After all the welcoming words, a short lecture on the sculpture and a dialogue of youth with invited speakers, the guys each had an opportunity to stand on the «‎Piedestal» and share their thoughts on three issues: Who am I? What do I want? What do I want for others? Each participant of the conference could be a speaker and feel like the main work of art.
