The Emerging Yuvas is going to present a Youth Parliament named, Yuva Policy Summit that provides platform for the youth to speak up and make an impact on the country and to highlight the need for new thinking that will take the country forward.
This platform will inspire the youth to express their views in an organised way. It will also allow for the emergence of bright future leaders.
The target is to engage youth in a participative dialogue in a format that has never been done before, to make them a responsible citizen. Citizenship is not a subject; it is away of living.
Citizenship education cannot be imparted merely by providing students with factual information.
We have to think not only in terms of developing competencies in students but also in terms of influencing their attitudes which are essential for running democracy in the country on right lines.
This is possible if we pay some attention to designing and organizing purposeful activities for students’ participation. Yuva Policy Summit is one of such activities by which we aim to impart some real citizenship education.
The conference will be conducted at , Varanasi on 18th , 19th and 20th of August.
