The Eternal Flame of Youth is being constructed under the sponsorship of the MTV and MBC Media Network.

The foundation stone for the Eternal Flame of Youth was laid under the auspices of the Acting Minister of Youth Affairs and Skills Development, Mohan Lal Grero.

The event was broadcast live on Sirasa TV from the National Youth Services Council premises in Maharagama and Stein Studios in Ratmalana.
Director (Operations) of Sri Lanka Youth, Ajith Naragala said: “When the Commonwealth Youth Summit was held in Sri Lanka, Sirasa TV, which has always joined hands with us, toured the country together with Sri Lanka Youth, providing media sponsorship and helping us to raise awareness among the people about the Commonwealth Summit. And today, through the Around the World in 40 Days programme, Sirasa TV together with Sri Lanka Youth is touring the world to raise awareness on the World Conference on Youth.”
Group Director, Electronic Media Business of The Capital Maharaja Organisation Limited Nedra Weerasinghe shared these views;
