Model Youth Parliament is a platform where the youth engages in democracy by actively participating in the policy making.
With a view to set ‘policy’ as an agenda for youth, 1st MY Parliament, a 2 day event, will be organized on 27th-28th of September 2014 to acquaint Indian youth aged between 18 – 30, about functioning of our representative institutions and give them a first hand experience of policy making process.
There will be a discussion/debate on 4 bills:
1. Policy for FDI in retail
2. The Protection of Women Against Sexual Harassment At Work Place
3. Lokpal Draft
4. Food Security
This will be based on the model of our parliament. The concluded bills by participants will then be presented to the related ministries and prominent individuals such as the PM and the President.
Participants will also get chance to interact with the MPs during and after the event.
