Breezy beginning for the first BackBenchers Conference
Mattul is a laid back sun kissed coastal village, cozily snuggled in a time warp. BBc (BackBenchers conference) couldn’t get a better and appropriate place than Mattul, a place still struggles to bring the light of knowledge in the coastal areas.
The BBc was inaugurated by Mr. TV Rajesh MLA. The third bureau of Peace Gong was launched in Kannur during the week long BackBenchers conference on education. The Panchayat President Ms Hayarunnisa presided over the function. Miss Farsana was elected as the first Chief Editor of the bureau.
The function was conducted in the presence of Peace Gong national advisors Ms. Laila Saein and Anil Emage. The chief coordinator of the bureau is Mr Mohammed Ashkar, head of Bright Institute for Advanced Studies, Mattool, Kannur.
During the BackBenchers Conference, the Peace Gong bureau members participated in an online workshop on the International Year of Soils in association with AFRC (Academic Forum for Research & Communication) and Radijojo Global Children`s radio Network, Berlin Germany.
