The role of youth in the innovative development of the city: a new project of the Centre for Youth studies
The focus will be on young professionals from the regions involved in creative industries and contributing to the development of their cities. Creative industries include cultural heritage, art, media industry and functional creativity.
Moving to a new city often leads to temporary loneliness and a loss of familiar surroundings. This means that young people who move to a new place must find ways to adapt quickly. Can loneliness become a resourceful state, or does it suppress resourcefulness? Sociologists from HSE University-St Petersburg and Kazan Federal University (KFU) discussed this issue during the seminar 'SOC Up', which was based on research conducted as part of the Mirror Laboratory initiative.
The project " The choice of life strategies by talented young people and their role in enhancing the competitiveness of Russian regions as a response to global challenges of the "brain drain" is supported within the 2021 call for proposals for grants from the Russian Science Foundation "Conducting basic research and exploratory scientific research by individual scientific groups". Congratulations!
The project " Anti-crisis Potential of Youth Policies in Russia and Europe in the Era of Global Risks: National Imaginary, Patriotism and Social Engagement" is almost over. In the course of the project, researchers conducted a comparative analysis of youth policies achieving anti-crisis solutions in Germany, Finland, Great Britain, Greece, and Russia. The results of the study were presented at seminars, conferences, and roundtables dedicated to youth and youth policy.
In frame of the seminar Dr. Marta Fanasca, new international research fellow of the Centre for Youth Studies, will present her research.
