KOHIMA — Advisor of School Education and SCERT, Dr Kekhrielhoulie Yhome, on Tuesday encouraged the young leaders to be driven with ideas and be responsible to various problems confronting in terms of development and in particular the idea of sustainability.

He stated this during the opening programme of plenary session of the young leaders training on SDGs held at Capital Convention Centre in Kohima with 95 delegates from across Nagaland. He pointed out that the narrative is changing in the present context from erstwhile headhunting, killing soldiers and its count to a major shift in bio-politics.

He viewed that today biological life or the care for the self or the state caring for the youth have become the centre of all political and power strategy. He, therefore, stated that the sense of security and safety is not longer based on how much one can destroy but on how much one cares.

“The care of the world has become a new order,” he remarked.

He asserted that the youth must join politics which does not necessarily mean joining any political party or enter into the electoral politics but driven by a certain politics, which is leadership.

Yhome further underscores the need to bring out workable ideas to solve local problems and issues among the young people to build sustainable future.

Nayantara Sasikumar, OSD (Planning) and state nodal officer of SDG Coordination Centre (SDGCC), has stressed on the need to reinvent one’s thinking on sustainable development and inculcate sustainable consciousness at all levels of society. She has advocated fresh energy and thinking in sync with modern times where young leaders could contribute to the SDG agenda.

In his keynote address, R Ramakrishnan, principal secretary of Planning, said Nagaland is making consistent progress in the SDG India index published by NITI Aayog and United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) which focuses on state-level performances. He stated that the composite SDG score for Nagaland has improved from 57 in 2019 to 61 in 2020-21 and ranked 19th out of 35 states and union territories in India.

He informed that the state has formulated and launched the ‘Nagaland SDG Vision 2030: Leaving no one behind” in August 2021 containing a strategic development roadmap to work coherently towards a holistic pathway for the inclusive development of Nagaland. He further maintained that the state government is committed to promoting inclusive, peaceful and sustainable development for a prosperous and sustainable tomorrow.

The two-day event would have technical sessions with resource persons from various professions taking on the various topics.
