This is a 5-day festival wherein youth from different parts of the country gather together for adventure, learning and loads of inspiration. Set in an absolutely scenic location, the idea is to create a space where people from around the world get the opportunity to interact with youth from across the country. Through informal workshops, discussions, hikes, and open sessions around a bonfire, the participants interact with our volunteers on their culture, the work they do, their lives and their passion. The participants get the opportunity to open their minds and learn about the world, while the volunteers learn directly about Indian culture and about the Indian youth!
The volunteers and some unsung heroes, would conduct workshops on their skills, cultures, their lives and their journey. The festival will include personal interactions, discussion on initiatives around the world. Complete with loads of fun and adventure, there will be games, hikes and such activities, and jam sessions to keep up that energy.
Schedule each day of festival:
- Workshops by volunteers
