The Brussels Dialogue is an international youth dialogue platform created in 2019 by the Russian House in Brussels. The main goal of the Forum is to promote the development of a dialogue between the youth of Russia and European countries, to attract young Europeans to cooperate with their peers from Russia, to form and promote an objective image of the Russian Federation in the foreign youth environment in order to create a single cultural, scientific, informational and educational space.
