UN75 and beyond

2020 is the year of the celebration of the 75th anniversary of the founding of the United Nations. In honor of this, the UN announced the launch of the UN75 initiative, the largest, broadest discussion on the role of international cooperation in building a better future for all. As part of this initiative, throughout the year 2020, the United Nations is conducting dialogues around the world. In the course of analyzing the real state of affairs in the world, for the first time, thanks to four innovative data collection channels, a package of solutions for the main global problems will be developed through crowdsourcing. Russia supports this discussion, as well as the celebration of the 75th anniversary, having approved a system of events and projects. Among them is a photochronicle project of the national network of the UN GC Network Russia in partnership with TASS and the UN Information Center in Moscow. The project manager is M. Gusman, First Deputy General Director of TASS.

Integration of the Business Social Mission in Corporate Communications

In Russia, there is both an unprecedented interest in the topic of sustainable development, and an acute shortage of expertise in it. But it can be reduced by combining competencies in communications and corporate responsibility with the task of jointly finding ways to transform not only commercial, but also communication strategies in the interests of sustainable development. That was exactly what they tried to do on February 19, Effie Russia, the representative office of the world's largest institute of marketing effectiveness, together with the Russian national network of the Global Compact.
