National Youth Council of Russia

The National Youth Council of Russia (National Council) is an association of NGOs that serves as a system of coordination and consultation for youth and children organisations.

The National Youth Council of Russia was founded in 1992 on the initiative of 8 non-governmental organisations. Foundation of the National Youth Council was supported by the Russian Federation President’s Decree No1075 On Immediate Actions on Development of Youth Policy in the Russian Federation, dated September 16, 1992.

The main aim of the National Youth Council is to support and coordinate activities of Russian youth and children organisations in order to encourage realisation of their interests as well as protection of children and youth's rights.

The Multinational Russia Club was founded upon the initiative of the National Youth Council of Russia, youth and ethno-cultural movements and with assistance from the Public Chamber of the Russian Federation. The main event of this year is the Dialogue International Youth Camp. Every year the camp welcomes over 300 delegates from youth NGOs of Russia, the CIS, Baltic nations, Western European countries, as well as international students studying in Russia's higher education institutions, members of state authorities of the Russian Federation, Council of Europe and European Youth Forum, representatives of world religious confessions (aged from 18 to 35).

The National Council's constant members are the Ministry of Sports, Tourism and Youth Policy of the Russian Federation, Federal Agency for Youth Affairs, Ministry of Regional Development of the Russian Federation, Ministry of Education and Science of the Republic of Tatarstan, Youth Department of the Council of Europe, top youth and ethno-cultural organisations and ethno-cultural autonomies of the Russian Federation. In February 2011 the National Council signed a cooperation agreement with the Kazan 2013 Executive Committee.

Under the signed cooperation agreement, members of the National Youth Council of Russia are obliged to promote the ideas of the 27th Summer Universiade among youth, as well as to train volunteers for the 2013 Games.
