The Russia-Japan Youth Forum was held online. Students, young professionals, and representatives of youth social movements discussed issues of energy, ecology, support for young families, and bilateral youth scientific cooperation.
The participants of the section “Energy Problems” noted the field of hydrogen energy as a potential area of cooperation between the two countries.
At the meeting of the “Young Family” section, relevant measures of state support for youth were identified, such as preferential mortgages, the development of social infrastructure (for example, the construction of kindergartens) for young families, as well as the need to create a positive image of the family in the media.
Young scientists drew attention to the insufficiently strong ties between the academic communities of Russia and Japan and the lack of career centers for students who plan to link their future with science.
Following the results of the forum, its participants agreed to work on the development of mentoring for Russian and Japanese students who are interested in science, as well as on the creation of bilateral scientific communities within the framework of the Russian-Japanese Student Union.
The organizers of the forum are MIREA – the Russian Technological University and the Japan-Russian Center for Youth Exchange with the support of the Ministry of Education and Science of Russia and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Japan.
