Federal experts of the Humanitarian Forum will explain how to measure the real social effect of socially oriented non-profit organizations' projects.

Experts and participants will debate and discuss the topic of social project performance at the "Special Projects and Effects" platform.

During two days of the VIII International Humanitarian Forum "Civil Initiatives of the Regions of the 60th Parallel" representatives of socially oriented non-profit organizations are going to figure out:

- what is a social effect,

- why and how to measure it,

- why grantors and investors are interested in it in the first place.

The participants of the platform together with federal and regional experts will first study the theory, and then work out their new knowledge in practice - specific cases, projects and grant competitions.

On November 16 at 10:00 in Ugra Classic Cultural and Entertainment Center the discussion "Is there a result from projects? Potential of social impact of the project".

On November 17 at 10:00 am at the Art Residence on the Irtysh River there will be a discussion "What is the power of a project? Why are grantors interested in systemic projects? Tools for analyzing problems and evaluation metrics"

At the "Special Projects and Effects" platform, representatives of the non-profit sector will learn what metrics are used to verify the quality indicators of an applied project and how to fill in the most "dangerous" sections of a project application in order not only to receive a grant, but also to attract investors in the future.

The forum will be held on November 16-17 in Khanty-Mansiysk and will traditionally unite civil activists, volunteers, and social business leaders.
