At the SCO Secretariat on 18 December 2020, SCO Secretary-General Vladimir Norov presented certificates to the winners of the Model SCO interactive game, which took place at Tsinghua University on 12 December 2020.
The Model SCO was organised by the Centre for Global Competence Development at Tsinghua University with assistance from the SCOLAR Network youth platform. The event was a simulation of an SCO Heads of State Council meeting with a focus on developing intercultural exchanges in the SCO countries initiated by young people.
Twenty Tsinghua University students representing China, Russia, Kyrgyzstan and Pakistan, as well as participants from Norway, Bangladesh, Lithuania and Malaysia, took part in the discussion.
The delegates exchanged opinions on young people's role in developing intercultural exchanges in the region, the search for new opportunities, and also problems and challenges facing the young generation at this unstable time.
The participants noted that certain difficulties still exist in spite of the existing progress in the development and support of university cooperation within the SCO. A number of proposals were put forward, including those aimed at increasing young people's participation in solving social issues.
