National Youth Day being celebrated today

Jan 12, 2018

Prime Minister Narendra Modi will address the 22nd National Youth Festival 2018 via video conference on Friday.

The five-day festival, to be held at Gautam Buddha University at Greater Noida in Uttar Pradesh, will commence  on the occasion of birth anniversary of Swami Vivekananda.

Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath,  Union Minister for Culture Mahesh Sharma and Union Minister for State  of Youth Affairs and Sports  Rajyavardhan Rathore will also attend the program. Rathore expressed hope that the festival will bring new energy to the youth.

The festival will conclude on 16 January. This is the first time that the National Youth Festival is being organized in NCR.

The theme of the Festival is 'Sankalp Se Siddhi', to capitalize on the demographic dividend of young India to pledge to accomplish the Goal of New India. The Festival also provides an arena, by creating a Mini-India, where youth interact in formal and informal settings and exchange their social and cultural uniqueness. This blend of diverse socio-cultural milieu creates 'Ek Bharat Shrestha Bharat'.

The entire programme is designed to enhance the awareness about government initiatives and exhorting the youth to express their perceptions and concepts of how to make their initiatives more effective.

Around 5,000 volunteers of National Service Scheme and Nehru Yuva Kendra Sangathan from all parts of the country along with local accredited youth will participate in the 5-day Festival.

The National Youth Award will also be conferred during the ceremony.
