The Joust organized by Parola - the Literary Hub of JIIT, is the annual literary festival of Jaypee Institute of Information Technology, Sector-62, Noida. It celebrates the magnificence of literature and showcases the power of eloquence.
After four successful editions, The Joust is back with its 5th edition, which is scheduled on 28th and 29th September with a total of 9 events intended to cater to the interests of debaters, orators, poets, writers, journalists and general knowledge enthusiasts alike.
To raise the bar a notch higher and learn along the way, The Joust invites all the creative writers, critical thinkers and efficient orators to come forth and partake in the battle of words.
The following 9 events will mark this festival:
National Integration Council (NIC): The National Integration Council (NIC) is a group of senior politicians and public figures in India that look for ways to address the problems of communalism, casteism and regionalism. This year at the Joust 2019, we are here with the agenda “Discussion on the challenges against equitable development with special emphasis on socio-economic, religious and regional inequalities.”
If you believe that the issues that we are trying to address need immediate attention, we welcome you to be the voice of change.
United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO):
The purpose of UNESCO is to promote international collaboration in education, science, and culture. As UNESCO stands firm with its goals to ensure the right to education and equality of opportunities in the war torn zones of the world, we at the Joust are simulating this committee with the agenda, "Improving access to education for refugees and migrants in post-conflict areas".
We welcome you to share your opinions to achieve global visions of sustainable development and improve the access to education.
International Organization for Migration (IOM): The International Organization for Migration (IOM) is an organization that provides service and advice concerning migration to governments and migrants, including internally displaced persons, refugees and migrants. This year at The Joust, the agenda for IOM is “Addressing Climate Migration and Cross-Border Disaster Displacement.”
To raise awareness about the multiple reasons why the flow of migration is such a delicate issue, this simulation helps you voice your concern.
The Press: The Press includes different forms of media, focusing on delivering information to the general public. The Press requires reporters, who will be writing articles and photographers who will be capturing every moment along the way. This simulation demonstrates the influence of the press in an interconnected world. We at The Joust, are here to provide you with a platform to raise your voice against the issues at hand and to ensure that media truly does remain the fourth pillar of democracy.
