This World. Our Future in Debate
This year’s theme puts young people at the centre of political and social debates as we come together to find solutions to global issues. We aim to encourage the future generation of world leaders and contributors of society to get involved in politics and global development. Hopefully, throughout this conference, delegates will realise the importance and consequences of their actions and how they can make a positive impact on the world. Along with this comes the idea that the future should be built through discussion rather than power relations. This can only be done through unity and people coming together and brokering peace/economic deals.
