* “We will create attractive politics and society” ~ Roundtable discussion between Generation Z and young politicians ~ *
While there are many Generation Z members who are keenly aware of social issues such as climate change and gender, voting turnout among people in their 20s remains low. Together with a fresh-faced politician who was elected in 2023, we will talk about topics such as “How can we connect politics to the ambivalence of Generation Z?” and “How can we use politics to create the society that Generation Z envisions?”

* ◇Day 1 (16:00-17:00 *scheduled): Local councilor x Generation Z “Give us the option of becoming a local councillor. Is your
ambivalence a social problem?” *
* ◇Day 2 (13:40-14:40 *planned): The youngest mayor x Generation Z “How can we create our ideal society from politics?” *
