Youth Problems in Russia and Japan: Online Lesson in English
On October 17, 2020, the second-year students specializing in law took part in an online English lesson dedicated to the problems of youth in Russia and Japan. The students’ interlocutor was Kotaro Uechi, a student of the University of Tokyo.

The lesson, held in a dialogue format, raised the issues relevant to the youth, such as various types of addictions, difficulties in combining study and work, difficulties related to self-expression, generation conflict, and others. Our students paid special attention to the insufficient development of the general culture of modern youth, and to the lack of interest in reading books, visiting museums and theatres.

Kotaro pointed out the apolitical nature of young Japanese as the main problem. He noted that Japan is a country of centenarians, and therefore politicians develop their action programs focusing exclusively on the interests of the older generation, ignoring the interests and concerns of young people. Thus, the latter do not see the point of taking an active civil position and in taking part in the political life of the country.

In their speeches, the students also focused on positive examples, mentioning, for example, the success of young people in science and sports. In addition, everyone agreed that in the complex epidemiological situation in the world, both the youth and the older generation have come together to help and support each other.
