The Youth Parliament is a platform for the youth to speak up and make an impact on the change of an agenda for the country. To take on the policymakers and highlight the need for new thinking that will take the country forward. The platform will inspire the youth to express their views in an organised way as of a real Lok Sabha Session. It will also allow for the emergence of bright future leaders.
The target is to engage youth in a participative dialogue in a format that has never been done before. Youth have become deeply opinionated but at times are frustrated with the lack of opportunity to get their voice and opinions heard. The Youth Parliament is the platform for them to step forward and question policy and the people who have been formulating the policy.

The citizen’s Dialogue (CD) is a forum comprising of prominent and regular citizens aimed at creating a spirit of dialogue into the public. It is seen as a part of governance process; as part of the information on which elected representatives base their decisions. Through Citizens Dialogue, the values embraced by the citizens are combined with the factual information that the administration officers prepare. The aim is rather to support representative democracy by creating transparency, improving people’s understanding of the system and developing a collaboration between those who govern and those who are governed.
