IV Forum "Sanctity of Motherhood"

IV Forum "Sanctity of Motherhood"

Kazan, 26-27 November, 2015

The theme of the forum: «Centuries-long family traditions – the foundation for the Future of Russia»

On 26–27 November the Fourth Forum of the All-Russian Programme "Sanctity of Motherhood" will be held in Kazan. The organizers of the Forum are the Centre of National Glory and the Foundation of St. Andrew the First-Called with support from the Endowment Fund "ISTOKI" and the Government of the Republic of Tatarstan.

The Forum will gather representatives of many Russian regions — heads and employees of public organizations, federal and regional bodies, journalists, scientists, representatives of traditional religions in Russia.

In 2015 the Forum’s work will be focused on the ways to preserve and support the succession of spiritual and moral traditions of family life as the task of national importance and of primary significance in the modern historical conditions for the sake of future Russian civilization.

The theme of the Forum in Kazan is following the main theme of the International Forum "Large Family and the Future of Humanity" that was held in Moscow on 10–11 September 2014 and that reflected the solidarity of supporters of traditional values on family support who gathered from around the world.

Special attention at the Fourth Forum will be paid to practices and initiatives, both effectively working and those having perspectives for realization, in the field of law, education, mass media, youth volunteering and others, that make it possible to transfer moral and spiritual grounds from one generation to another generation and which are significant for life and well-being of every family.

The venue for the Fourth Forum will be in Kazan. The Republic of Tatarstan is the region which personifies the peculiar feature of the Russian civilization — peaceful, neighbourly and mutually enriching co-existence of peoples, their cultures and spiritual traditions. Thus the Forum is to emphasize the significance of traditional family values which are essential part of the cultural and moral code that unite the peoples of Russia. The Forum will be a part of realization of the agreement between the Government of the Republic of Tatarstan and the Centre of National Glory which had been signed in May 2015.
