The Altai Forum’s objective is to form a new agenda of international cooperation regarding the issues of ecologically and spiritually oriented civilization. The Forum aspires to become a constant platform for the discussion of the “green growth” issues, the dialogue of civilizations regarding ecological responsibility and global cooperation.
The Altai Region is a unique natural and geopolitical region, a historically and culturally important place where Eurasian civilizations, peoples and cultures have always met.
This forum is dedicated to the ecological, spiritual and cultural aspects of cooperation among peoples in the name of common better future, harmonious interaction and development of society, man and nature. The topics of ecologically and spiritually oriented development may be combined with intergovernmental cooperation issues of the Greater Altai.
The event will be organized as a conference with plenary meetings and workshops with the participation of more than 100 scientists, experts, community and government leaders from 20 countries. Three main groups of questions are proposed for the discussion: economy, culture and spirituality, politics and international cooperation.
The Forum work is planned to result in the adoption of a declaration or the “Altai Charter” calling for ecologically responsible economic and social development. Subsequently the Forum may result in the creation of the Altai club of experts, public figures and business persons who share its ideas.
