The Spandan Youth Summit aims at harnessing and harvesting ideas from the community of soon to be young adults - ideas that are capable of being shaped into concrete policy actions that secure the biosphere.

The meet will encourage youngsters to transcend individual differences in cultures, beliefs and practices, and to develop a broader, united worldview of the climate change scenario. Participants would fetch the messages of declaration to their homeland.

The Spandan Youth Summit which culminates at the Spandan Eco Foundation, Panchgani is being coordinated by two lead schools - Campion High School, in South Mumbai from where the Summit begins and St. Peter's School will manage the Panchgani part of the program at the Spandan Eco Foundation.

Spandan Youth Summit is to start pulsating energies in shaping our corner of the planet - and in turn being shaped by the natural & social environment - including urban & rural youth. The Spandan Youth Summit is a student driven programme as we believe it is their thoughts and the actions that flow from them that will stop climate chaos. The younger generation has no alternative - else risk the end of birth - which is called extinction - thousands of species have already disappeared... When that happens in a bioregion with a bewildering spectrum of bio-diversity it becomes a hotspot. And Spandan Eco Foundation is in the heart of one of the hotspots of bio-diversity on the planet - located on the shoulder of the highest points on our Western Mountain Ranges.
