Following the opening ceremony, the forum continued its work with panel discussions on issues such as a sense of patriotism among young people, their effective participation in public life, international cooperation, as well as their role in the development of education and science.

The event also revolved around the work done in the area of diaspora in recent years, as well as the tasks ahead and the accomplishments of Azerbaijani youth in the international arena.
