The four day Global Youth Meet 2015 kicked off yesterday with a colorful start. The event began with the release of red heart-shaped balloons to the sky from an open stage set at the Vuda Park. The Youth Meet that focuses on youth, health and development received a great jump start.
The opening ceremony was equally vibrant, with speeches from the noted guests on how youth, health and development are closely connected to each other and why healthy youth could be the potential torch-bearers of the sustainable development.
Close to 96 young delegates from across 31 countries are taking part in this summit to plan strategies that will aid the sustainable development of the world and mitigate serious health hazards among the youth. The mission of the meet is to transform youth by imbobing skills of leadership and become the ‘change agents’ and global health advocates. This meet also enables the youth to initiate and contribute towards public health in their respective countries.
Annual Global Youth Meet 2015 is being organized by HRIDAY (Health Related Information Dissemina-tion Amongst Youth) in collaboration with Public Health Foundation of India (PHFI) and Visakha HRIDAY SHAN (VHS).
