Creativity, playfulness, fresh energy – young changemakers are bringing something new to problem-solving for justice. From being seekers of justice they are shifting into purposeful and thoughtful leaders, They know how to understand the needs of people, mobilise communities, work with local authorities and processes, deal with imperfect information, create awareness, find solutions and take action.

Anand Gandhi, in conversation with 3 such young justicemakers; Vibha Nadig, Disha Wadekar and Suhaib Salman, asks When the building blocks of justice are rooted in human capacity and emotion to affect change, how does it transform our collective experience of justice?

In collaboration with Agami
