At the India-Netherlands Youth Forum, we aim to create a team of seasoned and empowered young individuals who move on to become future leaders, while gaining whatever they can from global knowledge in general, and the India-Netherlands bilateral relations in specific.
We aim to provide a platform to the students to research, ideate, conceptualize and think out the box. We also facilitate interaction and dialogue with reputed personalities of the fields for their insights and guidance.
The Netherlands and India envisage a common future and sustainable development through technological innovation. Climate change has become one of the biggest threats to both the nations and especially, the Netherlands as almost 20% of its area is under threat of getting submerged as sea levels rise globally. In this context, we at the forum believe that the youth of both the countries must facilitate a greater exchange of ideas and cooperate on solutions, together. .
To fulfil this vision, over recent years, the forum members have indulged in dialogues with the diplomats at the embassy of the Kingdom of Netherlands. The forum frequently conducts virtual interactive sessions, policy briefs/research papers, public discussions on social media; offline events like food walks, focus groups, case studies among others. In the month of October 2020, the Forum organized its first Chat With a Diplomat session with Mr. Freek Jan Frerichs, Innovation Attaché and Ms. Karanpreet Kaur, Senior Policy Officer (Political Affairs, Human Rights and Education) at the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, New Delhi.

Her interest in international relations and foreign policy emerged when she flunked her first MUN. Ever since then, the journey’s been a rollercoaster. Interested in sociology, politics, history, economics and philosophy, Nandini enjoys enriching and enlightening discussions. Not much of a small talk person, but you can always start conversation with book recs, would be highly appreciated.
