About S2C

The Solutions2Change is a nationwide campaign cum competition aimed to provide a platform to sensitize the young generation to voice their concerns and ideas regarding important policy issues that affect their everyday lives. By providing them an opportunity to take result-oriented action to tackle such issues, Solutions2Change offers them a platform to put themselves at par with global thinkers, innovators, and leaders to bring positive change in the nation.

Schools, being the first point of societal interaction and influence in a child’s life outside the family setup, play a crucial catalytic role in paving the journey from influence to change. The campaign-cum-competition, consequently, aims to empower schools as change laboratories to critically engage in playing a catalytic role in the journey towards change. The campaign aims to reach schools across the country, involving over 10 lakh students. Through imparting knowledge in creative forms on important social themes including – water conservation, waste management, open defecation, road safety and mental health – we aim to re-introduce the importance of sustainable living in the school curriculums. Through the campaign, we expect that the students along with the schools will take up developmental activities like afforestation, proper waste disposal etc. fostering healthy social environments in their own communities and local contexts.

Finally, we hope to encourage social entrepreneurship amongst the youth who will be groomed and guided through internships and workshops with India’s leading policy think tanks and civil society organizations imparting knowledge about the best practices in their areas of interest.
