As part of the Global Impact Conference 2022 Impact Team 2050 (Impact Team 2050), the Youth Advisory Council under the General Director of Rosatom State Corporation presented an analytical report to EğitimX and took part in the sessions as participants and moderators.

The preparation of the EducationX report required Impact Team 2050 to conduct extensive research, including opinion polls, among the youth of team members in their home countries. In fact, the survey found that the best way to reach young people is through digital platforms. The survey showed that 54 percent of the younger generation get their news through social networks, 15 percent read youth media, and only 8 percent prefer traditional media. 81 percent of respondents said they believe social media allows the voices of their generation to be heard. According to the survey, more than 63 percent of young people believe that social networks also allow them to effectively solve environmental and social problems.
