Former US president Barack Obama to visit India on December 1, invites young leaders to participate in a Town Hall to learn about the work they are doing to impact their communities.
In a statement, the foundation identified India as among the world’s “most culturally, religiously, linguistically, and ethnically diverse nations.” The President believes that countries are strongest when we empower the young people – because ultimately, they’re the ones who will shape our future,
India’s 1 billion people are mostly under the age group of 35 years, an engaged and passionate generation that includes newsmakers of varied fields – politicians, sports people, civic leaders, artists, entrepreneurs and more who working towards creating a positive change within their communities. A change that will make a better future for us.
The Town Hall will expand the conversation about what it means to be an active citizen and make an impact — and how the Obama Foundation can support emerging leaders in this effort.
For that reason, Indian residents who want to join President Obama for this Town Hall are invited to apply to attend by telling how they are making a difference in their community. Apply for Town Hall with Obama
We’ll also invite people across India to share their questions for President Obama online and anyone, anywhere can tune-in to watch the Town Hall live on Obama.org.
This year, President Obama has hosted events with young people in Germany, Indonesia, and Brazil.
