When asked why they opted for the main topic of this year’s forum to be "Ecology: Regulation, Education, Business", he said that the aim of the forum is to tackle several aspects of ecology: regulation in this field as the main precondition for sustainable development, business operations in this field, especially new ideas, as well as new ideas for funding projects in the field of ecology. He also added that regulations would be regarded in the context of the European laws and Montenegro’s accession to the European Union.
"The forum represents a basis for stimulating new thoughts and ideas. It raises awareness of an individual about his/her obligation to develop himself/herself and the environment as well. The forum always gathers many young people who have the opportunity to hear a lot of new information," said Đukanović on the topic the young and their future challenges at the regional and global level.
This year’s forum has been backed by the Center for Climate Change, Natural Resources and Ecology… New business ideas will be presented as well.

"In the part referring to business, there will be presentations of business ideas from this area, primarily ideas of the UDG students as well as the students from the University of Montenegro and those from the region. The forum will present seven business ideas in the field of ecology, and some of them have already been funded from international sources. That is why this forum differs from all the other gatherings in Montenegro and the region as well," concluded Đukanović.
