This decision was made by the World Federation of Democratic Youth (WFDY) and international student organizations at the international consultation meeting on the 19th Festival on February 7, 2016.
Russia has previously hosted the World Festival of Youth and Students twice – in 1957 and in 1985. It is especially important to us that the year of 2017 is the anniversary year for the first Festival that took place in 1947 and for our history as well. It was 60 years ago that our country opened its doors to the youth of the whole globe for the first time. The scale of the Moscow Festival was truly impressive and the bar for the future capitals of the Festival was set high.
Keeping the best festival traditions alive while combining them with key current trends, Russia is once again to welcome with all its hospitality representatives of all continents!
