  • Youth-oriented: How can our parliament ensure the political participation of young people and prepare the future of democracy? What progress has been made and what needs to be done?
  • Development-oriented: How should we connect the United Nations’ 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development with the democratic values of participation, inclusiveness and accountability? How to ensure that democracy and development advance hand in hand?
