The participants of Eurasia Global proposed projects to strengthen youth cooperation of the EAEU countries

 There was a brainstorming session "The EAEU Youth Agenda is a new direction" at the forum. The participants made proposals to develop youth cooperation between the countries, identifying trends of various groups of young people, for example, workers of culture, entrepreneurs and IT specialists, in the economic processes of the EAEU. The reason for the brainstorm was the initiative of the President of the Kyrgyz Republic Sadyr Zhaparov to found and to hold the Youth Forum of the Eurasian Economic Union annually.
 The teams identified trends and anti-trends and on their basis they made specific proposals. Among them: the strengthening of the influence of the Russian language as an element of "soft power", the growth of intercultural interaction on the territory of the union, low level of mobility of Russian citizens to the EAEU countries.
 There were several ideas expressed in the project workshop, which experts considered to be potentially useful. For example, the project "VR Litra" is aimed at promoting the work of young writers and poets. It will be an online platform where written works with translations into the languages of all member countries of the Union will be posted. In addition, users will be able to choose their interests on the platform's website, and they will receive personalized content and a unique video sequence to be watched with VR glasses.
 Another project, the "Window of Opportunities for IT", will create a single market for IT specialists within the EAEU. The platform will allow participants to undergo training and practice, and then they will be included into the database of IT specialists of the Union countries. Now the industry is developing dynamically and the platform will be a good support for the development of companies and the selection of specialists.
 The experts were Sergey Rekeda, an Associate Professor of the Eurasian Economic Integration Department of the Russian Presidential Academy of National Economy and Public Administration, and Valery Smirnov, the Deputy Director of the Institute of Law and National Security of the Russian Presidential Academy of National Economy and Public Administration.
 It should be noted that among the participants of the brainstorming session there were not only young people from the EAEU countries, but also representatives of other countries. For example, Pakistan.
As a result of the work of the platform participants created projects that will include further interaction.
