Future of India Foundation is a non-partisan foundation to develop actionable big picture ideas for the future of India keeping the needs, aspirations and context of its youth front and center.
India has the largest youth population in the world yet in many ways, the political process in our country is especially ill-equipped to respond to the challenge of giving our young people a positive sense of purpose and engagement in a rapidly changing world. Evolving a way forward requires a four-pronged approach: understanding how the world is changing (especially with the impact of technology); seeing the world from the perspective of our youth - their aspirations and concerns, their particular circumstances - and how they cope with the gap between what they want and reality; developing big-picture ideas and solutions which are capable of being scaled to make a large-scale impact; and identifying ways of strengthening representative democracy to become a reliable carrier of youth aspirations. This is the work that the Future of India Foundation is set up to do.
For this, the Foundation is bringing together the expertise of working at scale across sectors (education, politics, social sector, technology, communication) with a national network of youth experts drawn from universities and youth groups across the country for original big-picture thinking and communication on important youth issues and democracy in India. There is an expert advisory body for all projects undertaken by the Foundation. #FutureofIndia.
