As part of the Global Impact Conference 2022, held on December 1 in Nizhny Novgorod, Russia, Members of Impact Team 2050, the international youth advisory council under the Director General of the State Atomic Energy Corporation Rosatom, presented a report on the development of the future education.
The Impact Team 2050 is a council of 11 young men and women from 11 countries: China, India, Brazil, Egypt, Turkey, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, Armenia, Argentina, South Africa and Russia.
They are talented scientists, engineers, managers, community leaders and opinion leaders in sustainable development, nuclear education, communications and international cooperation.
Behind each of them is the youth of their own country with its own set of values and vision of world development trends.
In the report “Education X: Catalyst for the Future”, the Impact Team presented their vision of the future of nuclear education as an important factor in the global transition to clean energy.
The report includes an overview of modern education models in different regions of the world, an analysis and assessment of changes in the preferences of young people in the global media environment as well as recommendations for improving the model of nuclear education in accordance with the request of the younger generation.

If we want our work to be as effective as possible and reflect all modern trends, we need the view from the younger generation. We are grateful to each member of the Impact Team 2050 for their contribution to our joint work for an unbiased assessment of our plans and, of course, for the developed proposals for further cooperation,” said Mr. Alexei Likhachev, Director General of Rosatom.
