On February 27, 2021, Dr. Rajesh Tandon will speak on ‘Migrant Workers Seek Rights With Dignity‘ during the Symposium on ‘Evolving Inclusive Communities for Greater Solidarity’.
The major burden of the pandemic was borne by the most vulnerable – the marginalised, disabled, the women and children in slums and rural areas. Would the Covid 19 Pandemic decimate our hopes and plans for a better-shared future? We believe not.
While the pandemic has posed serious challenges, extraordinary people like administrators, doctors, nurses, health care workers, teachers, police personnel and ordinary people evolved innovative ways to provide caring and affordable services to those in need.
Inclusive, sustainable approaches require a bedrock of Humanism in order to foster this in our youth.
The Symposium speakers will share their inspiring experiences about poverty alleviation, equity education, gender equality, environmental sustainability, safe drinking water and equitable trade agreements.
It is time to reflect, reboot, and renew our commitment to creating a better world for all.
