Orientation for the Surat Student Parliament

Orientation for the Surat Student Parliament

Dear Students,

 

The Surat Student Parliament is a concept for student conferences that focuses on addressing current socio-legal issues faced by our nation. The Student Parliament aims to provide an opportunity to learn about politics, a stage to express opinions, and network with some of the most opinionated youth of today.

The fundamental reason for the creation of this student parliament is that there is no real platform provided for students to raise their opinion in a structured manner. The procedure has been designed so the students would furthermore be exposed to a sense of clarity and sensitivity about Indian governance and policy-related decision making.

Held in the city of Surat (Gujarat, India) on the 13th of November, 2016, SSP is an initiative to promote familiarity with national issues, and a platform for expression not only for the debaters, but also for the writers, the artists and for all those who believe in a better tomorrow.

An orientation session for students will be conducted on Thursday (6th October 2016) at Y-Box from 4:00 pm to 4:30 pm. Students interested in participating, as well as students interested in being a part of the organizing sub-committees, can attend this orientation, get a clearer idea about SSP and register.

For any further queries please call us on: +91-9725643841 or email us at: surat@studentparliament.org

 

 

Regards,

Fountainhead School.
