On April 20 a meeting was held between the Governor of the Sverdlovsk Region, Evgeny Kuyvashev, and Director of the UN Information Center in Moscow, Vladimir Kuznetsov. Sverdlovsk Region's role as a host for international events was discussed.

Governor told Vladimir Kuznetsov about the preparations for the 2023 FISU World University Games. Ural's role in holding UN events was noted. Ekaterinburg hosted World Cities Day in 2019. The forum attracted a record number of attendees and received high praise from its guests.

- The Sverdlovsk Region has hosted many events, such as the Global Manufacturing and Industrialization Summit and the UN World Cities Day. I believe we shall build on this forward motion. This year marks the beginning of the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration. We propose to mark this occasion with an event in the Sverdlovsk Region, - said Vladimir Kuznetsov.

He also noted that this event can combine themes of both sports and environment. Evgeny Kuyvashev has supported the initiative, promising that the necessary work will be done to decide on the format and find a site for the proposed event.
