About
Us

The Young Changemakers Conclave was founded in 2011 as a platform to enable Young Indian Changemakers to engage with leaders from the field of politics, media, technology, social activism and the arts. To date, we have hosted 100+ speakers including world leaders, young politicians, thinkers, inventors and entrepreneurs. 15,000 selected changemakers have attended so far.

From 2019 onwards, the platform will evolve to explore the Future of Life in the 21st century and beyond. Through conversations with inventors, policy makers, creators, futurists & entrepreneurs – we imagine how our living ecosystem must evolve to prepare for climate change, artificial intelligence, data driven capitalism and unemployability.

 

YCC is an initiative by X Billion Action Lab and the UNIC for India and Bhutan to enable dialogues about creating systemic change and re-imagining impact in the digital age. X Billion Action Lab builds new age social movements that transform human behaviour, enable systemic change and leverage emerging technologies.
