Overview

Good governance is putting people at the center of development process. Hon’ble Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi has, time and again, emphasized a great deal on good governance for development of New India. But he has pointed out that merely “good governance is not enough, it has to be pro-people and pro-active”. India is the world’s most youthful nation. The Youth in India, which comprises of 35% of the total population, is the most vibrant and dynamic section of the society and their participation in democracy and good governance cannot be underestimated.

The Youth has the exuberance and an enthusiastic mind to bring fresh and innovative ideas and has the power to bring about transformational changes. With the advent of modern technologies, the mediums for engaging with the youth have augmented. However, what is still lacking is a dedicated platform for them to interact with the STATE LEADERSHIP and share their ideas on a regular basis. YUVA Sangam, literally meaning confluence of youth, aims to bring the youth of Uttar Pradesh on a common platform to have a meaningful dialogue with the Government of Uttar Pradesh.

YUVA Sangam aims to bring the youth of Uttar Pradesh on a common platform to have a meaningful dialogue with the Government of Uttar Pradesh to churn out innovative solutions to 11 most critical challenges faced by the state. The solutions must be implementable by the Government of Uttar Pradesh.
