India-UK Teen Convention 2021



29th, 30th May and 5th June 2021
Age Group: 15-19 years
Format: Online

Overview

India is on her way to become a 21st century superpower, now looking for global partners in this transformational journey, which involves the development of economic, military, political, and cultural powers. This also presents a tremendous opportunity for the United Kingdom. Indo-British relations already have a strong foundation of history, and the values and sympathies are getting increasingly aligned today.
As the two nations advance on building a deeper bilateral relationship, the ideas and opinions of young people are crucial to incorporate into the developmental discussions. The India-UK Teen Convention is an effort to start this process and enable a youth dialogue.
