#SansadUnplugged with YKA

 
‘Sansad Unplugged’ is Youth Ki Awaaz (YKA) and YLAC’s attempt to create a platform for our Members of Parliament to present their Private Members’ Bills directly to young people and lend a voice to these proposals. For youth, this is a chance to know the hopes and dreams of our elected representatives, and to get to know them beyond the cynical image painted by the media.

We hope that this platform becomes a direct channel to engage on policy issues that matter and where many MPs and young people can find common ground.
 


#RedefiningCivics with Janaagraha

 
YLAC and Janaagraha Centre for Citizenship and Democracy are working together to develop experiential learning lesson plans to make middle school civics fun and engaging! These lesson plans will be deployed across partner schools in Karnataka as well as in some other states and will be available to teachers to use in their work.

Here’s to bringing back the wonder in the classroom and paving the way for engaged citizens!
 


#FindingLegitimacy with CPI

 
What does legitimacy of government mean to different people? And how can the relationship between a government and its citizens be strengthened? YLAC joined hands with the Centre for Public Impact (a BCG Foundation) to bring the ‘Finding Legitimacy’ project to India. This project is a global initiative by CPI to understand people’s perception of legitimacy across the world, in places such as Mexico, Canada, Brussels, Singapore and London. We were CPI’s partners for this conversation in India.

#TodayIMetIndia with Instagram

 
Visual storytelling can transcend and break down barriers. At the #TodayIMetIndia project in Delhi, we used photography to bring together teens from diverse backgrounds – who met as strangers but left as friends! This project was a collaboration between YLAC and Instagram in celebration of the UN’s International Day of Friendship.

#TodayIMetIndia aimed at breaking barriers of discrimination and promoting shared understanding by creating portraits which reflect and celebrate the vast cultural and religious diversity in the Indian society. Images from the project were shared widely on Instagram and Facebook, reaching millions of people worldwide, spreading the message of harmony.
