For the first time ever, Human Circle is taking the 11th edition of their national-level event, Young India Challenge to Bhubaneswar, Odisha. Scheduled to be held on 22nd and 23rd of February at Odissi Research Centre in Bhubaneswar, the main focus of this year’s Young India Challenge is Sustainable Living along with the underlying theme of #DoWhatYouLove.

Selected youth, young professionals and entrepreneurs from across the country will gather in one place to work in teams for the UN Sustainable Development Goals and find solutions to the real national challenges we face in India. Out of the 17 Goals, SDG 12 – Responsible Consumption and Production and SDG 13 – Climate Action, will be the two goals that the delegates at Young India Challenge will get to work on. To help the teams with their respective challenges and work on the solutions, the event will have mentors who are actively working in the field of sustainability to provide guidance.
