The two-day Global Millennium Summit organised by the Shri Ram College of Commerce kicked off in Dubai today.
The theme of the summit is 'Future of this Millennium' and it will consist of panel discussions, workshops, competitions and keynote speaker sessions centred around the theme.
Speaking at the Summit, Youth and Sports Minister Vijay Goel, an alumni of the college, exalted the role and dynamism of today’s youth who he said “is full of spark and they have written their fate themselves”.
The Minister said that a National Youth Policy has been launched in 2014 replacing the erstwhile National Youth Policy, 2003. It proposes a holistic ‘vision’ for the youth of India, which is to empower youth of the country to achieve their full potential, and through them enable India to find its rightful place in the community of nations.
Goel said that from this Year a number of schemes for the youth have been assimilated by the Ministry under an umbrella scheme of Rashtriya Yuva Sashaktikaran Karyakram .
The Global Millennium Summit is the first-of-its-kind initiative taken by students of Shri Ram College of Commerce, University of Delhi in association with the Office of International Programmes, SRCC. The Summit aims to provide the youth across the world with a platform to discuss, act and interact. The Summit will see students from the world’s leading universities and notable leaders from the fields of governance, business, technology and academia.
Such Summits are very much necessary to create an International perspective in the youth and for promoting exchange of ideas, values and culture amongst the youth of the countries and also to develop International understanding.
