Empathy in a holistic sense may be related to a diverse array of ideas. Science and technology, medical sciences, arts and culture, social sciences all culminating into social justice and development, falls within our idea of 'Empathy'. The reason why we chose our theme as 'empathy', is to relate to a plethora of ideas. We want it to be an inspirational event which not only propagates ideas but seeds them as well.
Our theme is not binding on the diverse ideas that we plan on propagating. We plan on integrating physical science and social science ideas culminating into holistic solutions to make the world a better place.
