The second conference day of Y20 Turkey on August 19 was the most physically draining and substantively engaging. We had a marathon of four break-out sessions for each group. Also keep in mind that the night before, the delegates stayed up to discuss the points until around 02.00 in the morning.
But it is the most substantively rich day of the conference. All of the points were discussed and debated. Discussion took a longer time than expected that the visit to the Istanbul Modern Art Museum had to be cancelled. According to reports from delegates, the discussion in the Youth's Contribution to Peace group seemed to be the most intense. Whispers were heard that delegates in the Peace group owed everyone an apology for making the dinner late.
Pre-lunch break, we also received an inspiring talk from Mr. Serdar Çam, President of the Turkish Cooperation and Coordination Agency (TIKA).
Today's dinner more than made up for the physically draining sessions. It was in Emirgan Pembe Kösk, a beautiful garden restaurant with a pink building.
The Indonesian delegation to the Y20 Summit 2015 is endorsed by the Sherpa of Indonesia, and sponsored by Tanoto Foundation and Pertamina, with support from the Indonesian Embassy to the Netherlands and Yayasan Pendidikan Pelita Harapan.
