SRMD London Youth Festival 2023: Bridging Self-Discovery and Selfless Service

A dynamic collective experience bringing together hundreds of youth from across the UK

Amidst demanding routines and constant change, a chance for hundreds of youth to gather for a unique experience. One that will inspire dynamic action and thought.

Hosted by Shrimad Rajchandra Mission Dharampur (SRMD) UK, youth between ages 18 to 39 years will immerse in a journey of both – personal and social impact through the London Youth Festival 2023, to be held on 22nd and 23rd July at Merchant Taylors’ School, Northwood.

The SRMD London Youth Festival follows the success of the SRMD Global Youth Festival 2022 where over 3,000 youth from across the world participated in a unique blend of cultural, spiritual, humanitarian, social and athletic activities.

The SRMD London Youth Festival, inspired by spiritual visionary and global humanitarian Pujya Gurudevshri Rakeshji, will bring together youth from across the country and includes 25 remarkable events over two days to bring an exciting and innovative curated experience for the youth. 

Festival Highlights – Meet the Real You

Meet Your Compassion – In an effort to create a compassionate ripple in the lives of those who need it most, the festival features an impactful Hackathon to encourage innovative solutions to real-time social challenges, led by expert mentors including Shivani Pau, Founder of “A Millennial Mind” Podcast (Ranked Top 2% Podcast Globally). You can sign up to be one such changemaker and address diverse topics like Improving access to Mental Health for the South Asian communities, Re-Thinking Food Usage to ensure food security and Bridging the gap to Housing access. The solutions will be then pitched and presented to industry leaders, with an opportunity to take it further, implement and make a difference.

The Festival also includes a special Charity Firewalk; an experience where you can conquer your fears under the guidance of trained experts and challenge yourself whilst raising funds for worthy causes. 

Participants will also have the opportunity to come together to create personalised gift packs for children from low income households, homeless and the elderly, through an end-to-end production line.

Meet Your Purpose – To make a change externally and internally, there will be immersive and interactive Wisdom Masterclasses on various topics including self-reflection, stress management and enriching relationships.

Meet Your Peace – The Festival presents unique opportunities to align the body and mind through Experiential Wellness including chocolate meditation, glowstick meditation, techno yoga and Yogalates.  Sessions will be led by the Global Head of SRMD Yoga, Atmarpit Shraddhaji who shared the importance of holistic wellbeing; ‘Physical, mental, emotional and spiritual fitness has become of prime importance amidst our fast-paced & chaotic lives. Let us learn the art of burning karmic calories, nurture our hearts to live a happy, healthy and life!’

One can also engage in experience booths such as ‘The Art of Smart Living – Life Hacks to Take Home’, ‘Forging Your Way, Resume Making & Interview Skills’, and ‘Flex Your Mental Muscle, Unlock Your Brain’s Potential’.

Meet Your Strength – The power-packed schedule also includes a sports tournament featuring football, cricket, netball, and badminton as well as an opportunity to celebrate one’s heritage, through live dance, music and cultural performances.

There will also be an exciting panel discussion showcasing strong female changemakers who have created a real impact in society including Manisha Tailor MBE, Assistant Head of Coaching (U9-U16) at QPR Football Club, and the only person of South Asian heritage to hold such a position in the English professional game. Manisha Tailor MBE shared her thoughts ahead of the Festival ‘I am delighted to be part of a festival that promotes women empowerment and provides a safe space for the female voice which is crucial in ensuring that important conversations are had surrounding a range of issues that women still face all over the world which prevents them from succeeding in life.’

This unconventional festival welcomes everyone, irrespective of background, race or religion for a unique opportunity to connect with like-minded individuals and forge new relationships.
