#UNMANIFESTO TAMIL NADU 2016
The largest Youth Crowd Sourced Manifesto for Tamilnadu State Assembly Elections 2016 -“Demand to be a part of Democracy” and Raised Youth Voice towards sustainable development of Tamilnadu. The UnManifesto Campaign seeks to engage youth in the political process beyond simply voting during elections. This campaign aims at getting young people to participate in all aspects of the political story, rather than just the tip of the iceberg – the voting process.
In order to make sure this campaign reaches as many youth voices as possible and that it is truly a national and youth led process, a National Coalition of partners has came together to commit effort and time to the UnManifesto Campaign until India’s parliament General elections 2014. It is imminent that youngsters come up and play an active role in the political dynamics of the country. The first step towards that is “having a voice” and making it heard: Do you know how a political manifesto is designed and developed? Have you ever had a national political party come up to you to discuss what you want in your manifesto? For the first time ever, we gave the opportunity to youngsters to create their own manifesto and present it to top political leaders from the leading party and the opposition of the nation, with a clear promise that they will take in the promises of youngsters for their manifesto making process.
