In 2020, the COVID-19 Pandemic hit the world and caught it by surprise - in many countries, a humanitarian crisis, a crisis in the food sector, in the education system, in the economy, and health care. Today, the situation is largely under control. But perhaps the time has come "H" and nature itself and the planet are pushing humanity to rethink the uncontrolled consumption of natural resources, the reduction of biodiversity, pollution of the oceans and near-earth space, the growth of inequality, the lethality and destructiveness of weapons in wars and conflicts and other man-made global threats? In any case, the younger generation thinks so. “We are the builders of the future! I am convinced that states will find a common goal and will move towards it together and together. I believe that we will become one and will learn not to create problems not only for humanity, but also for the planet. I see a world around me in the future, in which everyone has the right to choose, freedom of speech and equality in all spheres of life "- these are the images of the Future participants of the international forum" Shaping the Future Together ", who gathered together on August 24-27 in Moscow in order to work together find solutions to the key problems of humanity and propose ways to form a just, peaceful, sustainable Future - a better Future for all.

Each work was evaluated by three experts: Doctor of Science, Candidate of Science and Master's degree, which, like the participants, were represented by several countries. As a result, 74 winners were determined.

This forum is the seed of the future tree. It was planted by the organizers of this project - people who understand one truth: to get sweet fruits in the future and enjoy them, now you need to work hard and take care of the sprout. One of the participants noticed that our projects have contradictions: somewhere we offer one thing, and the other is impossible, while "one". Therefore, it is not enough to work day and night. You do not need to water the seedling all the time, it will die from an excess of water, you need to create a comfortable environment. And water it, and loosen the ground, and fill in fertilizer, that is, you need to find a balance. The balance of our capabilities and desires, the balance of our costs and time, in everything we need to find balance and tranquility. And only after that our sprout will take root and continue to grow on its own. Now he himself understood the direction of his growth.So we, 30 guys, who did not know what to do with their knowledge, with the help of moderators, facilitators and other specialists, understood in what direction they should grow and develop in order to get the fruits-values ​​that they formulated in their teams when solving projects ... And only thanks to similar projects like Horizon 2100, young people will be able to give a clear and structured answer to the question: “How do you want to see your future? And what can you do for this? "young people will be able to give a clear and structured answer to the question: “How do you want to see your future? And what can you do for this? "young people will be able to give a clear and structured answer to the question: “How do you want to see your future? And what can you do for this? " Talking at the end of the forum, we came to the following conclusion: all our desires can be realized, it is not difficult, but we need to take into account all areas that they will affect.

Therefore, in our desired future, we see:

· Clean rivers, lakes, seas and oceans

· Clean air and cities planted with parks

· Green streets filled with electric cars

· Enterprises with modern waste treatment systems

· Pollution control system and exhaust gases

· Modern system of waste processing, waste collection and recycling of raw materials

· Streets, parks and squares with eco-reserves

· A balanced system of human interaction with flora and fauna

· Eco-cultural people who care about the home (planet) in which they live

· Optimization and mechanization of many production elements

· Development of unmanned vehicles

· Construction and growth of cities upwards, but also the formation of separate plots, such as a cottage with land

· Development of agriculture, but the maximum rejection of manual work, and its optimization with machinery

· Demilitarization

· Development and availability of space tourism

· Areas with a developed mode of transport, such as flying cars

· The beginning of the colonization of other planets

· The introduction of artificial intelligence everywhere in everyday life, as a home assistant

· Affordable medicine and increased production of pharmaceuticals

Thank you very much for this forum! Thanks for the work you've done! In fact, there are often mistakes in organization, but the organization of Horizon 2100 was at a high level. You didn't get bored for a second, you were always busy with something. We've done so much in so few days. We found each other, came to a common goal and showed results. This is a huge contribution, and everything that each of us has done will affect us in the future. Each of the people who attended the forum set the mood for every day. My dream is to come next year!

I don't even know how to describe my emotions about the last forum. It was just amazing !!! These 4 days are one of the best in my life. I will never forget the days that I spent on the forum. It was a very cool experience as I have never participated in any such event. I met very interesting and cool people. And my team is just the coolest guys, I love them. At the forum, I liked absolutely everything, how it was organized, food, events, excursion, everything was at the highest level. But! It is a pity that there was not enough time, I wanted to communicate with my team and other guys for a longer time. So, I want to thank all the organizers, jury members, experts, facilitators and everyone who was involved in organizing the forum. Thank you very much!!! It was unforgettable!!!

Ovchinnikov Pavel
I do not regret at all that I came here, and I am grateful that I was invited and given the opportunity to participate in such an amazing event. I gained tremendous experience in working with a team, communicating in a foreign language, traveling by metro in Moscow) We had a rich program, taking into account the timing of the forum, but it included cultural events that allowed me to distract myself and enjoy informal communication with each other ... Lots of food! The moderator and structured approach to solving the cases that we were asked to work with were great help. For me personally, it was very useful. Of the proposals - master classes from reputable people and sharing experience from experts. Only positive impressions. There were stressful situations, but after defense, I exhaled, looked back and said to myself that it was not in vain!Thank you, it was great!
