International Buddhist Youth Convention (IBYC)
NNBY organized its first IBYC on Feb 2013 at Bodhgaya, Bihar. Around 175 youth participated from different states of India and 40 participants were from 13 different countries. The convention was presided by Dh. Subhuti- UK and chief guest of the program was Dr Ong See Yew from Singapore. The theme of the convention was “CHANGE THE MIND, CHANGE THE WORLD”
Since the inception of NNBY from 2006 we believe in “Grow Together with mutual love” and build the strong network not only within India but also across the border. NNBY has participated in many international Youth Exchange Program in countries like Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, America, Nepal, England, etc.
The objective behind organizing such convention is to understand the wider perspective of Buddhist Art and culture, Social, historical, Dhammic and various other aspect of youth subjects of their countries. The gathering brings the enclosure to each other and build the compassionate growth among themselves. NNBY after every three years will organize IBYC and will invite youth from different countries to share their views to transform self and the world.
