There will be three main topics to be discussed in this conference, which are the solution for Indonesiaâ€™s problems, social leadership and internal issues of BEM. This agenda is based on the 100 years of national resurrection momentum, 10 years of reformation and 80 years of sumpah pemuda (Young Generation Vow).
