ITANAGAR: Rajiv Gandhi University organized a conference on Wednesday, “G20: University Connect, Engaging Young Minds’, in collaboration with the Research and Information System for Developing Countries (RIS) under the Union External Affairs Ministry and North East Training, Research, and Advocacy (NETRA). RGU is one of the 75 selected universities across the country for the commemoration of the 75 years of Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav.

The programme was mostly youth-oriented to create awareness among the young students about the G20 summit and India’s presidency for the year 2023, as well as how it will affect them and what responsibilities they can take on as youth. Gracing the occasion, Legislative Assembly Speaker Pasang Dorjee Sona highlighted the origin of the motto of the G20 summit 2023: Vasudeva Kuttambakam—One World, One Family. Sona, who is also the chairman of the G20 summit in Arunachal Pradesh, said that the world here does not only mean the humans but everything that is in the world, including the plants, animals, insects, resources, and the humans.

He also was of the opinion that the name G20 must be G21, actually inclusive of the vast African Union, with a total population of 1.4 billion people and their vast flora and fauna. Sona focused mainly on the youths and their importance of confidence in them and was of the opinion that the youths have become passive and just carry on without actually knowing or thinking of the affects and impacts of various issues. He appealed to the youth to introspect within and out deeply of the many events that occur and create an opinion of their own rather than just following about.

“Technology and innovation comes with boons and banes and it is upon the person who is using it and how he is using it. We as users, many times fail to use the technology and innovation responsibly which in turn affect the youths and their mental health. As it is said that with great power come great responsibility and therefore it is our responsibility to use it in a good manner with the knowledge of how it can harm you and your family,” the speaker added. In his keynote address, Ambassador Satbir Singh dwelt on Indian vision of leading the world. He added that the G20 programs are not limited to the government but it should be taken to the common people of the country. He also referred to the vision of Prime Minister Narendra Modi of One World rather than first world or second world.
