India's National Youth Policy encourages their full participation and engagement at all levels of governance. They are driven, agile and can influence behaviour change at the grassroots level. This briefing note is a synthesis of an expert panel discussion on the role of youth in sanitation, which took place in New Delhi, India, on 26 April 2019. The India Sanitation Coalition, IRC, and TARU Leading Edge organised the dialogue as part of the Insights series. The panellists included Aayush Baid from The Global Education & Leadership Foundation, Afsal Muttikkal from Genrobotics, Amit Arora from Doordarshan, Gurukirrat Sachdeva from Youth Ki Awaaz, and Ruchika Shiva from IRC. The dialogue highlighted the positive role and impact of the youth in the Swachh Bharat Mission (SBM), India's national sanitation programme. It stressed that the youth should be aware of the existing challenges and inequities in society, so that they are able to hold leaders accountable.
