We are in a unique stage in history, wherein youth are a majority. The power of youth is prone to be swayed in either direction. On one hand, there is growing fundamentalism and intolerance towards secular though and action. On the other, youth are looking for alternative life stance based on scientific outlook, rational thought & action and sustainable solutions.

The Conference will bring people from across the world and pan India. Atheists, humanists, skeptics, freethinkers, social workers, reformers, scientists, academicians, media and government representatives will attend this historic conference, on the eve of 80th Year of Atheist Centre.
The conference will help to build conversations and a stronger foundation to further strengthen
critical thinking, free inquiry and reform in the younger generation, who stand as the hope for the future of the world.
The conference will have plenary sessions with distinguished speakers followed by focus group discussion on youth and tolerance, atheism & humanism as a life stance, investigating claims of the paranormal, social justice, fundamentalism, humanist youth leadership, secular social work etc.
