Youth Debatathons


Members of the Youth Advisory Panel

As a formative part of the Plan For Every Child campaign, Plan India will be reaching out to its local partners who work with the youth and involve them in shaping the discussions and deliberations at all levels. The aim is to understand the youth’s perspective towards bringing about gender positive and gender transformative changes as effort and progress is made towards Sustainable Development Goals. The aim is also to seek and give a platform to ‘out of the box’ solutions.

Five state and regional debatathons have been planned around India. These debatathons will bring young voices from colleges, universities and communities, to discuss, deliberate and debate on issues which they will prioritise for their states.

The debatathons will be held in Assam, Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, Maharashtra, Bihar, Jharkhand and Delhi. The Youth Charters developed in these debatathons will be shared at the National Conference, where the winners of the regional debatathons will come together to share their views and debate solutions at the grand finale on November 2, 2017 in New Delhi.
