Session 1: Global Mega Trends to 2025 and the Implication for Nation-Building

 

The 21st century is a time of rapid advancement in technology but has witnessed a series of unforeseen events. Anticipating future changes will help us plan and prepare for the future. This panel session will explore critical factors projected to shake, shift or shape the global landscape from now to 2025, and to what extent these factors may constrain choices and shape opportunities for nation-building.

  • What will the global mega trends be from now to 2025?
  • How will these factors change and impact nation-building?
  • Which scenarios of the ‘world’ and ‘lives’ might exist in 2025?

Session 2: The Development of Human-Centred Economies to advance Economic Prosperity and Sustainability

Since 1980, the number of people living in absolute poverty has decreased fourfold. Individuals are living longer and more comfortably than previous generations. However, within many countries, inequality is growing and, in certain cases, has reached record highs; incomes have stagnated for the middle class in advanced economies; recent surveys show a decline in trust in social institutions. From these phenomena, new growth models are proposed to seize opportunities presented by the new round of industrial revolution and digital economy and to strike a balance between efficiency and equity to ensure that different countries, and different groups of people, all share in the benefits of economic globalization and that humans are at the centre of the development process. Therefore, in this session, important questions that should be discussed are:

  • What does human-centred development mean from business and economic aspects?
  • Why is human-centred development important for economic prosperity and sustainability?
  • What are the obstacles and challenges to be overcome so as to develop human-centred economies towards economic prosperity and sustainability?
  • How should human-centred development strategies be designed to advance economic prosperity and sustainability in organizations and countries?
  • What can the public, private and people sectors do to promote human-centred development for economic prosperity and sustainability

Session 3: The Development of a Human-Centred Society with greater Social Cohesion and Diversity

 

Social cohesion and preservation of unity among diverse societies are fundamental to the progress of nations. However, it is undeniable that many countries in the world have problems that arise from historical differences, cultures, ethnic conflicts, religions, natural resource management problems, etc. Conflicts and disunity can hinder the economic, social and political development of certain countries and prevent that country from becoming more developed while its population is not at peace, and there is an absence of sufficiently good quality of life. Therefore, aiming towards social cohesion and diversity which is human-centred should be one of the goals in nation-building. In this session, important questions that are going to be discussed are:

  • What does human-centred development mean from a social aspect?
  • Why is human-centred development important for social cohesion and diversity?
  • What are obstacles and challenges to be overcome to develop a human-centred society with greater social cohesion and diversity?
  • How should human-centred development strategies be designedfor social cohesion and diversity?
  • What can the public, private and people sectors do to promote human-centred development for social cohesion and diversity?

Session 4: The Development of Human-Centred Education Systems to enable Full Human Potential and Civility

Education systems in many countries face a variety of problems. A non-human centered education policy/system that focuses solely on achieving academic goals, rather than on the needs and interests of the individual student, can lead to a number of problems. These include low student engagement and motivation, limited development of important life skills, limited opportunities for self-expression and individuality, limited social and emotional learning, limited opportunities for civic engagement, lack of a sense of civility, empathy, respect, and tolerance for others and high dropout rates. These reasons and problems can impede the progress of students and limit the development of their full potential and civility. Therefore, in this session, important questions that are going to be discussed are:

  • What does human-centred education really mean?
  • Why is human-centred education important for the development of one’s full potential and civility?
  • What are obstacles and challenges to be overcome in the development of human-centred education systems to allow students to reach their full human potential and civility?
  • How should human-centred education strategies be designed to enable students to reach their full human potential and civility?
  • What can the public, private and people sectors do to promote education for human development towards full potentiality and civility?

Session 5: The Development of Human-Centred Politics towards Political Freedom and Stability

Political freedom and stability are important goals in nation-building. However, according to Freedom in the World 2021, authoritarian actors grew bolder during 2020 as major democracies turned inward, contributing to the 15th consecutive year of decline in global freedom. The proportion of countries designated ‘Not Free’ has reached its highest level since the deterioration of democracy began in 2006, and countries with a deterioration in political rights and civil liberties outnumbered those with gains by the largest margin recorded during the 15-year period. What happened in the world? Does this mean that people are no longer at the centre of political development? How then can we build a human-centred nation with political freedom and stability? Important questions that are going to be discussed in this session are:

  • What does human-centred development mean from the political aspect?
  • Why is human-centred development important for political freedom and stability?
  • What are obstacles and challenges to be overcome in the creation of human-centred politics to develop greater political freedom and stability?
  • How should human-centred development strategies be designed for political freedom and stability?
  • What can the public, private and people sectors do to promote human-centred development for political freedom and stability?
