A World of Active Ageing: The Coming Transformation
An ageing population is one of the biggest demographic challenges the world is currently facing. The UN has predicted that by 2050, people aged 65 and over will account for more than 16% of the entire population. And by 2030, the number of elderly people will reach 1.4 billion. Given these forecasts, it is already incumbent to identify new approaches to creating an environment that supports active ageing and offers good living conditions to the older population. How will society change as life expectancy increases? What reforms should be made to healthcare and social protection? What approaches to the provision of social services are most effective? What can be done to ensure that older people play a greater role in society? How can we ensure that skills and knowledge are passed down to younger people? What best practices exist in terms of female involvement in modernizing the active ageing system?

International Video Conference Discussion of Women Prizewinners of the Startup Tour and Women Leaders in International Tech and Innovation Projects
Female entrepreneurs are behind numerous successful high-tech projects and digital platform initiatives, including in international e-commerce. They are also developing services through the use of artificial intelligence. These female driven innovative tech projects are emerging in response to an ever changing world. Supporting progressive ideas which are being implemented in part or in whole by women can help spur further development in interesting areas of technology, open up new markets, and inspire people who are just starting out on their entrepreneurial path. Many countries have startup tours which aim to popularize tech entrepreneurship, identify interesting projects which could be promoted further, and share experience. What global best practices exist for popularizing tech sectors among girls? What can be done to get more women involved in entrepreneurship? What assistance should be offered to help female tech entrepreneurs find investors? How should an idea be presented (and to whom) in order to find partners and like-minded people? What are the steps to bringing a project to the international market?

Developing Volunteering and the Student Movement
Throughout the world, the volunteering movement is continuing to develop, and is covering an increasingly wide scope. It is gaining new supporters — particularly among young people — and is one of the main manifestations of people becoming involved in society. Key projects are being implemented by volunteers across a wide range of areas. These include protecting natural resources, helping those in need, and running educational projects and programmes aimed at improving financial and digital literacy among the older generation. According to international experts, girls and women account for 60–70% of all people involved in these initiatives. The growing role of the student and volunteering movement, along with the support offered to it by parliaments and governments, are helping to address a number of social issues. What effective practices exist for supporting girls’ initiatives and projects at educational institutions? Could volunteering become an essential part of a girl’s professional growth? What are the best girls’ volunteering initiatives around the world, and what is the potential to adopt them more widely?

Developing and Supporting Civic Engagement and Public Institutions as the Key Condition of Successful Government Policy: International Best Practices in Public–Private Partnership
The 2030 global sustainable development agenda has placed particular importance on ensuring that women are able to participate in society fully and effectively, and that they are provided with equal opportunities to take leadership roles at all levels of decision-making processes, including in public life. Public organizations, including non-profits, play a key role in civil society, with women often taking leading positions. They are united by a sense of active civil involvement, social responsibility, and a commitment to traditional values. Women are spearheading key social initiatives and building platforms to help people share successful experience. In so doing, they are helping to strengthen ties between government and public institutions. What initiatives by female leaders to build civil society institutions have proven to be most successful? What are governments doing to help develop public institutions? How can successful experience by female leaders be employed in the development of civil society at an international level?

Women and Media: Effective Partnership in the Information Space
The development of the internet and digital technologies has had a powerful impact on how information is created and consumed. Information sources have shifted to the media landscape, and the role of online media has grown rapidly. Where there was once a deficit of information, there is now a surfeit. New communication channels, media, and content creators have emerged. And consumers are displaying a preference for a specific group of newspapers, magazines, and online resources which are able to provide up-to-date and, crucially, accurate information. As leaders of tech giants, media outlets, and public initiatives, women are playing a key role in shaping public opinion across a range of topics in politics, the economy, and society. What role do women play in the spread of media and communication technologies? What can women do to help shape a media culture in the digital realm? What trends are characterizing the current transformation of the media landscape and media business? What can be done to encourage adherence to ethical norms in today’s media landscape?
