Summary

A Jagrik or Jagruk Nagrik in Hindi means aware citizen. The project motivates young people or Jagriks to own up the Constitution of India and the SDGs through a board game. The game enables young people between 14 to 30 years across India translate civic education to reflact (reflect +act) journeys and experience real life concerns (social, political and ecological) that cannot be taught in classrooms nor acquired as a gift. It has to be experienced on the streets in daily life.

Challenge

In a diverse country like India, inequality is one of biggest issue . To bind us all into one common story, one that connects us, irrespective of differences is The Constitution of India and Sustainable Develooment Goals.To bridge inequalities our constitution (Samvidhan in Hindi) needs to come alive in the streets. For our youth, to understand the Constitution and the SDGs, it needs to be lived by making the world a classroom. They need to learn their rights and duties from experience.

Solution

We will create Jagriks (awakened and aware in Hindi) across the country. The initiative this year will walk young people (Jagrik) across 14 states to engage with the common story of the Indian Constitution and SDGs through a board game - Be a Jagrik - Samvidhan LiveLive the SDGs!Through this game played in pairs, Jagriks participate in real social action tasks combining the SDGs and the constitution over a period of 4 weeks. Every week they reflect on their learning through group meetings.

Long-Term Impact

A vibrant citizenry of 156000 engaged, responsible, aware adolescents and youth who understand real life challenges within the constitutional framework and be conscious of the sustainability paradoxes the world faces. Bringing the Indian Constitution and the achievement of SGDs out of the class room and into the streets and getting young people to make the world their classroom. Creating a learning and sharing opportunity for young people to engage with the common story of fraternity.
