For the first time ever, Human Circle is taking the 11th edition of their national-level event, Young India Challenge to Bhubaneswar, Odisha. Scheduled to be held on 22nd and 23rd of February at Odissi Research Centre in Bhubaneswar, the main focus of this year’s Young India Challenge is Sustainable Living along with the underlying theme of #DoWhatYouLove.
Selected youth, young professionals and entrepreneurs from across the country will gather in one place to work in teams for the UN Sustainable Development Goals and find solutions to the real national challenges we face in India. Out of the 17 Goals, SDG 12 – Responsible Consumption and Production and SDG 13 – Climate Action, will be the two goals that the delegates at Young India Challenge will get to work on. To help the teams with their respective challenges and work on the solutions, the event will have mentors who are actively working in the field of sustainability to provide guidance.
Apart from this, the event will also include lots of inspiring speaker sessions and a workshop to hack your brain to turn your passion into your career conducted by the founders of Human Circle, Kamal Seth, and Wioleta Burdzy.
Human Circle is a community of people driving the #DoWhatYouLove and #YouthforSustainability movements. Artists, freelancers, entrepreneurs, corporate professionals, authors, speakers, trainers, coaches, mentors and everybody else who is a part of the community believes that the only way to be truly successful and happy in life is by doing what they love and making a positive contribution in the world.
Human Circle engages the youth of the country to inspire and encourage them to have a meaningful career that combines their passion and social impact. A career that contributes to nation-building and also towards overcoming the key global challenges of our times. The movement has already connected with more than a million young people in India and is growing at a fast pace through their social media and offline initiatives.
And guess what!! The winning teams at the 11th Young India Challenge will get a seed funding of Rs. 1 lakh and 6 months of mentorship and career growth opportunities to work on the challenge.
