The External Publicity & Public Diplomacy Division of Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) invites entries for naming its new public outreach initiative to connect with the students- the future of India.

Since the nuances of foreign policy issues are often appreciated by a niche audience; people in general, especially the students, do not have a complete understanding of the working of MEA. This programme proposes to familiarise school and college students about the role and functions of MEA, to introduce them to the key elements of India’s Foreign Policy and our achievements in a simple manner.

The programme will involve visits of Ministry’s officers to schools and colleges in their hometown/state during leave on a voluntary basis; interact with the students and share with them, their experiences of working with the Ministry of External Affairs as well.

This effort towards broad-basing Ministry’s outreach with the younger audience aims at increasing interest and awareness about MEA and its achievements.
