The Young Leader's Programme

The Foundation's central focus is to organize the Young Leaders Programme, where 10-15 promising leaders under 40 years of age from both countries will interact over a 4-day period to discuss and debate current issues and pressing questions. The 2023 Young Leaders Programme was held from the 13th to the 16th of April, between New Delhi and Bengaluru. The programme will be held alternately between India and France.


The Young Leaders are chosen based on their exemplary contributions to the fields of business, politics, sports and culture across backgrounds. Selected for their remarkable achievements, the Young Leaders will be poised to play a significant role in future Franco-Indian relations.
