The Indian School of Public Policy (ISPP) is organizing a policy workshop by Dr. Dipankar Gupta on Millennial March – Policy Perspectives for the Future”. Registration is FREE of cost. However, we have limited seats. Therefore, pre-registration is mandatory.
Session Brief: “Given the massive transformations in rural India, the future of the Millennials lies in looking ahead with a perspective that breaks with the past. The rural economy needs to be appreciated in terms of a rural-urban nexus and the industrial sector must shed itself of its wariness with economies of scale. This would demand not just R&D investment but also a solid investment in education and health. Only then can we sustain the efforts needed to drive up technology which constantly promotes greater productivity. Sociologically, it is clear that traditions and customs do not stand in the way of such policy drives and, in fact, there is an atmosphere now that would endorse them at the popular level. Most importantly, given the way in which cultures have shown themselves to be malleable, a lot depends on how the political elite can fashion policies that leave behind a past in order to step into the future, hand in hand with the Millennials.”
