Preliminary agenda of the Conference Round Tables

    1. Economics and Finance

To be alive in a time such as this! To live through events that will soon be drafted as part of history; events that will be taught and learnt from for years to come, world changing events such as the global market crash of 2008; the leak of the Panama papers and BREXIT (Britain voting itself out of the European Union) can inspire us to be thought leaders on matters that affect our future, as the leaders of tomorrow.  If you are inspired to be part of this conversation on the science of finance please join this roundtable.Themes for this table include the following (but not limited to):

Accounting and related matters,
Finance, costing, management,
Taxation and monetary policy,
Auditing and other assurance services 

      2. Law and Human Rights

We have come a long way from the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. During this period there was a strong emphasis on human rights, but the result is too many violations of these rights. Though International agencies, Nation-state actors, social activists, media and Human Rights organizations are putting a lot of efforts for the enforcement of such laws but even then the number of cases of violation of Human Rights is increasing very rapidly. In an era, where every aspect of life is effected by terrorism, Human Rights becomes the area of prime of concern for all the thinkers, scholars and academicians. If you have any innovative ideas or suggestions you are welcome to present it in this round table. Scholars can opt for any other topic also relevant to this round table.Tentative themes for this round table are as bellow:

Human Rights of the Vulnerable Groups,
Counter Terrorism and Human Rights,
Human Rights and Immigrants/Refugees,
Human Rights of Different Groups (LGBT, Women, Child etc.),
Redressal of Human Rights Violation,
Right to Happiness

      3.World Politics and International Relations (Agenda is under consideration).

      4. Social Affairs and Medicine

In recent years, many countries have undergone rapid economic growth and social transformation. In this context, social affairs and medicine issues attract wide attention throughout the world. The “Social Affairs and Medicine” round table provides an international and interdisciplinary platform for the dissemination of innovative research in the disciplines of social affairs and medicine. A wide range of interested issues related to physical and mental health, e.g. health care, clinical practice, traditional medical treatment, medical ethics and health policy, as well as social affairs, can be discussed in the round table. All stakeholders, e.g. scholars, officials, students, NGOs, are encouraged to come and share their ideas and experiences on research, policy and practice in the areas of common interest to social scientists, health practitioners, and policy makers.

      5. Ecology, Environment, and Energy

The human population faces major environmental and energy challenges, such as climate change, energy transition, poverty, food security or loss of biodiversity. This obligates the global society and its leaders to come up with smart, sustainable and innovative solutions based on natural and semi-natural systems. Nature based solutions can approach contemporary climatic, energetic, environmental and ecological challenges in a more sustainable way and can help create resilient human environments and cultural landscapes.

The round table will explore contemporary issues and concepts, such as nature based solutions, green infrastructure, ecosystem services, green and urban agriculture, energy efficiency and sustainability, smart cities or resilient food systems. Our aim is to bring together young leaders, professionals, scientists and politicians to share knowledge and to propose innovative ideas and considered solutions for our global society.

      6. Design, Technology, and Innovations

Design is the discipline where Technological innovation and the Social meet. Through the application of Design, the advances of modern science and technology (nanotech information processing at the atomic level, exo-scale computing, ubiquitous virtual prototyping of new products, hyper connected social networks) can be made accessible and therefore contribute towards improving our living conditions and the wellbeing of us and others on this planet. 

In this Round Table students, professors and industry leaders from around the world working at the cutting edge of science and technology will discuss the latest challenges and opportunities (interdisciplinary areas like bio-informatics, cloud computing, machine-brain interfacing, millimeter wave wireless communications, big data analytics, and various other) encountered in their fields, share their vision for future advancements and consider and explore the resulting social impact and how these advances can improve health and wellbeing, leading to a better society.

      7. Education and Youth

Currently, the discussion about youth and education, at a global level, brings out four major issues that require our attention and effort: Sustainability Development Goal # 4 Quality Education (ensuring inclusive and equitable quality education and promoting lifelong learning opportunities for all), the challenge of providing education to refugee children in conflict areas, the rising cost of higher education and the consequent dropout problem (bearing in mind what governments and the corporate sector are doing or not doing to solve this problem) and finally the growing global interest in achieving happiness and the role of education in this regard.

