India: Youth camp to discuss democracy, global warming, promote dialogue

The Centre for Youth Development and Activities (CYDA) will organise a week-long youth camp on democracy, diversity, plurality, global warming and youth participation from February 1-5 in Pune.

It aims to promote youth-to-youth dialogue within the different South Asian countries.

CYDA expects around 80 youth from the Asian sub-continent, that is India, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Nepal, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Srilanka, Maldives and Myanmar between the age group of 1825 years.

The first such programme organised by CYDA in Pune was in 2005 when around 25 Pakistani Youth stayed at CYDA youth volunteers homes for three days in Pune.

The second such larger programme was organised in 2007 in which more than 100 youth from different South Asian countries participated and deliberated on various issues of democracy and peace.
