They discussed extremism problems, political settlement of Syria conflict, need for international relations relief, natural resources and cultural heritage protection and other contemporary issues.

One of the main conference topics was protection of natural resources including water. The section "Baltic Sea is our common home" was hosted by the Youth Environmental Center. Environmental education of children and the youth is one of Vodokanal’s priorities.
