The Community forums are held by the Civic Chamber of the Russian Federation from March to September 2016 in eight federal districts of the Russian Federation. The final Community forum took place in Moscow on November 3-4, 2016.

The purpose of the forums is to improve the intersectoral interaction efficiency. The results obtained at the forums’ discussion platforms underlay the Concept of promoting the development of socially oriented non-profit organizations in the Russian Federation, and the forum participants had the opportunity to discuss the most urgent problems of the development of the non-profit sector in Russia and proposed solutions, got acquainted with representatives of the Civic Chamber of the Russian Federation, experts at the federal and regional levels, gained the necessary knowledge to improve their activities, presented their projects and shared experience with colleagues, found partners and like-minded people to develop their projects.

The final Community forum program consisted of two days. On November 3, the participants took part in discussions, interactive sessions and evening workshops. The participants were also able to get expert advice on various issues.

The program on November 4 included the official I am a Citizen! Award Ceremony.
The Community forums make a great, or even a huge contribution to strengthening cooperation between non-profit structures and organizations themselves. Thousands of representatives gather here; they share opinions, ideas, best practices, discuss difficulties and problems, as well as the ways to handle them. Together, it is always easier to find a way out of any, even a really difficult situation, especially because not everyone understands and appreciates the potential and opportunities of the non-profit sector.
