Winter Session 2016

We welcome your application for MY Parliament Winter Session 2016.

Democracy today is taking leaps and strides towards reaching the people of the world. The governance structures of the world are changing, transitions are being made towards freedom of press, emergence of the civil society and awareness of citizen participation. In this vibrant scenario, MY Parliament stays committed to its aim of making youth participation the cornerstone of a rising India and the upcoming Winter Session has been modelled with this objective in mind.

The MY Parliament Winter Session simulation is an attempt to make voices heard, to shape opinions within the framework of parliamentary processes and deliberate upon solutions through the lens of the Indian Constitution. MY Parliamentarians will get an opportunity to get acquainted with basic Parliamentary procedures, their translation in legislative parlance and application in the political system. Along with the simulation of the Parliamentary process in the Lok Sabha, there will be debates, panel discussions and Policy Dialogues.

They will be woven around current policy and societal issues gnawing at the country today. MY Parliament has been conducting such simulations for past two years and we intend to take forward this concept with greater vigour and detail in this Winter Session.
