HAPPENINGS @ FLAME

The latest happenings in the FLAME Community

FLAME Purpose Summit is a platform for prominent public figures from all walks of life to come together and discuss various facets of Purpose, the driving force that shapes the actions of individuals, institutions, nations, and the world at large. This congregation has become more relevant than ever as we face uncertain times. Goals that foster a sense of purpose can potentially touch and transform lives and make an impact.

As a university that grooms leaders for the future, we at FLAME University believe that it is our responsibility to enable and channel critical conversations to help various stakeholders discover their sense of 'Purpose.' FLAME Purpose Summit 2021 enabled conversations and exchange of views between policymakers, business heads, academicians, political leaders, journalists, social workers, artists, and entrepreneurs.

The two-day virtual Summit received a rousing response and resonated across a large section of the audience. It has paved the way for many such relevant Summits in the future.
