According to a statement by the forum on Friday, the techniques used during the fourth edition of the forum, to be held 10-13 January, include utilising advanced robots to sterilise halls, measure participants’ temperatures and distribute sterilisers. 

The robots will also provide information on the event’s halls and sessions and offer food and beverages to participants. 

Doors leading to halls and sessions, and means of transportation at the forum will also be self-sterilising, it added.

The COVID-19 pandemic, climate change and Egypt’s Decent Life initiative are among the main issues to be discussed during this year’s edition.

The forum’s agenda will include discussions of others issues like the future of energy, sustainable water security, global peace and security and the reconstruction of post-conflict areas in addition of focusing on upholding human values through arts and creativity as well as building security and an inclusive world for women.

The WYF announced on Thursday that it launched a virtual interactive platform for all those who cannot attend the forum in Sharm El-Sheikh in-person, allowing them to attend the events remotely.

The platform allows users to follow the events and activities in the forum in addition to participating in the forum’s workshops in a way that allows interactive activities between all the participants.
