With a view to set ‘policy’ as an agenda for youth, a mock youth Parliament (MY Parliament) will be organised on September 27 and 28 to acquaint Indians between 18 and 30 years about functioning of the country's representative institutions.
The MY Parliament aims to reach out to more than 10 lakh youth across the country.
According to the organisers, the event seeks to strengthen the roots of democracy, inculcate healthy habits of discipline, tolerance of views of others and to enable the student community to know more about the working of parliament.
Why MY Parliament?
Make the youth aware about parliamentary procedure and to develop in them an insight into the working of parliament.
Sensitise the youth about public policy issues and their implementation.
What is it all about?

The event also aims to raise awareness about the need for greater political involvement of the youth in public policy matters with the help of social media and technology.
When will it be held?
