The 8th edition of Young Thinkers Meet (YTM) is being organised by India Foundation from 19th to 21st July, 2019. The theme for this year’s meet is ‘New India – Ideas, Concepts, and Contestations’.
The two-day meet aims to bring together young intellectuals, policymakers, professionals, media personnel, artists, and thought leaders from varied walks of life to a common platform to discuss and deliberate on issues facing modern India. Over the course of several sessions, talks, and interactions, the selected participants are given the opportunity to closely engage with eminent dignitaries from Indian public life.
Over the years, this flagship event has successfully engaged with emerging leaders from across the nation who have advanced to make meaningful contributions to the national discourse. The previous seven editions of the YTM have spanned the length and breadth of the nation. The first such meet happened in Coorg, Karnataka with subsequent meetings happening in Manesar in Haryana, Pune in Maharashtra, Panchmarhi in Madhya Pradesh, Patnitop in Jammu and Kashmir, Vadodara in Gujarat, and Kasauli in Himachal Pradesh.
