The objective of GYPF 2017 is to create a world where all people are equally respected, fully protected and universally realized – regardless of nationality, ethnicity, religion, class, gender or other differences. It inspires young people to implement Gandhian ideals of Constructive Programmes, which include empowering them to non-violently claim their own rights and serve as advocates for the rights of others.
The four-day conference will take place in three cities of Chandigarh, SAS Nagar and Amritsar, in India, between September 29 and October 2, 2017. Each of the conference days will include at least one activity related to each of the core segments of the GYPF: capacity building training programmes, cross-cultural exchanges and understanding, and inner peace through meditation or community work
Youth leaders & Change-makers from over 20 countries of Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Benin, Bhutan, Canada, Gambia, Ghana, India, Indonesia, Kenya, Kyrgyzstan, Liberia, Malawi, Malaysia, Mongolia, Nigeria, Nepal, Sudan, Uganda & USA have already registered for the mega-event.
