India has 600 million young people. By 2020 India would be the youngest country in the world.
According to Ian Jack, Indian youth is set to change the world. This is the reason why most of the developed nations are trying to leverage the strength of Indian youth.
Indo-American Center (IAC), is a not-for-profit organization with offices in Washington, DC and New Delhi.
As a think-and-do tank, IAC works with the U.S. Government on several initiatives in India, promoting educational opportunities, leadership development, entrepreneurship and empowerment of youth and women.
In their latest endeavor, according to their India Head, Shalini Bhalla, they are developing a program for India’s emerging youth leaders.
“Rendezvous with Indian Youth Leaders” would attract 30 most promising Youth Leaders from Northern India to participate in a 2-day workshop at the India Habitat Centre, New Delhi on January 31st and February 1st, 2019.
The objective of this effort is to recognize the future influencers to strengthen the capacity of Indian youth leaders. These influencers would also help to strategize on Indo-US relations for the next decade.
The workshop would also offer the chosen young leaders an opportunity to systematically learn and share about various opportunities to help both nations in building secured future for its people.
This workshop will be conducted in collaboration with DoS and would feature discussions led by U.S. and Indian scholars to discuss contemporary global political and economic trends.
This would not only help to strengthen the bilateral relationship between the United States and India on issues of mutual interest but would also strengthen people-to-people ties between the United States and India through exchange of information, experiences and expertise.
The speakers would be from the US and Indian diaspora.
