Report on 1st Progress Meeting

2024年4月13日に地球環境ユースサミット2024 in KYOTOの本講座第1回進捗報告会を開催しました。





The 1st Progress Meeting of Main seminar, Earth Youth Summit 2024 in KYOTO was held on April 13, 2024. In this course, discussions are being conducted in small groups of 4-6 members per group in preparation for the Kyoto-Miyazu Summit in August. The period between the kick-off meeting and the 1st progress meeting was set as a phase for learning the knowledge necessary for the discussions. So, youth members searched and organized information related to their discussion topics.

A total of 42 youth and 18 mentors participated in the 1st progress meeting. The groups were divided into 4 breakout rooms and each group gave a presentation of their progress report. The presentations were 5 to 10 minutes in length and consisted of an explanation of the definition of the group’s theme, followed by a list of related keywords, and finally a description of the relationship between the three most important keywords among them. As a result of thorough research during the input stage, all groups had enough keywords and were able to explain the grouping of keywords and relationships among them. The youth in the other groups asked many questions about the presentations, and the discussions were so active that time was running short.

From now on, we will enter the phase of making essential questions based on the keywords from the 1st progress meeting. The results will be presented at the 2nd progress meeting to be held on June 1.
