The third edition of the SRCC Youth Conference is beginning on the 22nd of August 2014. Organised by the Sri Ram College of Commerce, it is one of the most eagerly anticipated events of the year. The previous two editions of the Youth Conference were successful in raising awareness about socially relevant issues like women’s safety, mistakes in policing and corruption. The Panel Discussion was also very popular with eminent personalities like B.S. Bassi (Delhi Police Commissioner) and Dr. Kiran Bedi interacting with the students. This year the event is expected to be much larger with about 6,000 students from numerous colleges all across the Delhi-NCR attending this two-day event.
According to the Organising Committee, “The SRCC Youth Conference is about ideas and experiences. It is an opportunity to peek into the minds of those who are at the pinnacle of success in the fields of business, media, entertainment, politics, and journalism, as well as those who are taking their first steps towards achieving this. The tale of how people have survived the jungle out there is the theme of this year’s edition.”
The youth are a very important part of modern India, and the conference wants to tap this talent and channelize it in a way that is beneficial for both the students and the country. The process of dialogue is very important in this regard as it not only gives the youth a learning experience, but also ensures that they have a platform to engage with such personalities. In keeping with the traditions of the Youth Conference, the speakers at this event are going to be some of the most eminent personalities of India including Mr. Arun Jaitley, Ms. Smriti Irani, Mr. Boman Irani, Mr. Rajdeep Sardesai among others.
One of the most interesting aspects of this conference is that it is organised entirely by students, and so it is this perspective that makes this event unique and different. Interested students can register on a link found at their website www.srccyouthconference.in from the 18th of August 2014.
