This year's camp is sponsored by the Russian Ministry of Education and Science, the Federal Agency for Youth Affairs, Russian State Technological University and Russian New University.

Seventy young people from across 17 countries, including Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Latvia, Lithuania, Moldova, Russian, Tajikstan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Ukraine and Estonia will descend on Moscow for the opening gala.

The gala will be held on a boat and will be attended by prominent public figures, representatives from administrative and diplomatic agencies and representatives from similar youth camps.

Following the gala, the campers will travel to Kaluga where they will participate in the remaining camp activities at the Ethnomir Cultural Center. Activities include international dialogue training, meetings with experts, discussions of topical issues and creative and sporting events.
