DOC Research Institute CEO Jean-Christophe Bas will address on Sunday the Indian Student Parliament, an annual non-political conclave that brings together more than 10,000 students from 450 universities in India and other countries, on the theme of “Inspiring Youth, Strengthening Democracy”.
Jean-Christophe Bas said: “In today’s world, we are confronted with global issues and major threats – from climate change to the eradication of poverty, mass migration, and the protection of pluralism and diversity – that even the largest nations cannot solve by themselves. It is the role and responsibility of young people all round the world to speak up. Younger generations must be at the heart of how humanity responds to all of these issues. I and the DOC firmly believe in the importance of non-partisan events such as the Indian Student Parliament as key ways to find solutions that are based on dialogue and mutual respect.”
Now in its ninth year, the Indian Student Parliament aims to build strong public and political leadership among young people, and aims to inspire younger generations to enter public life with the purpose of serving the nation.
The event is organised by the Bharatiya Chhatra Sansad (Indian Student Parliament) Foundation under the aegis of Dr. Vishwanath Karad MIT World Peace University and MAEER’s MIT School of Government. It is supported by many leading Indian lawmakers, speakers of state Legislative Assemblies and political leaders of different orientations and ideologies, as well as international organisations including UNESCO.
