Kalam Youth Summit 2021

Creating Leaders for Tomorrow

The 7th Kalam Youth Summit will have many distinct features in comparison to the earlier summits. We felt that this time around it is necessary to fuse both the groups together to yield much better result. The system cannot yield maximum results until both the groups, vis-à-vis the youth and the implementers are encouraged to come together to enrich their expertise and share their knowledge. The 6th Kalam Youth Summit will provide such platform which can help both these groups to excell.

The summit will inspire the audience and challenge them to think differently. The summit will be a platform dedicated to innovation and creative action in various fields like Education, Health, Science and Technology, Women Empowerment, Science & Technology, Democracy, Polity, Youth Empowerment, Social Upliftment etc., where top decision makers will share insights with on-the- ground practitioners.

The 7th Kalam Youth Summit , is scheduled in the month of October, 2021. KYS-2021 is being jointly organized by Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam Research Foundation, Social Empowerment Society, in association with Navi Arthkranti Mumbai.

KYS is a platform for the Leaders and Development Professionals to connect with the Future of this nation – the Youth. It seeks to transform the outlook of young minds for their involvement and access in social and rational causes.
