The audience was super passionate and keen to bring revolutionary change in their surroundings,” said founder, Youth Ki Awaaz, Anshul Tewari.
“The traditional media spaces and platforms allowed few people to decide the kind of narrative to be communicated. That’s what we have seen while growing up. I think one of the key things that this Summit has achieved is breaking down the top down hierarchy and bringing people from the bottom to share their stories and create an impact on society,” he added.
Amongst present at the event were many young and old politicians, actors, socialites and change makers including Shashi Tharoor, Konkana Sen, Vijayanta Goyal, Jignesh Mevani, Swati Maliwal, Iqra Rasool, among others. (ANI)
