NGC and IHC announce the fifth ‘Habitat Young Visionary Award 2008’

National Geographic Channel (NGC) and Delhi’s India Habitat Centre (IHC) are inviting undergraduate students from across the country to participate in the fifth annual ‘Habitat Young Visionary Award 2008’. This is an opportunity for youngsters to share their vision of a better India. It is an initiative that encourages the youth to ‘think again’ about the world they live in and initiate the process of change.

Rajesh Sheshadri, Senior VP-Content and Communication, NGC India, said, “At NGC, we are committed to provide relevant and relatable programming along with various on-ground initiatives that stimulate the intellect of our viewers, encouraging them to reassess the world they live in. Through our unique association with the India Habitat Centre, we look forward to inspire a spirit of creativity and innovative thinking among the youth, which is the think tank for our future.”

Raj Liberhan, Director, India Habitat Centre, said, “We are pleased to announce the fifth annual award for Habitat Young Visionary. It is a part of our conscious effort to initiate a process wherein young minds – while engaged in the pursuit of academic excellence – need to dwell on the concerns of the country as a part of their perspective. With NGC as our partner, we look forward to encourage the youth to initiate the thought process for the change they can lead for a better society.”

Application for the Habitat Young Visionary Award involves submission of a 1,500-word essay in English or Hindi on a specified topic. Based on the essay, 15 participants will be shortlisted for the semifinals and would be required to elaborate and defend their vision before a panel of eminent judges. Five participants will then be chosen for the finale to be held in January 2008.

The idea of the award is not to test the oratory skills of the participants, but to identify logical and novel solutions germinating in their minds to the issues faced by our country. The last date for submission of entries is November 15, 2007. The winner of the award will get the opportunity to attend a fully-paid summer programme sponsored by the India Habitat Centre at the Cambridge University, UK. The first runner-up will get an internship opportunity with the NGC, while the other three finalists will get a chance to intern with an established NGO.