The Education and Youth Roundtable is the forum where you can present your thoughts, research findings and recommendations about these four major issues and send a message to the world leaders and leading organizations that can help make the world a better place.

       8. Humanities: History, Philosophy, Linguistics, Arts, and Journalism (Agenda is under consideration).

It’s a great opportunity for young parliamentarians all over the world to meet and share views of how to deal with issues in different places.

As a participant of G20 Youth Forum I’ve got information from others, what views, what people are doing, how best can we practice in our places and how we can improve our society.

It was a good experience and I think for next Forums it will be better to get more countries to share their ideas together.

Jenny Mikakos
Member of Parliament, Australia
Jenny Mikakos

I think the main purpose of the G20 Youth Forum is to bring together students, academics and young parliamentarians around the world to share ideas as to how we can make a better world. It is very important to have an understanding of the views of each social group fora successful policy.

It has been a very successful Forum. I wish to congratulate the organizers. I thought it was very interesting to be able to learn more from my colleagues at the International Young Parliamentarians’ Debate about the respective nations and native societies. We have decided many important questions and we will try to implement them in our countries.

Liv Holm Andersen
Member of Parliament, Denmark
Liv Holm Andersen

I expected to come here, to share a lot of ideas with representatives from parliaments and also from academic institutions. First of all I met some incredible people and second of all most importantly I got a lot of inspiration on my field which is social issues.

In our section we have very interesting papers and point of views. The greatest thing is to notice how really different systems and societies we representing. And at the same time we can agree on so many goals and aims for this world and for our countries to work on together. And that is very incredible, great.

I hope that Denmark will make really priority and send more not only MP but also representatives from local parliaments and more Universities because I think it’s a great opportunity to our young parliamentarians, youth and students to be inspired and to inspire others.

Maria Magdalena Matthys

I think it’s a very good cause for young people. In my vision the purpose of G20 Youth Forum is to encourage young people to learn and educate themselves, to unit them. I also think that it’s good opportunity for academics to come and share their experience. And also for young parliamentarians to be an example for the countries, they can encourage more youth, young people to participate in this program.

I talked about professionalism of women in South Africa and I’ve learnt a lot from other countries about agenda issues.

Alvin Botes
Member of the Executive Council, South Africa
Alvin Botes

One of the objective things of G20 Youth Forum is to insure a comprehension of network, to exchange intellectual and societal ideas among current youth leaders, formal youth leaders and those working on the youth agenda across the world.

One of my colleagues on the International Young Parliamentarians’ Debate presented me kangaroo – I’m from South Africa, I was in Russia and received an Australian kangaroo. It’s the exchange of ideas and network. So this little kangaroo symbolizes this.

It’s a good platform for intellectual debate and it should be held annually.

Bing Ren
Professor, Nankai University, China
Bing Ren

According to my understanding, G8 and G20 originally focused on the finances and economic issues. But through out of the years and particularly my personal participation this time I think the issue animation becomes broader than that. It is not only economy and finance, but social issues, environmental issues and arts, history. Very different areas comes together to discuss and make dialogue together.

I hope to involve myself in different kinds of platforms – I can speak out my opinion and suggestions – that makes my exchange here more meaningful.
I work in education, I pay attention to educating young people – so I find a lot of common problems around the world. That makes me inspired with the idea that we should participate in these meetings and thanks to G8 and G20 Alumni Association for inviting me hear.

And the other impressive thing is: I think G20 Youth Forum have made great efforts in organizing many people together and try to collect the ideas and also to make this activities more interesting and alive. That is also good impression for me.

Shinya Hanaoka

When I go back to Japan I would like to inform about G20 Youth Forum other faculty members, also international division of our University. Then I will recommend some students from our faculty to join this Forum over the next two years.

This is very famous, impressive and huge youth forum, and also well organized. My first impression was that we can meet with different people from other countries. There are different cultures, different national dresses – for me it is good experience to meet new people from all over the world.

G20 Youth Forum is very good instrument for public all over the world in different countries to learn about G20, especially for the young leaders and youth elites in different countries. I think it will play very important role in the media, in the mobilization, press mobilization in different countries.

