ACTIVITIES THROUGH THE LENS
Young people are an essential part of our international network.
Sixty percent of the Commonwealth is under 30 years of age and the skills, innovation and creativity of these young people represent an incredible opportunity in which we believe the Commonwealth must invest. At the Royal Commonwealth Society, we work with educationalists, students and youth leaders from across the 54 Commonwealth nations to try and help realize the potential of our growing youth population.
As a branch of the Royal Commonwealth Society, we participate in International Commonwealth Activities and Youth Projects. We understand youth are the pillars of any nation. We are in process to launch various youth, educational, peace, reconciliation, relief and social development projects in coming time. We aim to bring together various stakeholders on board to achieve our vision which is a stronger empowerment of young people through holistic approach.
Our International Activities include regular visits to London for Royal Commonwealth Society Meetings, Commonwealth Meetings with diplomats, engagement with Commonwealth Secretariat, Institute of Commonwealth Studies (London), Commonwealth Parliamentary Association (CPA), RCS International Projects, Commonwealth Youth Projects (Canada, Singapore, UK, Cyprus, Hong Kong, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Mauritius and Maldives) to name a few.
In India, our basic working is towards youth empowerment and encouraging youth to be ideal agents of change in Society. We have undertaken and successfully carried out over 43 youth and social awareness workshops / camps since 2006 over range of issues which include, but not limited to, Women Empowerment, Girl Child Education, Female Health and Hygiene, Environmental Awareness, Disability Awareness, Youth as Agents of Social Change, Climate Change, Environment Conservation, drives against Child marriage, Female evening Literacy Camps to name a few.
We work closely with various High Commissions and Embassies based in New Delhi over youth projects, meetings, workshops, seminars, penal discussions and receptions to enlighten the youth about the values of Commonwealth, International Affairs and International Understanding we all share.
We invite various organisations, individuals to support and partner with us to empower the deserved young people from within and outside the Modern Commonwealth.
