About Us

Indian Youth Nuclear Society, abbreviated as IYNS, is a non-profit organization based in India. The main objective of this organization is to spread awareness about the benefits of nuclear technologies among general public and encourage Indian youth to learn and contribute to Indian Nuclear Program. Our organization is committed to ensure that the information about the benefits of nuclear technology should reach to each one of us. However, nuclear energy being a part of the solution to fight climate change, our organization has evolved as the platform to discuss about renewable energy sources as well.

Logo of IYNS

The nuclear shaped tricolor head forms the crown of holy Banyan Tree. The tricolor represents the Indian Flag. Its nuclear shape is the mark of nuclear related organization. This upper part of emblem signifies the grandeur of Peaceful use of nuclear technologies in India.

The globe placed above the human body acts as the face and head of the man. This also highlights the presence of India in the growing nuclear world. It signifies the important role and cooperation of India with the global community.

The human body acting as the trunk of Banyan tree signifies the strength, courage, longevity and righteousness. Along with this, the open handed human figure also signifies the independence, freedom, joy and unity of our society. The acronym below the emblem shows the roots of the Banyan tree which binds all the components altogether.

IYNS reserves all the rights of its logo to use it for identification, promotion and all other purpose.
