SIBUR’s Volunteering Forum is an annual corporate forum of enthusiasts of the volunteering program titled People Changing the World bringing together the most active participants of volunteering campaigns and champions of positive change in the regions where the company operates.

The 2019 Forum

On October 6-7, 2019, Moscow hosted SIBUR’s first corporate volunteering forum titled People Changing the World. This gathering brought together more than 200 visitors from most of the cities where SIBUR operates, including the most active corporate volunteers, grant recipients, partners, and company managers. The guests of the forum were offered to avail themselves of the opportunity to take part in the forum’s education, discussion and festive programs.

As part of the education program, volunteers could learn the secrets behind creative thinking and test their effectiveness together with their instructors from IKRA, the school of creative thinking.

The discussion program was comprised of two panel discussions: Ideas that Change the World, and How to Turn them into Reality, and People Changing the World: Here and Now.

The discussion during the first panel centered around the latest volunteering and charity trends, the impact that the business community, the media, and the culture sector have on promoting volunteering, as well as the role that volunteers play in addressing pressing societal challenges.

The second discussion panel included presentations by the ambassadors of the Formula for Good Deeds Program, and by SIBUR’s corporate volunteers from Tobolsk, Togliatti, and Perm. The presenters shared their own personal stories about how they had gotten involved in volunteering, examples of their favorite and most telling projects, as well as recommendations on how to motivate volunteers and to protect team members from burnout.
