MitSna’s MOT (Massive Open Talk) 2022 was held at the GM hall, Imphal on Sunday under the theme of “Employing the youth transforming for a sustainable future”.
Speaking to the media, MitSna chief executive Micheal Atom said that to prepare youth for the challenges of the future, they introduce Massive Open Talk (MOT) to empower them. With a vision to create a generation of employers and young entrepreneurs, MOT has been introduced as a platform of sharing ideas from various intellectuals for logical and critical thinking outcomes, Atom said.
This is the second edition of MOT with the first held in 2019. However, it was stopped due to COVID, Atom informed, adding that today, MOT engages different intellectuals from various fields to lighten the youths' insight.
Manipur’s current education system is more focused on producing people who are only trained to crack exams leading to only a few professional streams, he said. Institutionalization has affected secondary schools to a great extent and we are only focused on preparing the kids for these standardized tests. So, to transform the scenario of preparing habits for youth's future, the MOT has been initiated, he said.
MD and CEO of JCRE Skill Solution, L Niranjan; education rights activists, Grace Jajo; MIMS former director, Ch Ibohal Meitei; social scientist Dhanabir Laishram and MPS Victoria Yengkhom also attended the event.
