Symposium Speaker at Middlesex University

I have immense pleasure to announce my participation as Speaker at the Symposium at Middlesex University (Mauritius Branch).

The MDX Media Cluster, a student-led society at the university, is organising a symposium with theme “The Global Community: Building The Next Step” on Saturday 20th February 2016 from 10:00 until 13:00.



We live in a world where we’ve ended up living in a system, in a cycle. As the world’s problems become more global in reach, how can people’s domain of altruism be extended accordingly? What concrete steps can be taken to strengthen the bonds of the community?

The purpose of this event is to act as a catalyst for the youth, to change our mind-set and face the truth as it is. As well, this event aims at impacting on our individual lives in light of dynamic global pressures, with calls to action over the next few years and beyond.


The symposium shall adopt a similar style to the successful and energetic style format of TEDx events with a mix of short thought-provoking clips and interventions, probing interactive talks along with a lively audience.

The organising body aims to have a good cross cutting panel of speakers representing various fields related to the theme of the symposium, with different point of views as well. The latter shall normally consist of a maximum of four orators.

Date and Time

10:00 – 13:00 on Saturday, February 20, 2016


The organising body aims to attract a good cross section of youngsters aged between 17 and 25 inclusive. The symposium will be open to the general public as long as they fit in the targeted age group.

My intervention

I would be speaking mostly on the points that i had raised in my article entitled, “What’s the Point of being a Youth?“.

  • 35% of the population of the African continent is young people
  • To include the youth in decision-making and to fight back the elders
  • Our weapons: to build up a solid, and more important a sustainable, reputation
  • To shift from immature, irresponsible and untrustworthy branding to that of a responsible, innovative and trustworthy youth African community
  • “If you want the right thing, then start doing the right thing!”

If you wish to attend the event, register on

  1. All the best Krishna! Sad though I won’t be able to attend it since I live overseas, but I’m sure it will be a huge success 🙂 My encouragements and support from afar are with you. Good luck!

      1. You are welcome dear 🙂 I really enjoy the fruit of your work, though I heard about you merely. Hope you are doing fine and had a nice time and a fructuous working session during your trip overseas. Have a blissful day 🙂
