The conference "Actual Problems of Ecology and Nature Management" - one of the first environmental conferences in Russia - was first held in 1999 at the Faculty of Ecology of the Peoples' Friendship University of Russia, created just 4 years before and became the first faculty in Russia that implements systemic environmental education . As a result of the conference, a collection of abstracts of reports was published and a decision was made to hold the conference annually (the only exception for a number of reasons was 2016, when the conference was not held). 

The status of an international conference was received in 2012.

Traditionally, the directions of the conference cover a wide range of issues of ecology and nature management.

Report on the conference in 2020

The annual international scientific and practical conference on the basis of the Faculty of Ecology of the RUDN University is usually held in April. This year, due to the current epidemiological situation, it was carried out in two stages.

An interactive poster session was held for three days on April 23-25, at which 42 reports from different sections of the conference were presented. The posters of the reports provided by the participants were posted on a special site and visitors had the opportunity to ask the authors questions about the reports; the authors' questions and answers were posted there as they became available. At the end of the session, the posters remained in the public domain. More than 200 visitors to the session were registered. According to the feedback from the participants, " The session was well organized, it was convenient to read the reports and ask questions. The answers were also conveniently located specifically for each poster ." (T. and V. Kolomiets, Republic of Moldova).

In April, a poster remote session was organized, and in September, oral sessions of the sections were held in a remote format. During the three days of the conference, about 100 reports were heard online.

In total, the conference was attended by more than 200 participants (not counting RUDN University employees and students) from different regions of Russia (from Kaliningrad to Ulan-Ude) and different countries (from Romania to Vietnam). One of the interesting moments of the conference was an open lecture by the director of the Research Institute of Zoology of the Republic of Kazakhstan, Roman Vasilyevich Yashchenko.
