Themed “The Great Reset: The New World and Society”, the forum aims to bring together university students, student leaders, academic and club advisors, teaching and non-teaching staff as well as higher education administration from member institutions of the ATU-Net to share their knowledge and learn from one another, to strengthen their regional bond, and form a shared global identity.  Forum participants will be able to dissect and deliberate on the current societal crisis and the prospect of the future in order to lead beyond the pandemic.
