Mentors’ Lounge for Entrepreneurs and Specialists

Young people frequently encounter a range of problems. These may stem from difficulties finding and attracting investment, settling on the wrong aim or strategy, failing to create a clear plan and losing focus, poor resource management, not knowing their customers’ needs, not properly leveraging technology, the lack of a global vision, limited access to capital, and not having the requisite contacts. These, together with numerous other issues and errors, prevent a business from developing and providing the desired results. Books, articles, courses, and training programmes together provide a knowledge framework. However, they do not allow an individual to view themselves from a new perspective and determine the exact steps to take in a specific situation. The only way to effectively diagnose the issues encountered by a young person is to turn to a more experienced mentor and take a closer look at the environment they work in.

The Involvement of Young People in Environmental Initiatives to Support Sustainable Development in the Arctic

Russia’s Far North is incredibly vulnerable. This is due both to climate change, and the increasing development of the Russian Arctic as a whole. The rapid construction of transport routes, and in particular the Northern Sea Route, brings with it increasing risks. As a result, issues concerning environmentally sustainable development are more pressing than ever. These include instilling a culture of environmental responsibility among the local population and workers based in the Far North.

Arctic Development is One of Russia's Key Scientific and Technological Development Priorities

The Arctic has always been one of Russia's state interests. This region is important both from an economic and a geopolitical perspective. This area is home to a third of the world's hydrocarbon reserves and the Northern Sea Route is a convenient transport artery for conveying domestic, strategic, and military cargo. Our country's priority objectives in the Arctic include increasing the use of the region’s agricultural potential, protecting the Arctic's unique ecological systems, developing the Arctic energy sector, monitoring climate change, and protecting the northern border.

Prospects and Issues Related to the Development of Oil and Gas Deposits in the Arctic

As oil and gas resources in traditional production regions start to dwindle, the Arctic will increasingly be viewed as one of the main places to replenish hydrocarbon reserves for the globe. Correspondingly, Arctic nations will display ever-increasing interest in developing the region. Russia possesses enormous potential to replenish its hydrocarbon reserves and resources through developing offshore fields in the Arctic. However, in order to unlock this potential, the government needs to put in place a judicious and carefully considered policy, as well as a programme to encourage extraction companies to invest.
