This July, we conducted our flagship program, the ipolicy for journalists in the hill-town of Lansdowne in Uttarakhand in partnership with Atlas Network. The workshop engaged 24 journalists from leading national and regional media portals like Zee news, NDTV, Hindustan Times (Hindi), Amar Ujala, Dainik Jagran and Jansatta (Indian Express Hindi) among others.
The three-day residential workshop included dedicated thematic sessions on the New Education Policy, the Fee Regulation Act, environmental challenges and liberalism in India delivered through interactive games, simulation and dialogue.
Our faculty included Kumar Anand, Director - Advocacy, Centre for Civil Society; Prashant Narang, Associate Director - Research, Centre for Civil Society and Rohan Joshi, Head of Outreach, Centre for Teacher Accreditation (CENTA).
We also also conducted the ipolicy for students at the City Montessori School, Lucknow, attended by 40 curious and bright school students.
"It was great. It gave me a new perspective to look at the present conditions. It gave me an idea of how rights, though granted , are not of much help when it comes to practicing them"
