The scientific and practical module is work in sections on the subject areas of the Forum with the participation of experts in a brainstorming format; foresight sessions on modeling various scenarios of the future.
Within the framework of the Scientific and Practical Module, the first event was an Introductory MITAP, where topics, Goals / objectives of the Forum, work format were presented; content recommendations are given and requirements; the desired results at the end of the Hackathon were indicated, project teams were formed in the areas of work.
The result of this stage of work was the acquaintance and rallying of the participants, the choice of team captains, PR managers, project managers and technologists.
The next day, July 7th, a brainstorming session took place, where, together with experts, the project trajectories of the teams' work were formed.
Further - one of the key activities of the Forum - Foresight sessions: the teams of participants, each in its own direction, carried out a predictive search for possible scenarios of the future - pessimistic and optimistic - for the next 80 years.
The result of this activity was the creation of project presentations in each of the areas.
At the exit, the teams presented the results of their work in the form of a presentation on the screen, analytical notes and speeches, which were evaluated by experts.
In the Public Chamber of the Russian Federation with the support of the Commission of the OP RF for the Development of Public Diplomacy, humanitarian cooperation and preservation of traditional values, the Final Session of the Forum was held, led by Elena Vasilievna Sutormina, Chairman of the Commission and Suheil Farah.
During the session, the teams presented the final results of their work: presentations on modeling the future in three directions, as well as a generalized image of the ideal future that they would like to see.
The forum ended with a solemn ceremony of awarding laureates and winners of the Horizon 2100 competition.
The results were largely unexpected and revealed trends and ideas about the "ideal world" among modern youth. Many ideas of the participants were perceived by experts ambiguously and caused heated discussions, which, in turn, indicates the importance of this experiment in the emergence of new, fresh promising directions. Schoolchildren, students and young professionals demonstrated a caring attitude towards their own development and the future of their children. The active manifestation of bold, well-grounded views on problems allows us to recommend a wide range of scientists, experts and representatives of government committees to adopt this experimental practice of working with talented youth, as well as to fully promote and support such projects designed to form the country's young intellectual elite. Such initiatives need comprehensive support,both the state and private investors, international programs and projects. After all, it is on the shoulders of these guys that the difficult task falls to create a better future not only for their native country, but for all mankind as a whole.
