This is no tongue-in-cheek! The Peoples’ Summit was a free educational program of informed dialogue regarding the economic, social and political problems facing the world. It coincided with the G-20 Summit in Pittsburgh, and garnered attendance of above 700 people.
People’s Labs had an informational table at the Summit which drew interest from several community organizers! Geeta stirred interest in students who were exploring how to shape their careers to serve the community, by drawing upon what People’s Labs has to offer. Ayan had been involved in the planning and publicity of the Summit, and voluntarily serves as the webmaster of the informative Summit website. He was interviewed at the Summit for a long segment by an independent local television channel, in which he contrasted socio-economic challenges in developing countries and those in the US.

We generated quite a bit of enthusiasm.
