Once your position paper has been approved of by the Secretariat they will send you the Delegate ID – the document without which you will be unable to take part in the Forum. Make sure you have it printed out. Once you have received the delegate ID you are officially a delegate. We will be waiting for you at the IV SDG Forum on March 30-31, 2018!

If there is no room for you in the committee you wanted to join at first, you can always go through a lighter registration process to become a member of some other committee.

The SDGForum-2018 registration fee is expected to be 300 RUB.

The registration fee covers the expenses on the conference organization and some of the socials. Its payment is mandatory for your participation.

Within a week’s time after the Expert has appointed you a country it is necessary to transfer the registration fee to the SDGForum’s account (account references will be sent via e-mail) and to send the receipt to the e-mail of your chosen committee to confirm the remittance.

Please note that students of MGIMO-University are exempted from paying the registration fee.
