Historically, symposiums were organised to make people gather, and confront matters of significance. In the present scenario too, in the grandeur scene of conversations, symposiums aim to enforce participatory action research.
In the global scenario, mankind is facing several problems as a society. We have issues of poverty, unequal distribution of wealth, migration conflicts, food crisis, disaster management, deadly disease treatments, and corruption in politics. Such issues demand attention and conversation so as to ensure a better future for the upcoming generations. Symposiums should be used as weapon towards the ostentatious greed of certain people on the earth as they clearly lack futuristic thinking that our ancestors possessed.
In multiple functioning democracies around the world, symposiums can be used to address important issues with the help of having one on one interaction with the citizens. Symposiums can be a major part of campaigns and seminars involving migration conflicts, and health education.

Each day the number of users of smartphone and internet manifolds, and this aspect of user development can be put to use in increasing the number of e-symposiums. Clearly, we do not see a lot of e-symposiums on the internet platform nowadays. It is about time to use the time that people spend using internet wisely. E-symposiums can be used to create groups, find important members sharing the same interest, collaborate and cooperate.
E-symposiums can help people in finding help through engagement and contribution.

Internet has diminished the need for hardcore resources, due to which anyone can start an e-symposium using several online platforms. Users can host and organise e-symposiums concerning their interest and issues. We all need to collectively establish a culture wherein everyone is having conversation about the issues that make a difference to human lives.
