Northeast India Youth Leaders Conclave to begin in Nagaland today

DIMAPUR — The Northeast India Youth Leaders Conclave will commence today at the Capital Convention Centre in Kohima, where 100 youth leaders from eight north-eastern states will converge to address the unique challenges and opportunities of the region.

Organised by the National Foundation for India (NFI), in collaboration with the Directorate of Youth Resources and Sports, Government of Nagaland, and NEIMUN as the knowledge and technical partner, the two-day event will be held on the theme “Empowering Youth Leadership: Bridging Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and Inclusive Socio-Economic Development”.

The primary objective of the conclave is to create a platform for dialogue and learning for youth leaders, equipping them to become catalysts for positive change in their respective communities and contributing to the sustainable development of the region.

The conclave will delve into interconnected themes such as harnessing the rich biodiversity of the region, the strategic geo-political landscape, inclusive development in Northeast India, and innovation and economic opportunities, stated an update received here on Monday.

It will feature an array of speakers from diverse backgrounds, guiding the delegates through thematic sessions designed to meet the event’s objectives. At the opening plenary, chief guest Tongpang Ozukum, Advisor of Water Resources, Government of Nagaland, will deliver a speech, followed by the opening remarks by Biraj Patnaik, Executive Director of NFI, and the plenary speech by Kethosituo Sekhose, Director of the Directorate of Youth Resource and Sports, Government of Nagaland. The session will be moderated by Limabenla Jamir, Development Consultant from the Local Public Sector Alliance, Washington DC.

At the event, which is co-funded by the European Union’s project #LeavingNoOneBehind, delegates will engage in peer learning through group discussions and interactions with grassroots leaders who will share their experiences and the various development initiatives they have undertaken.

Technical sessions will guide youth leaders through a human-centred design thinking process, enabling them to create innovative community engagement strategies in alignment with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The goal is to provide them with the necessary tools to explore their interests and design their own commitments and engagement processes, ultimately fostering their role in shaping the future of the Northeast Region through the SDGs, it said.
