The event developed an empathy with the issue of climate change, further encouraging youth to take ownership of the solutions by providing social entrepreneurship ideas by the industry leaders. Some of the sessions that struck a chord with the audience were Solar water pumps workshop by GIZ and 'Sustainability Doesn't Stand a Chance' session conducted by an NGO, Swaraj. The event was fueled with a number of interesting activities such as sustainability through art, street plays, dance, screening of documentaries, games and quizzes to make the subject relatable and interesting.
"The participation of the younger generation in climate protection is vital. Their power of ideation, enthusiasm and courage is unmatched and this voice needs to be carried to all decision makers and opinion leaders so as to bring about the desired change. This association of Dalmia Cement with Climate Jamboree is a conscious effort to empower the youth to reflect upon and act towards climate change and sustainability. We would like to call upon the decision makers in all segments of the society to help shape these ideas into reality and move a few steps closer to our goal of sustainability. It was great to see an exceptional participation from the youngsters and we look forward to a greater participation in the years to come," said Mr. Mahendra Singhi, MD and CEO, Dalmia Cement (Bharat) Ltd.
"The Climate Jamboree was a huge success. Not only did we reach the message of climate and sustainability - in all its facets - to a few thousand students but we also touched the lives of everyone associated with the event - panelists, speakers, sponsors, partners, media, vendors, service providers, support staff, families and friends. This has been a huge journey of discovery for all of us and we hope we can have a much bigger event the next year with many more partners," said Dr. Leena Srivastava, Vice Chancellor, TERI School of Advanced Studies.
Urging students to incorporate sustainable development in their daily lives, Ms. Swati Maliwal, Chairperson of the Delhi Commission for Women, said, "We all should feel the pain of mother earth and take the first step towards achieving sustainable development. Our injust actions on mother earth are today equal to the atrocities that women face in the country. We must realise that sustainable development is incomplete without realising the pain of women, and we should form effective systems in which timely justice is given, be it inflicted on women or the earth."
