The Kantipur Conclave 2019 was an impressive event that brought together ideas and action from Nepal and beyond. The two-day event was dynamic in its delivery and range of speakers. With a good mix of women and men of different ages and experience, the first ever conclave by the Kantipur Media Group hit the note and ended on a high. The first day of the conclave also saw a keynote speech from Prime Minister KP Oli. The Day 2 of the conclave ended with the Kantipur Icon Awards in the evening with the presence of President Bidya Devi Bhandari.
Personally, Kantipur Conclave was impressive for me as I found many like myself there. The speakers and audience also consisted of doers and thinkers who are in their twenties and thirties. I met people I had blogged about during their early years and to hear their stories of growth was definitely a highlight. I would write more but I believe I have stated the conclave experience in the video below.
It was a pleasure to share the Youths for Nepal (English) session alongside Sumnima Udas, Sixit Bhatta and Shrinkhala Khatiwada and meet our moderator Leena Dahal. Additionally, I was also part of the Nepali Session on Day 2, Prawashi Nepali ra Muldesh, moderated by Basanta Basnet with speakers Jiba Lamichhane, Bhoj Raj Paudel and Mallika Shakya. The Nepali Session starts at 2 HRS 9 MINUTES mark.
