Shaping the Future: Space, Economy, Society & Culture

In order to face the challenges of tomorrow and explore the possibilities for building collaborative solutions, we have decided to host the 5th International Youth to Youth Summit in Asia. There are several reasons for this. First of all, Asian economies are digitally engaged, that leverage to support the economic growth. Secondly, digital is driving connectivity in Asian countries, from mobiles connecting consumers in rural areas to improving liveability and convenience in urban areas. In addition, Asia is championing in creation of smart cities and innovative spaces to live and work. The advancement of the region in adaptation of technologies to the needs of the future is considered as an advantage and will add right context to the Summit.

The main theme will be analysed through 6 following topics:
