While commenting on the vision and objective of IIMUN and its programs, Rishabh Shah - Founder of IIMUN said, "The idea is to sensitise next-gen from across the globe to the concept of peace through spreading the idea of India in all countries across the world that - you can't change the mindset of todays leaders but you can help nurture that of tomorrow's leaders, today."
Rishabh Shah further added, "The participating students learned about yoga and Ayurveda in morning, through the day they were divided into groups for debate on a plethora of glocal issues and in the evenings luminaries from different walks of life come and share their thoughts. Honestly, what makes us smile is that tomorrow is going to even brighter than today. As they say - Indian at heart and international in their mind."
