Theme:'Leadership by Example'

This theme will be discussed in three sessions each focusing on a different aspect of the theme.

Each session will revolve around a different sub-theme, based on the Summit Theme of 'Leadership by Example'.

  • Session 1 (Alleviating Our Common Crises) seeks to understand the effects of global crises on the world, and measures that can be taken to mitigate these effects.
  • Session 2 (Supporting Our Fellow Citizens) seeks to examine the problems faced by less fortunate individuals all over the world, and how assistance can be rendered to them.
  • Session 3 (Realising Our Universal Ideals) seeks to explore the various common aspirations the global community holds, and how these dreams can best be realised through local solutions.

Each of the sub-themes will be further explored in four areas that will also be the topics for group discussion. These four areas concern different aspects in which the problems are manifested.
  • Session 1 (Alleviating Our Common Crises) will be analysed in:
    1. Food and Agriculture
    2. Climate Change
    3. Pollution
    4. Natural Disasters
  • Session 2 (Supporting Our Fellow Citizens) will be analysed in:
