About  SAY-X 

 What  is

SAY-X, or the South Asian Youth X-Change, is an organisation focused on igniting a period of change defined by the ambitions of the youth of today, in pursuit of a better world from every aspect. As a driver of this very vital change, SAY-X boasts representation from 8 South Asian Nations: India, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Bhutan, Bangladesh & the Maldives.

The organisation is partnered with the United Nations Young Changemakers Conclave, and is based in Mumbai, India. Connecting with over 45 schools across 8 countries, SAY-X bridges discussions and dialogue between extremely carefully selected SAY-X student-advocates from the 8 nations. The primary medium for SAY-X's interactions is a virtual conference.

The end product and final culmination of the efforts, is the SAY-X Proclamation: a formally drafted document with synthesised clause-by-clause suggestions directly from the youth, to the current world governance. These topics include Education & Vocation, Healthcare, Technology, Freedoms & Liberties, SAARC Emergence, and Environmental Sustainability.

Some  Hard Facts 

 1 in 5  people in the world live in 8 SAARC nations

 1.8 billion  people (1 in 5 in the world), are part of the youth

*of an age between 10 and 25

 One-Third  of UN Sustainable Development Goals are directed at the youth

The average age of a parliamentary legislator globally is  53 

It is said that facts must be faced.

This is the reality that  SAY-X  aims to act on.

The  Team 

 Vivaan Kabir 

Founder, President

Vivaan founded SAY-X with the vision of beginning a journey for those in 'Generation Z'. The unpredictability with which the youth today lives in regards with their future, is what pushes and inspires Vivaan. He strongly feels the need to act upon being told 'you need to make the change'. Along with his highly talented Organising Committee, Vivaan is proud to lead  and  launch  SAY-X  to  all.
