An interview with Astha about the 5th space

Astha from Pravah introduced that there are four spaces where youth spent most of their time, namely family, friends, career/career-related education, entertainment. Yet these four spaces are predominant by adults. Thus the idea of the 5th space is raised, which is co-led, co-created and co-designed by young people. The 5th space ensures that the voice of youth is heard and the needs of youth are met.
