The main theme of the assembly, which will be held on 3 November, is “The Mission of the Russian Word in a Multipolar World”
On the eve of the Day of National Unity, the Russian World Foundation is holding the XV Assembly of the Russian World. The purpose of the international forum is to discuss the problems of preserving the values, ideals and basic principles of the Russian World, promoting the Russian language and multiplying the cultural and historical heritage in a changing world.
The main theme of the assembly, which will be held on 3 November 2023 in Moscow, is “The Mission of the Russian Word in a Multipolar World”. This year’s event will bring together Russian language teachers from leading foreign universities, researchers of Russian literature, translators, public figures, cultural and scientific figures, journalists and bloggers who write and broadcast in Russian, diplomats, heads of organisations of Russian compatriots living abroad, representatives of the clergy, and youth communities. Many will be participating in this forum for the first time.
Thousands of people who share the ideals and values of the Russian world will have the opportunity to watch the work of the assembly online. There will be a plenary session “The Mission of the Russian Word in a Multipolar World”, as well as a number of round tables on the problems of the Russian language and culture:
“Russian literature as a guide of traditional universal values”;
“International movement of Russophiles: popularisation of the Russian language and culture”;
“How to increase interest in studying Russian abroad?”.
The last round table will be held with the participation of Tamara Skok, Director of the Department of Innovative Linguistic Projects of TV BRICS, Head of the International Project “Modern Russian”, who will tell the assembly participants about the activities of the TV BRICS Media Network in the field of promoting the Russian language and culture abroad.
Cycles of cultural TV programmes introducing Russian cities, documentaries about the life and work of Russian writers, language and country studies teleconferences with leading BRICS universities, videos about the Russian language, news and educational portals – all this allows TV BRICS to carry out systematic work to preserve the values of Russian culture in foreign media space.
According to Tamara Skok, the presentation of this experience in the assembly format will allow participants from different countries to learn more about the possibilities of TV BRICS and, if they wish, to join the work of the international media network and create new joint projects in the field of education and culture.
