It will also dwell on education, such as the impact of globalization on higher education, the teaching of social and natural sciences and mathematics in higher education, the interface between higher education and basic education, and the future of higher education in the context of K to 12.

Other topics relevant to society will be discussed, such as population, in-migration, urbanization of towns, poverty, social services, climate change, disaster risk reduction and management, politics, waste management and ecology.