Firstly, it’s very precious experience for me. I can meet people all around the world more than 60 countries. It’s very good opportunity to speak with them and to exchange ideas. And, secondly, communications is not enough – we can understand each other and then we can understand ideas of the whole world; especially I’m very happy to see that the future young leaders they gather together. This may be a good guarantee for the development of the world. They have fresh ideas – and this is very important.

The purpose of the Forum is very well constructed. I think it makes us like a prototype of government. It develops a capacity of communicating with people and with some ministers and with the government itself. It’s important for participants that they go home and make there some kind of experiments and be reasonable and capable to understand the solution to each country and for the whole world.

Connell Wise

In my understanding of the main purpose of G20 Youth Forum it is the international cooperation between different countries of the world to basically bring a global understanding how the leaders economic and financial crisis are facing in the world and how to avoid those crisises.

Meaghan Anne Williams

Meaghan Anne Williams

The networking opportunity is incredible and it’s very encouraging to meet young people from all over the world who are interested to talk in same kinds of issues, answering the same kinds of problems, working together, collaborating. Not just making new friends but hopefully making new peers, colleagues to work in these issues in future.

The conference has been incredible for learning more about what the academic world can do to facilitate change in the real world. Sometimes academia is so theoretical that you lose sight of what is actually going on. But this conference has proved that there are a number of individual academics working to harmonize that view.

Melina Djulancic

It is the nice opportunity to get together with the young people from around the world. For me it’s important that people discussing their ideas. Our group was concentrating on the young entrepreneurships and all important things around this field. Basically entrepreneurship in schools is one of our recommendations and easier access to capital for businesses.

Abraham Johannes Swanepoel

Thinking that we are the future leaders of tomorrow G20 Youth Forum gives as an opportunity to start to get used to discuss things, used to live in them and exchanging points of view with other people.

I think it is awesome opportunity just to meet other people, get up different points of view from different countries. As I’m from South Africa and we are still developing country to get point of views that is from developed countries. It gives me lot of knowledge that you can take back to your country and try to employ it in your country system.

G20 Youth Forum is: A lot of people from international society build a partnership, leadership and friendship.

I got a lot of intellectual involvements, we discussed about health care, child care and women empowerment. Each country has different background and situation; it’s very great to know about what country has the same and which are different.

The main purpose of G20 Youth Forum is young leaders working together and think about how to push the world by the small steps.

I think there are a lot of benefits in participating in G20 Youth Forum, for example team work variety, especially to make others think about your points and change your views in discussions.

I think the main purpose at our level – at a Youth Summits and at a Conference, is to bring together young people with ideas, with creativities and with innovations. To bring together, to exchange ideas and maybe together come to enhance ideas to create a synergy between the creativity of young people. Opportunities is to meet always amazing young people which enhance your network in international level and also to be inspired by people from other countries and to increase and enhance your own prospective, how you see things in a multinational way with different cultures and different political system influencing its positions.

The most interesting moment is an Opening Ceremony – lovely discussion between people from all different kinds of fields, from different countries who exchange ideas on education which is of course the kind of thing that applies to all of us. So to see it and try to feel the G20 spirit on the ceremony was the highlight.

One on my career paths that I have been potentially exploring will be diplomacy. I believe that dialoging with young people from all other the world I can practice my cultural and communicational skills and learn how to debate and understand the social issues.

The purpose of the Forum is to exchange ideas between other countries. It’s such a unique opportunity because everyone here comes with an open mind and it’s really interesting learn about other cultures. It’s really a unique experience – I’m really glad I came here.

I expected to hear different prospectives about government’s role and society and it met my expectations.

The main purpose of G20 Youth Forum is sort of empowering young people to feel like they can make a change.

I was a moderator on my committee. And I’m very proud of the document which we were working on. I had a team who I’m really excited about. We have three main ideas on our recommendation: one about child care, one about women’s empowerment in work places with an education and one about social security in developing countries.

Definitely the main purpose is to communicate with a lot of people, to exchange ideas with the experts in your field, and also to send a message about our ideas.

Governments always appreciate opinions from young people who are thinking out of the box. I hope they will appreciate our recommendations too.

I think it’s really great to bring a lot of young people together to talk about important issues. It’s always a good idea. Mostly it's important to meet amazing people who really like to be engaged and are really passionate about different issues.

We looked on the questions: young women’s’ careers and family. We made some pretty concrete recommendations.
