The main purpose of this year's forum was to discuss issues of information security challenges the Ukrainian society and European countries are facing in the light of hybrid warfare and Russian aggression, and to find ways to solve these problems and how young Ukrainian leaders can contribute to overcoming these threats by concrete projects and actions. The best ideas will be supported by the Arseniy Yatsenyuk Open Ukraine Foundation in the future within the framework of the Young Leaders Program.
Participants of the Forum were divided into 7 working groups, which worked on best practices for the implementation of reforms to counter cyber threats, fake news, propaganda, and others.
