Transformations Till Now
Netritva - Lead to Transform
Netritva, an attempt by The Art of Living towards creating individuals who could look beyond themselves , began with few young minds looking for something different to experiment. This internship proved it's goal clear to bring about a revolution with it's first project of painting the paan-stained walls and cleaning stinky and dirty streets of Anand Vihar ISBT. It managed to not only sensitise the daily passer by's but also compelled the authorities to build pavements and a washroom near the station. Next, to state it out loud and clear that health is not only about the physical environment but much more about the mental state of calmness and inner peace, a 4 Day Yes+ programme was organised in the North Campus. This programme gave everyone an opportunity to experience the magic of breathe and it's power of control . This enriching workshop was followed by giving the interns the task of teaching children and formulating a curriculum for them in schools across Delhi. The initiative was not limited to government schools but was also taken towards blind children and those studying at school near Tihar Jail. This 6 month long journey is about to end this January with Youth Conference- Sounds Of Leadership- to be organised by the interns. Hope to see you there!
Sounds Of Leadership
Sounds of Leadership is a day long event designed especially for the youth. A forum that brings bright young minds to interact in an open two-way conversation with their icons. A space where inspirational leaders from different spheres of life, share their success stories. It aims to bring together senior leaders from business, government, politics, science, NGOs, sports, academia, performing arts, writing, photography or film making, acting or media from all over the country, to reflect on the paradigms of leadership needed to maneuver the world today. The event, with its stellar line-up of dynamic leaders, is a perfect platform to exchange path-breaking ideas and celebrate keys to success. It gives the future leaders and inspired young people an opportunity to listen to those who have made it big. The event puts the hope and promise of young people on a glorious stage through ideas and conversations. It is a platform for young motivated individuals to come together to learn and cultivate from thought leaders, changemakers and youth icons across a broad spectrum of industries and interests. The aim of this event is to give young people the unique opportunity to interact with their favourite stars - the real achievers who have struggled, overcome and today are acknowledged leaders in their fields, to be inspired by them as they recount their unique experiences and give their Mantras of Success. Sounds of Leadership will be hosted by Netritva- the social internship initiated by the Art Of Living and International Association for Human Values (IAHV): organizations with a proven track record of building inclusive communities, resolving conflicts, advocating ethics and nurturing transformational leadership.
