Human Circle is back with the 10th Edition of their national level event, Young India Challenge. Scheduled to be held on 12th and 13th of October at Dr. Ambedkar International Centre in New Delhi, the main focus of this year’s Young India Challenge is Sustainable Living along with #DoWhatYouLove.
The two day event will see 500+ youth and young professionals from different parts of the country gathering in one place to work in teams on the UN Sustainable Development Goals and find solutions to the real national problems 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 50+ mentors who are actively working in the field of sustainability to provide guidance.
Apart from this, the event will also include lots of inspiring speaker sessions and a workshop to hack your brain to turn your passion into your career conducted by the founders of Human Circle, Kamal Seth and Wioleta Burdzy.
