There are 4 modes provided in this event:
The Book of Communique
This mode is like a digital book on a big screen. Participants can take turns turning the page and reading the contents of the page. One of the contents of the page in the book is an invitation to the participants to protect the earth because the world is not doing well. We need to work together to protect threatened species, manage water resources, and manage and reduce pollution in water and air.
“If I Be” Mode
It is an interactive mode in the form of a room with a size of 3×3 meters and in this mode, there is an empathy-based experience activity. Participants who enter will see a video where participants are then invited to feel the point of view of various types of human problems. In this room, participants saw from the point of view of being depressed, blind, and people exposed to racism. So, from this mode, it is hoped that participants can be more empathetic to other humans so that there is no more discrimination or racism against different people.
Free Youth Hallway Mode
This hallway has a length of 8 meters and is circled with LEDs that will flash according to the tempo of the music playing. Participants who walk in this aisle will hear Indonesian folk songs accompanied by the blinking of LEDs that follow the tempo of the folk songs. Through this vehicle, Y20 wants to invite the participants to realize that young people still have a long way to go to reach the future, so it is necessary to continue to play a role and be involved in building a better world in the future.
The New Face of Digital Government Mode
This mode utilizes interactive body tracking technology to get acquainted with various government applications, one of which is the care and protection application. Participants can move their hands to choose which application to open. To open the application, visitors just need to make a fist and the selected application can be opened. Through this vehicle, Y20 wants to invite young people to know various application technologies as outputs of digital transformation.
