The 2nd of December saw us journeying to Chennai for the 3rd of a series of 8 INK Youth events.

INK Youth is association with RASA Trust is a program in its inception, for middle and high school students, providing them the opportunity to engage in hands-on activities, cross-disciplinary dialogue, and hear from thought leaders and innovators – scientists, designers, technologists, explorers, artists, performers – with an aim to inspire, educate and create awareness. It is a student driven initiative designed to create conversation and build communities across schools (students, parents and teachers) through continuous engagement initiatives.

We had the pleasure of being hosted at the beautiful American International School, Chennai campus for this event which was hosted as part of our Fellows series featuring 3 INK Fellows – Sandesh Reddy, Kenta Koga, Vandana Srinivasan and Sarvesh Shashi. Amongst other speakers, we also heard from 3 student speakers who covered the topics ‘apathy’, ‘video games and their potential’ and ‘reflection’.
