and to increase the interest of young people to play an active role in its life.
While attracting creative young people from different countries, expanding the number of events and participants the exhibition of finalists’ projects of the contest can become one of the brightest events of the XIX World Festival of Youth and Students in 2017. The results of the exhibition will bring a new impulse to the development of Sochi. In dedication of the Festival the winners of the Contest a new Park with the Mira Alley (Alley of Peace) will be created.
I invite you to participate in the international architecture and urban planning competition for youth Sochi 2035 – Image of the Future through the Eyes of the Young in preparation for the XIX world festival of youth and students in Sochi.
The Deputy of the Parliament
of Russian Federation
