The program saw some insightful discussions on a wide range of issues like cultural identity, education, employment, technology, climate change, values and social media during the panel discussion and group work which allowed the youths to work together with young parliamentarians to come up with recommendations and way forward. The program not only included 100 school students but also young entrepreneurs and young graduates.

 

The program gave the platform for the youths to share their concerns and ideas with the parliamentarians. This coming together of the youths and Parliamentarians is expected to continue as a regular interaction forum between youth and young parliamentarians.
