INDIA NEXT GEN

Young people with big visions, taking small steps towards ambitious goals. No longer just consumers of jobs and wealth but creators of new value and employment. This is what has to be next if we want India’s demographic dividend to be our greatest opportunity and not our biggest threat, if we want India to see the next gen paradime in growth and development. India has the largest number of educational institutions in the world (21,000), a gross enrollment ratio of 20 million and a median age of 25.3, compared to 34.1 of China, 36.7 of USA. Yet, it is estimated that by 2020 as many as 47 million young people will be unemployed. Education is clearly not the only answer. It needs to be supplemented with systems that connect them to the spirit of innovation. This is the Next Generation that outperforms the previous in sports, gaming, creativity, technology and academics. And must be given the inspiration and the means to realise their dreams. DREAM:IN Next Gen is a plan to connect on ground with youth across institutions, town and cities of at least 50% of India. To engage with them, understand and record their aspirations. Which will become, at one level, an open source of qualitative data online. And at another, the basis for the creation of Next Gen enterprise and social action plans with a high level of business and design mentorship. In a unique convergence of business and design, online and on ground, education and practice, imagination and networks, plans and prototypes.
