"The Economic Justice Conclave (EJCON) is Sarla Anil Modi School of Economics' flagship event held annually. It is India's second and Mumbai's first Student- led conclave. At EJCON, we look at economic opportunities as a means of uplifting people from social oppression and marginalisation, helping them to be financially independent, thus facilitating social mobility."
WHAT WE DO?
THE FOUR PILLARS
An endeavour to talk about issues plaguing the society with experts in the field.
Striving to map out solutions to these issues via the tool of the public - policy
Social outreach aims to create a real impact- they work the change and not just talk about it. They don’t just discuss the problems, but work the solutions.
Integrating the zealous youth into the process of change to search and polish future catalysts of social welfare
ACTION BY YOUTH

The discussions that constructed the Conclave strove to solve problems of the times that have snowballed into an environmental crisis while speculating all that such trends could culminate into. Panel discussions, town hall sessions, social drives, awareness activities and the elite policy challenge debuted in the Conclave.

EJCON 2021 held a series of discussions with eminent champions of Equality through social, economic and creative outlets - an effort to understand roots of human equity and parity.
