Announcement: 13th Young Thinkers’ Meet (YTM) 2024. India Foundation is hosting the 13th Young Thinkers’ Meet 2024 on July 27-28, 2024. The annually held event acts as a confluence of young nationalistic minds hailing from varied walks of life across India.

To give some context, YTM is an annual get-together organised by India Foundation, a New Delhi based think tank, for individuals (mostly under 35 years) who are driven by the idea of a New India. YTM today has an alumni base of over three hundred individuals who belong to different parts of India and come with unique life experiences and skill sets. There are social activists, political activists, NGO workers, academics, journalists, scientists, corporate professionals and students from reputed international universities. Participants in the YTM come from all parts of the country and indulge themselves in deliberations and debates on issues of contemporary national importance. The format of the meet is immersive and experiential rather than a lecture-based classroom format. The number of delegates at any YTM has varied from seventy-five to eighty-five and involves freewheeling discussion over two to three days. Each year YTM moves to a new location and helps the young delegates explore the incredible diversity of the country. The meet has previously happened in Coorg, Karnataka; Manesar, Haryana; Pune, Maharashtra; Pachmarhi, Madhya Pradesh; Patnitop, Jammu & Kashmir; Vadodara, Gujarat; Kasauli, Himachal Pradesh; Chilika, Odisha; Pahalgam and Srinagar, Jammu & Kashmir and Annavaram, Andhra Pradesh. Due to the national lockdown, YTM happened virtually in 2020.
