He is a tireless advocate for both the community’s interests as well as global interests.

Speakers at the conference discussed the ways and means for uniting like-minded citizens across the globe to promote tolerance and understanding. They opined that technology can be effectively used as a binding factor in uniting global citizens and should be now considered as basic human right and advocated free movement among countries to encourage sustainable development. The conference attempted defining a road map for British youth, on how best to use the advantages they have as native speakers of the most widely accepted language of the world to grow as professionals of the global workforce. 

Speaking on the occasion, Dr. Modi said that “Individuals and organizations need to align their activities to achieve the greater good of humanity, only then can we effectively resolve local and global problems. Hence, there is an urgent need to transcend the barriers of gender, nationality and religion and form a global identity that accepts all humans with equanimity. GCF is an initiative to promote such an awareness.”
