Science Technology and Socio Economic Development

Development is related to the science and technology prevalence in the society. The converse is also true. STAD has chosen its mandate to translate fruits of science technology into societal development. All its activities are aimed at fulfilment of objectives of empowered citizens and societies.

Science Communication

A forward looking society must appreciate science and technology and develop attitudes which are rational and scientific. This is also essential for achieving sustainability in the practises and actions in the long run. STAD recognises this fact and has embraced science communication and science popularisation in its vision for charting out activities for masses. It is Science and Technology confluence with Media and Communication for achieving the objectives.

Knowledge Initiatives

Knowledge is power and STAD shall utilise every opportunity to harness it for the advantage of society. Knowledge initiative is to bridge the gap most often talked about in policy and planning circles.

Empowerment through Skill Acquisition

Enormous mass of society is devoid of the fruits of modern development, evident so far in urban pockets. It has to percolate down to rural vastness.

Skills are to be the key for this transformation. There is a large population of young Indians who are candidates for empowerment through skill acquisition. India is up for imparting skills to its millions of unutilised potent hands.

Social Change

Change is the essence of life. Change is desirable for the good. This change demands new outlook.

STAD shall work with the masses for a new social order based on equality and rationality. It is built on the foundation of education, scientific thought and skill & knowledge. It is devoid of social, economic and gender biases. It is the social order of equal opportunities.

India Initiatives

India inherited institutions replete with colonial ethos. This is possibly the best explanation for common man left over by the fast pace of development that India has managed to achieve in recent past. Reforms are necessary at philosophical and practical levels. This can be achieved by transparency in governance and pro citizen governance. Justice and equality should be the key. ‘India Initiatives’ are meant to see people’s  participation in the governing and decision making process and provide a mechanism for addressing grievance with any of the constituent of Indian polity and administration.
