“I feel Youth Initiative should not measure itself necessarily by the number and amount of concrete projects and outcomes delivered at the end of the camp but rather by the number of minds that are transformed and empowered which only becomes clear over a longer period of time” – Ngawang Gyeltshen, YI Steering Committee Member

Taking learning beyond the confines of our Media lab into the boundless walls of one’s mind, the members of YI 2020 hiked from Changangkha to Kuensel Phodrang (Buddha Point) on day 4. Singing, walking, talking about life and appreciating the pristine nature, the members bonded further as a community. The members decided among themselves to pick up any litter on the trail.
