United Nations Information Centre for India & Bhutan is an organization that serves as a focal point of news and information about the UN to the people if India and Bhutan. It not only works on the guidance, policies and programmes related to the UN, but also concentrates on getting the news out, spotlighting issues, building partnerships, engaging the public, sharing knowledge and working with the media to popularize their cause.
This is the very body that takes credit for bringing the United Nations Young Changemakers Conclave to the people of India too. This platform is a gathering of students, young professionals, entrepreneurs, and innovators who share a common passion to be changemakers in their own right. It is a platform that enables these young and promising changemakers to indulge in dialogue with eminent personalities from the field of business, politics, media, arts, international affairs and social impact.
The conclave, interestingly, is run by a group of social entrepreneurs, media professionals and communication experts with all required support from the United Nations Information Centre for India & Bhutan.
With the world being increasingly plagued by difficulties that need dedicated governance, a conscious effort is required. The United Nations Young Changemakers Conclave promises to do just that. Issues such as role of business in a nation’s development, global warming, rising issues of unemployment, wealth equalization, national healthcare and many more are discussed in the gathering. Although no immediate action can be taken, a collective and collaborative effort can be promised and that willingness to do something for the country is half the battle won!
